Mountain Ridge High School Ratings & Reviews

September 26, 2016 Submitted by a parent
Overall Mountain Ridge is a very good high school with the majority of the teachers being exceptional. I feel that my child is receiving a strong education and many of the teachers are truly experts in their field. There have been a couple of Science teachers (not Ms. Schramm - love her) that could benefit from some mentoring on organizational skills and how to communicate to teenagers - being condescending does not work, it only make them lose respect for you and dislike your class and it is not how people speak to each other in the "real"world. With that said, some of the best English, History and Math teachers work here and THE best Spanish teacher in the Valley (Mr. Ormsby).

I am a parent of 2 children who attended and graduated from Ridge. From the administration down to the teachers, everyone was professional and caring. The quality of the teaching staff, their dedication and willingness to spend outside time helping and tutoring students is amazing. The school has one of the top rated AP curriculum's in the state, incredible passing stats, a great honors program. One student of mine took majority honors and AP classes, my other student took Honors, Dual Enrollment and AP classes. They have prepared my kids for college and the challenges they will face.

I have gone to Mountain Ridge for all four years of high school, and I will be graduating in 2015. The education is a bit of a mess. Basically, half the teachers act like their teaching college and the other half act like they're working a day care. The quality of education a student receives at MRHS is left entirely up to which teachers they are given. Same goes for grades. I have had two extremely bitter and unhappy teachers that simply refused to give out As. I have also had teachers that have great personalities but give everyone As and Bs. The school really doesn't care about the education. ALL THEY CARE ABOUT IS CRIME. They are constantly searching kids for drugs or weapons that don't exist and harassing students that make "threats". They should stop focusing all their time on catching students doing something bad and actually focus on teaching. The admin is likely unaware of the teaching issues because they send around administrators to observe the teachers, but the teachers act entirely different when admin is present. The teachers even warn the students that if they misbehave when admin is there, they'll get penalized in grading.

If you read all the other posts, you will see that many people say that the school doesn't care about kids that aren't in honors or AP. Let me just tell you, that is not true. Many of the parents that are complaining probably just listen to what their child says, but what the child says isn't necessarily true, just his/her perspective. I take both honors and regular classes, and the teachers do great in both. They challenge the students, even the struggling ones, to do the best they can do. Most teachers, except in AP, which is to be expected, will even take the time to go back and help people who are struggling with a unit. I am currently a sophomore at the school, and I have to say that I am loving it. The administration does amazing considering the school has over 2000 students. Also, the teachers are great at settling down the kids in the classroom so they have plenty of time to teach. This school deserves the 5 stars I gave it, and don't listen to the students who didn't try, or the parents who didn't get involved.
