Both of my children have attended Ridgecrest... I have been through two principles, Mr. Hamilton and now Mrs. Emmanuel, both are great principles and the teachers at this school are great. I love Ridgecrest and I hope the parent volenteer stay as involved as they have been in the past.
I have been extremely happy with this school for my children this year. The teachers are wonderful, breaking the kids up into appropriate learning groups and using a 'team teaching' technique to give each child lessons at their own personal learning level. Even at the kindergarten level, the children are encouraged to read and learn at their highest personal level. The parents help out a lot as well, which helps trememdously. I would choose this school over any other.
This is a wonderful school that has lots of parent involvement. The principal, faculty, and teachers are very supportive of the parents involvement and encourage accademic success especially its reading program. 4th graders can begin the guitar club provided by Mr. Brooks on a volunteer basis. This school is an overall success with a diversified student body.
