The Long Ridge School Ratings & Reviews
The Long Ridge School is an incredibly special learning community. Children are challenged academically, yet always respected, supported and cherished. The teachers, administration and parents all endeavor to make new families feel welcome. The beautiful grounds often serve as an outdoor classroom, as well as a place to explore and imagine. The music program is nothing short of magical. We had to move out of state due to a job relocation. While our son is happy and adjusting to his new school, we miss almost everything about Long Ridge.
LRS has been the perfect fit for both my boys, who are as different as can be academically and temperamentally. They both love school, have the greatest respect for their teachers, and have become strong critical thinkers. It would not occur to them to be apathetic or dismissive of school and learning. The collaborative nature of the classrooms and the size of the school have helped my boys develop strong social skills.
The Long ridge school has built a strong foundation for both my boys. The teachers are exceptional. They nurture and guide with loving care and individualized attention, and each year they have exceeded our expectations at every grade level. The specialists for Spanish, Science, PE, Art and Music work with students from an early age, building on a child's skills year after year. I would highly recommend The Long Ridge School.
My child has attended the Long Ridge School since he was 3 years old. With a focus on academic excellence while keeping the unique qualities of each child in mind, LRS has been a wonderful place for learning for my son. The curriculum really emphasizes a hands-on learning approach with theme driven interdisciplinary lessons. The themes are rich, global & relevant - they equip the child with a solid 21st. Century education. LRS encourages students to think & converse about what they are learning. They read, question, listen and reflect to ensure they have cemented a deeper understanding in the subject matter. They are also encouraged to present their individual thoughts - discuss them, problem solve together in teams via creative ways. LRS has been an exceptional experience & I believe, prepares children well for middle & high school.
My sons have attended Long Ridge since they were 2 and have had the great fortune to be part of a learning environment that is meaningful and encourages exploration and expression of ideas. They are part of small classes that allow for close interaction with their teachers who really understand each child's unique personality. Using an interdisciplinary curriculum all the teachers share the common goal of instilling in their students a love of learning. They strive for students to go forth as life long learnes who understand that they are part of a global community.
