Ridge Elementary School Ratings & Reviews

I love Ridge, I attended all my elementary years there. The staff is very effective and compassionate. There is no one who is ever treated unfairly or differently. They are very respectful and greatly appreciated.

We have a student in Ridge and live in the neighborhood. We are ecstatic with the quality of education and instruction our son has received. The teachers seem to love working in the school and have "buy in" to the school program. The school is beautifully diverse. Anyone considering this school should see the diversity, both economic and ethnic, as a positive aspect of this school. The rating on greatschools is way off. GreatSchool's metrics seem to punish schools that have English Language Learners. We have found the the supports that are out in place for ELL students have also benefited our student. Additionally, are child is learning about new cultures as the school reflects the future diversity that this generation will experience. Please, please consider Ridge, and the surrounding neighborhood as a destination for your family. It is a wonderful place. (My wife and I are licensed educators and I process a doctoral degree in education).

I will piggyback on the previous parent's post by admitting to being anxious about sending my 5 year old to Ridge. I will admit seeing the 5 on great schools, as well as it being Title 1 made me apprehensive. In the months leading up to him starting school at Ridge, I asked many Ridge parents I met at the school playground about their experience and they all overwhelmingly said they love this school. I was still skeptical. I will say I have been so pleased with my son's progress in the 2 months he's been at this school. The instruction is absolutely wonderful. My son is happy to go to school everyday, and he loves his teacher!!i have not seen where there are crazy behavior issues. In fact, my son's kindergarten teacher doesn't have a behavior modification plan in place because he says he doesn't need one. Behavior definitely does not take away from instruction from what I have seen. The PTA seems very active within the school, and there are many opportunities for parents to participate if they so desire. Overall, I have been extremely pleased by what I have seen so far. My son is happy and is learning....what more can a parent want for their child.

We have recently moved to Ridge and after seeing a five rating on Great Schools I was nervous. However I have been nothing but pleased with Ridge. I have three children attending Ridge. My oldest two children were identified as gifted in our previous school district. We are in the midst of going through that process at Ridge. I was nervous that my children would not feel challenged in this period, but the faculty and staff have done everything in the world to enrich their school experience as to create a fun and active learning environment. My children are loving their school. Yes, this is a diverse school but it enriches the life of the school. The teachers are more than qualified to teach to various levels and from what I can tell the school does a wonderful job at working with all the students. My children look forward to going to school and are driven by innovative teachers who go above simply teaching for the test.

I cannot find any reason that Ridge would rate a 5 out of 10. This rating scale is far from the reality and misrepresents the school. I am an active PTA parent at Ridge. I have been for 10 years. Ridge Staff and teachers do a great job of meeting the needs of our students and families. The Title 1 program helps our school to go above and beyond in providing assistance needed for students. Many of our principals have been promoted because of the wonderful results they have achieved at Ridge. The school remains fully accredited throughout the years, even when neighboring schools have fallen behind. The staff puts a lot of effort forth to promote enthusiasm for learning. The staff is very involved and responsive to our PTA. We have many parents who are in the school regularly during the day to assist teachers, promote programs, and enhance Parent-teacher communication through newsletters and other items. Ridge has also adjusted its teaching to the wide range of student abilities by adding IE classes, gifted resources, and multi-level math classes. Each year Ridge sends students on to Tuckahoe MS IB, Moody MS, and Three Chopt gifted.If you have concerns about Ridge, please contact the school directly. They can provide you with a tour of the school or answer your questions and concerns via email or phone. Also, please ask to be put in touch with our PTA. We are very proud of our school and its accomplishments, so we'd be happy to answer any questions.
