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.

I graduated from MRHS and wanted to share my experience. I was a year round varsity athlete (Basketball/Track) and A+ student. I had an amazing 4 years there and loved all the diversity of classes. I especially liked that they had dual-enrollment options, i had 80% of my freshman year of college compete before graduating MRHS. Classes were challenging. Teachers are awesome and supportive! With many students, you're bound to make friends somewhere! Like anything else, you do need to apply yourself to be successful... Thanks to a solid foundation from MRHS, I now have a Bachelors of Physiology /Chemistry from the University of Arizona.

Mountain Ridge school provides students with a 21st century education! Students get the opportunity to track their own data and take ownership of their learning through goal setting and focusing on research based strategies. The teachers and administration are wonderful and very supportive of student needs. There are more than 40 clubs that students can participate in and a ton of school spirit! Your child will definitely graduate feeling prepared for college or a career, whichever path they may choose!!

My Daughter has had an excellent education here with teachers who are really involved and want their students to do well. My student worked hard and had a great relationship with the math and chemistry departments. She had a great experience with athletics and clubs. The resources here are very good. She has a full ride to ASU in Chemical Engineering and I give credit to her and to the exceptional teachers at Ridge. It is all there if you reach for it. If you think someone owes you something you won't succeed anywhere.

Two of the greatest aspects of Mountain Ridge High Schools are its committment to excellence and the wide variety of clubs and activities available to students. Each year, the school holds a club rush event so that students can learn about all the clubs on campus. Some groups are academic, some involve community service while others are related to sports. The overall campus feel is safe and inviting. Additionally, both the rigor and content of the honors and AP classes are wonderful. Students are fully prepared for success in college and beyond. Having worked in two other schools prior to coming to Mountain Ridge, I can honestly say that MRHS is a truly outstanding school.

My son transferred from the Peoria district where he failed almost all of his first semester classes his junior year. His mother and I were resigned to the fact that he would not graduate. As a senior at Mountain Ridge, my son developed the discipline to achieve his academic goals. The administration and counseling office went out of their way to help him be successful and as such he graduated in the spring of 2011. He has since become a U.S. Marine and this probably would not have occurred if he had not gone to Mountain Ridge High School. Our family owes a debt of gratitude to Mountain Ridge s staff and administration for working with us and him.

This school is too big... if your student is an A and loves to be involved in extra circular activities, they will like it if they like crowds. If you student is average and struggles, they will not do well. With only 50 min classes, it takes 10-15 min to settle the students down, then the teacher only has time to give out assignments, no time for real lessons or walking thru and helping a student understand. The teachers and staff may have cared but without resources and so many students, the kids that can't stay before/after school to get the help drowned.

I think that Coach Jack MacDonald is an excellent summer league baseball coach. I hope that he is maintained as a solid staff member of the sports program. Our grandson is on the summer instructional league and is learning so much. He learns how to develop into a fine and respected young man as well as a great ballplayer. Thank you Coach Mac, and thank you Mountain Ridge for staffing such a fine man

MRHS is outstanding! Our children have the advantage of selecting from a variety of great academic programs as well as extra-curricular activities. Their teachers are passionate about their subjects & caring of their students. Of course, we as parents are very involved & have found the staff & administration to be helpful & competent. Positive direction from the top provides great direction for students & staff. This is truly an excellent school.

I worked for this school and now work for Peoria. I can say MRHS does not challenge students but rather babies them along. AP and Honors classes are the level of regular academic classes at most other schools. The accounting/business classes are a complete joke. In fact the entire CTE department needs an overhaul. Admininstration has lost touch with reality. Its time to clean house MRHS.

Mountain Ridge is an amazing school. Our daughter has only had the benefit of two years, and we are so sorry that we didn't move her sooner. We cannot believe the difference in education and opportunities found between the 2 schools less than 5 miles apart. Mrs. Durazo is absolutely amazing, and a HUGE benefit for the school and their arts program. We cannot thank the school enough for what they have done for our daughter. If you live anywhere near Mountain Ridge, and your child is interested in Music, there is NO other choice.

I would strongly recommend Mt. Ridge High School to any parent who is willing to participate in their child's education. Both of our sons graduated from Mt. Ridge and both received multiple scholarship offers from not only ASU and Univ of Arizona, but also scholarship offers from several out of state schools; including the college they both choose to attend, Pepperdine University. The teachers and administrative staff are very dedicated and work hard to provide the best education possible. If you don't want to participate in and support your child's education, and you only want to complain about what you are not getting from a school, then go someplace else.

I would like to offer parents considering Mountain Ridge some advice. Send your child to Mountain Ridge because it is an excellent school, but you should know that your involvement is still crucial in your child's development. While browsing through other posts I saw a lot of parents blaming teachers and administrators for individual failures. Teachers in every subject and at every level offer the help students need, but often students refuse that help. Parents need to encourage their students to seek knowledge and to succeed, not blame the system or the teachers. Mountain Ridge has great teachers, and I would highly encourage parents to send their children to this high school.

