Gold Ridge Elementary School1

BEWARE! Principal is a politician. I agree with previous posters that he is nice. But his assets end there. Watch out for that certain 2nd grade teacher. She destroyed my child's will to learn. You won't find a friendlier office staff anywhere and the parents at this school are wonderful. I noticed several previous negative posts have been erased and only the positive remain......
Gold Ridge Elementary school is a wonderful place for kids to learn basic education and new concepts. The environment in the school is amazing. To me following are the key things that make a school successful in building feature leaders and innovators. To me, Gold Ridge is on top in executing these key steps. 1. Experienced teachers to teach required subjects and provide knowledge 2. Good facility to support a school system 3. Using advanced technologies for teaching 4. Grooming students to meet challenging and advanced programs 5. Communication with parents periodically about students and school updates such as common core programs, Academic events, Science fair, Sports events etc 6. Safe and healthy environment Both my kids did their schooling here and we are very satisfied with everything they offer. I strongly feel now the time has come for the schools in California to advance their teaching methods, teaching media and gear towards Common Core. Also teachers need training to adopt to common core style quickly so that student can continue to get the best education from Gold Ridge always!!!
Excellent school. I have 2 kids in K and 1st grades, and both their teachers are exceptional. The new principal is excellent as well, caring, he seems to be on top of everything going around at school. Unfortunately, this is not our home school, I wish our kids could stay there the entire elementary education.
Last yr. we had Mrs. Saxen for first grade. She really went the extra mile with the kids teaching them reading to include coming in early every day to kick start a group of children that were having a slow start. Its teachers like her that motivate our children that really impress me!
This is such a wonderful school! Our two daughters have thrived here. Everyone--the principal, teachers, custodians, office staff, etc. is dedicated to our students. I can't say enough great things about Gold Ridge! (And they do have tables for the kids to eat lunch at. How strange someone wrote that!) The streets are only crowded at drop-off/pick-up time. It's not difficult to park your car and walk your child to school.
