Coming to the Ranch community after many years working in other districts, I have found a group of dedicated teachers and staff members, willing to go the extra mile to meet the needs of the students. Teachers support each other as well as collaborate with reading and math specialists and coaches, and other special area teachers and administration to provide our student population with a strong foundation in the basic educational skills. The willingness of teachers to both give and accept suggestions and help is an awesome example of how we work to meet each individual child's needs. I have also found teachers and staff have a willingness to share the journey, to help out where needed; its about the TEAM and not about the I. Students, teachers, and staff, we are all in this together, building stronger learners for the years of learning ahead.

Ranch Elementary is a wonderful school! My 2 boys have both attended since kindergarten (now in 5th and 3rd). The teachers are dedicated, supportive and caring. The support staff are friendly, helpful and wonderful with the students. Ranch is a community that helps instill good character traits in all students. All of the staff help students succeed both educationally and personally. Ranch provides a safe and happy environment for our boys to grow as well defined individuals!

It is great to see a school with teachers that work together as a team of teachers. It doesn't matter what grade the teachers teach, they work with each other to provide a well rounded education for all students at Ranch Elementary. My children love their teachers and enjoy going to school. They are provided PE time, Library time, Music time and Technology time. I would like to see more outdoor time for my children in the form of more outdoor lunches and recesses. Other than that, I am happy to send my children to Ranch Elementary where they will learn and grow and become productive individuals in our community.

We love Ranch Elementary School! Both of my children have attended over the last 6 years. I love that the school provides a great education in a warm and family oriented environment. I love that my children go to their neighborhood school and have developed lasting friendships in our neighborhood. Our children have always done well at Ranch and have excelled. Ranch has helped to make my children confident well educated students.

Ranch Elementary is an amazing school! My 2 boys have attended the last 3-4 years and love it! The administration, staff, and teachers are dedicated, supportive and caring. The entire school is a community where the students are challenged and character traits like honesty and respect are taught. They do whatever it takes to help the students succeed. Ranch is a safe and happy place for our children to learn and grow!

This was a good school. but this year I have been very disappointed. My daughter was an A+ student, she is doing poorly because the teacher to student ratio is very high. 30 something students to one teacher and they are 2nd graders. I also believe that children with an IEP should be honored with some type of award, my son is working very hard but has an IEP and is always disappointed at the awards ceremony.

We move our children from Simonton Elementary to this school. We moved bases on what we feel was the safety of our children and educational value. Ranch lived up to our expectations and more. The only really issue we have is children on IEP's are not allowed to be on the honor roll. This has been addressed and we are still waiting for the outcome.

The teachers are all nice and they work with you and your student. They always have a smile on when you show up.

That school is lost and needs a lot of help beginning with telling the truth to parents, caring about the students instead of their paycheck and getting of their lazy duff and being proactive in the district for better education

If you do not have a special needs child this is a good school. My daughter has wonderful teachers that are caring and keep the parents up to date to catch problems before they get out of control. On the other hand I also have a 2 special needs children and the district and the school is not steping up to mke sure my kids are getting an education that helps them instead of hindering them.

This school was brand new when we started our kids here. The teachers were very compasionate and 'kid' oriented. The class sizes are appropriate to the child teacher ratio and we were encouraged to participate in all activities in and out of school. Our son is in kindergarten, enrolled in all day class and his performance is excellent.