Our child is a freshman this year. I read other reviews that only accelerated student get noticed. We wish! I find it very difficult to speak to teachers or administrators. Yes, it is a large school, but these are people you are dealing with. I hope the rest of this year goes better than the first quarter. Some teachers seem to care about and challenge my child in a good way, others do not appear to care at all. The bureaucracy and politics are discouraging.

I have had 2 graduate Ridge and our last is a sophomore. Our oldest did not apply himself to his ability and barely graduated; our second had a wonderful experience & our third is the same. 2500 students will bring its share of problems. Overall, I find the staff to be passionate about their teaching and involved, as long as the kid gives a darn about learning. The counseling office was worthless; the administration acts like the gestapo ~ biggest problem I see at Ridge is parents. I would bet the parents who complain never participated in their child's high school experience except to show up in the office when there is a problem. To only have 100 parents in the PTA in a school this size is pathetic. Parents will always be the greatest influence; if you don't give a darn, why should your kid? Get involved like you should!

Ridge is an absolutly amazing school. In other reviews I read, people are trying to say how they just care about AP kids. From my experience this isn't true. I myself was in honors classes my freshman year, and will be taking them again this year. But I had friends who weren't in honors and they got just as much attention as I did. The teachers are very nice and will do anything they can to help you succeed in their classes. I participated in the musical this past spring and plan to do more with theatre in the next three years. The theatre department is an amazing group of people and they easily accept you as their new friend and cast mate if you are new to the department. For me so far, Ridge has been an amazing experience.

I am a senior who attends Ridge. There are several things I dislike about it but I know it could be worse. The school only supports the athletic and AP students, all others are ignored and disrespected. The only way to get personal attention is to send million's of emails. Then you get a condesending attitude. The lack of different classes is horrible. I actually enjoy learning and I do not feel that the school does not offer enough non-AP classes. I am too busy to take AP classes and my grades do leave something to be desired. The arts departments, besides band, are dissapointingly underfunded.

I graduated in 2007 from MRHS, and I feel the need to defend my alma mater. The main problem here is that students are not as interested in getting an education as they used to be. When I was a teaching assistant in my senior year, I was able to read essays and such that sophomores were writing. Let me tell you, they were horrible. Not only was the grammar aweful, but there was no thought whatsoever behind them. As for the teachers, they work hard to come up with interesting assignments to engage students in the work, but students just aren't interested in anything other than what's happening outside of school. Education doesn't have to be limited to school. Help your children out. Let them know they can come to you with their inquiries and their homework. Rather than make comments from the outide, get involved in your students education.There.is.always.room.for.improvement.so.get.involved.

I am very disappointed in Mountain Ridge. Many of the teachers and administrative personnel consider you just a number unless you're an athlete or exceptional learner. You will get no respect if you're an average or below-average student. Teachers treat you like a second-class citizen if you don't get straight A's. I had a homework assignment in math. Out of 30 problems, I didn't understand two of them so I left them blank. I' earned' a zero on the assignment even though I answered the other 28 questions correctly. I give up...why try???

Okay, so I'm a student at Mountain Ridge high school. I am going to be a sophmore of this year 08-09. First semester of my freshman year I went to Ridge, and I HATED it, so second semester I moved to Centennial. Yes, they are both very great schools, but this year I have realized what great teachers there are at mountain ridge, and how great the security and teaching skills are. And the way the school is run, its just OUTSTANDING. Yes, many students and parents disagree on their teaching skills, and the way things are run, but me, as a student, and only a sophmore, saying how wonderful this school is, should be more than you need to know. Yes, there are always going to be problems with schools and crime, even with schools that aren't public or that are in high ranks that you wouldn't believe.

Mountain Ridge is an amazing school. I have attended four different valley schools and Mountain Ridge has been the best out of all of them, by far. The students are really accepting and don't have the clich d cliques that all the other high schools gave. The teachers are wonderful and are really supportive, especially the AP teachers. This is a great school for AP classes and if they don't offer the class you want, they'll coordinate a way for you to independently study the material. I have really enjoyed my stay at Ridge and I'm excited to go back on the 11th.

The school's rotating schedules are counterproductive and do not resemble real-life college and typical job/work scheduling. For a 'rich' school, it is very stingy with the books and other learning materials. Students are rarely allowed to take the books home. Crime is unusually high at this school. Very few teachers return tests and quizzes and other work so that students can see where they lack and learn through feedback and review. Extra credit work is almost non-existent. This is unfortunate because an extra-credit incentive prompts some students to get engaged in the area of study & provides the potential of greater learning, which is the goal of learning...maybe not the goal of Mountain Ridge.

My son has been at Mountain Ridge for 3 years now, and is going to be a senior this year. He has gotten a fabulous education, and has had many opportunities to excel in any area. He has been able to take college level classes, and has excelled in them, special thanks to Mr. Tutt! What a fantastic math teacher! The only area lacking is in the coaching of the basketball teams. After loving basketball for most of his life, the JV coach found a way to make him sorry he ever tried out for the team there. He has not played since. He was one of the better 'team' players. Not the star of the team, but a great asset.

