Cedar Ridge Middle School 5

Cedar Ridge Middle School challenges students by offering the following: Robotic Teams, Math Teams, Scholars Bowl, Spelling Bees, Geography completions, Chess Club, Future City completions, Concert Band, Performing Arts, National Junior Honor Society, Duke TIP, and lessons in Creative Thinking Skills. The principal strongly encourages each student to read daily at their grade level and higher and to have a book with them at all times. The principal, assistant principals, and teachers of Cedar Ridge Middle School challenge all students to achieve their maximum potential in the class room. So if your child wants to learn and be challenged, then Cedar Ridge is the Middle School for your child. Also, students that want to learn can participate in the Dauphin Island Sea Lab’s nationally recognized Discovery Hall Programs about marine environments. During the three-day field trip, students are immersed in activities such as, dissecting squid, trawling in the waters of Mobile Bay, and seining in salt marshes in order to gain a hands-on understanding about coastal and ocean issues.

My children love Mrs. Fleischauer (Enrichment) and Ms. Raney (Band Director). Both teachers expect the best from my children and both teachers go the extra mile to enhance the education of my children.

Cedar Ridge Middle School offers excellent “honors” classes in math, language, and science for gifted students and students that want to learn. My children love Mrs. Fleischauer (Enrichment) and Ms. Raney (Band Director). Cedar Ridge Middle School teachers expect the best from their students and the teachers go the extra mile to enhance the education of their students. If you want a wonderful education for your child, then Cedar Ridge is the middle school for your family. My whole family loves Cedar Ridge Middle School, which is the best middle school in the Decatur area.

The Bulling is bad, the teachers seem like they don't care, and the principal's rather point their finger at the victim rather than the bullies.

This school is filled with poorly rounded students who have been led to believe they are better than everyone and that there mommas will fix everything when they mess up. Also the girls dress is totally inappropriate with daisy duke shorts and mini skirts with low cut shirts. I am really ashamed to have to go to this school.( would have picked 0 stars if they let me)

I give my school and above average rating for the many activities it has active robotics. chorus, band, and many sports including track, football, basketball, volleyball, and more. We also have IB Experience which involves Spanish and learning about other places such as Mexico and many more. We have Computer Tech. to learn more about computers and how they work. I am currently in 6th grade getting ready for Football Spring Practice and we are going to whoop Brookhaven as well as in basketball. Our crosstown rival haha. Hope the review helps. This is from a student by the way.

Be careful. If your finances permit you to do so, do not move into this school district. Send your children to private school if you live in the area. The principal and other administrators are the BIGGEST problem. They spent millions of tax dollars on an IB program to disguise their incompetencies--including a lack of discipline, lack of respect for their teachers and support staff, and lack of sanitation in the building.
