The suspect is a pupil at the school in Krasny Desant village, Rostov region, with the attacker wearing an Anonymous or Guy Fawkes mask during the rampage.
Reports from law enforcement claim the attacker used his grandmother’s kitchen knife.
Regional governor Vasily Golubev said: “The attacker has been stopped by witnesses. He turned out to be a 9th-form student.”
Historic images of the child have been found showing him wearing the uniform of Yunarmia, or Young Army, which has been accused of militarising young people in the past.
Larisa Shakhovaya, a security guard, and English teacher Yulia Naumenko both were wounded in the hand as they tried to subdue the suspect.
He is understood to have eventually been halted by parents.
One student’s grandfather was also injured in the incident.
Police are understood to have been told by the suspect that he wanted to attack his social studies teacher for giving him “poor grades”.
At the time of writing, the conditions of the injured remain unknown as does the status of the school.