I believe Mountain Ridge has a wonderful teaching staff who can do so much more than the 'survival' mode that most of them live under. The district and school administration have teachers doing so many things that are just going to get filed away and won't help much. Teacher morale is okay when you tally the people who actually take the survey but if you accounted for all of the teachers it would be lower. As a teacher, it seems like we are battled by the administration, students and parents. Having said all of that, you have to realize that the teachers are passionate about wanting to teach. Otherwise, why would they be there? We aren't just collecting our paychecks and having summer's off. Most teachers spend many hours on their classes and take college courses over the summer. It's not as easy as some perceive it. Teachers need your support!

I am a student at mountain ridge and from the student perspective the school has major issues. I agree that unless you are in a sport, club, or some other activity within the school the teachers and staff could really care less. Mountain ridge also spends so much time trying to fix problems that their own overbearing enforcement and discipline soon becomes an annoyance and influences more students to rebel. They think they know what is going on in their classrooms at all times when the reality is that they HAVE NO IDEA. And to compensate for their ignorance they believe they can stop and interrogate you whenever they feel is necessary.

I love Mt. Ridge! My daughter has attended there for 3 years and will be a senior this fall. She works hard and has taken all of the honors and AP classes that she can. I have two older children who attended another high school and I can tell you that Ridge is higher academically. A large percentage of kids pass their AP courses with 4's or 5's, thereby getting college credit. The teachers are helpful and very caring. They want each student to succeed. The band department is awesome. Any school is what you make of it--if you work hard, you'll succeed. There are so many choices of clubs that any student will find something he's interested in. The campus is clean, and very safe. Class sizes are small. I recommend Ridge very highly--I'm sure you will be pleased as well.

I agree with the previous review. The staff at Mountain Ridge only cater to the students who participate in extra curricular activities; Sports, Cheer or the academic activities. I have had one child graduate, one that is a junior and one that will be a freshman next year. The Child that graduated was a football player and top of his class. He got anything he wanted as well as un solicited extra care when his grades started to show a problem. The child I have there now is a normal teenage boy who likes rock music and is not into sports. Getting a staff member to respond to an email or phone call is like pulling teeth. I have to explain who my child is every time I speak to them. The staff are there to get a paycheck and have summers off, not educate.

The average student or one that has something going on in his life does not stand a chance. The school must realize that there are many other types of students and not just the 'successful' student; many students need assistance, guidance and just someone who cares if they succeed. I have had eight years worth of this school with my children.

I am a parent of 2 Mt. Ridge students. One is a senior, the other a freshman. I find the atmosphere at Ridge to be one of learning and discipline, while still letting the students learn the social aspects of life. Neither of my kids fall into a single category. They associate with different groups and have had no problems at the school. The teachers are helpful and caring. If my child doesn't understand a lesson, they have always been encouraged to talk directly with the teacher to resolve the block and learn. I feel that Mt. Ridge has a very high standard of schooling and am very happy my children are students here.

The academics are standard at best. We came from NY to try AZ and found the schools and the real estate a big disappointment. My daughter was a B student in NY and she was quite challenged. Here in AZ at Mountain Ridge, she is A+ and not challenged, I know my daughter and she didn't blossom overnight. I would be lying to myself if I thought she did. So it doesn't say much for the school. We will probably be moving back to NY and paying the high taxes so that the education is there. I guess that is why the taxes are so low here, there is no $$ going towards education.

Mountain Ridge sports are among some of the best in the state, but as such the competitive sports can be hard to make cuts. They also have many theatre and music programs.

Mountain Ridge has a lot to offer bright students. There are many Advanced Placement classes, and dual enrollment at Glendale Community College. Teachers seem to be caring, and the school has good discipline. The band program is wonderful--175 students with great directors. They have received many, many 'Superiors' over the years. The kids seem happy there, even though some at other schools call Mt. Ridge 'Mt. Rich'. The economic class of most families is middle class to upper middle class. My daughter loves it, her test scores are topnotch, and we are very happy!

I understand that the demographics in this neighborhood is white collar with a background of college, but not everyone is interested in becoming a white collar worker.

I am not a parent but a student who graduated in 2003 and I would like to speak out. Mountain Ridge was an excellent school and I am so happy I had the opportunity to go there. I do not believe anywhere else would have had the quality teachers that I had. I had teachers who gave me their home phone numbers and adresses in case I ever had questions. I have teachers from my freshman year who stopped me in the halls senior year to see how I was doing. I had counselors who helped me apply to every known scholarship, even though I wasnt a graduating senior. I had coaches who not only were there for me in sports but in life. And the administration may seem too strict at times, I felt safe everyday. And it is hard for 5 monitors to keep track of 3,000 kids, and I can tell you I was stopped countless times when walking around the halls. Mountain Ridge is a very high quality school and anyone who has the chance to go there is extremely lucky.
