This is a great school with a lot of good staff. The principal is very understanding and really takes time to get to know the families and help kids that need a little extra attention.

My kids have only had the best teachers here. The new principal is great. The only complaint that I have is if your child is advanced in one subject, there isn't really an opportunity for him/her to advance at his/her own pace (unless they are in gate). There is a lot of parent involvement at the school and the PTA tries really hard to do cool things.

Coyote Ridge Elementary has a loving, caring staff that are very approachable and protective of their students. The staff ...Office, Teacher's, Principal, and Supervisor's seem to be taught the same techniques, as I have been in K -5th grades all the teachers use a positive, cute and effective way off communication with the children. I love it! I have been to several schools and so have my children, they were not as good as Coyote Ridge. Coyote Ridge uses a Loving, Positive and Logical way to teach children. I feel blessed to have my Grand children at Coyote Ridge.

My daughter loved kindergarten. She had one of the best teachers in Mrs Moore. The staff is very helpful and friendly.

This school is big, but has great teachers and staff who care about the students. There are a handful of parents who are involved and make many special events happen for the kids.

My daughter has been in the school for two years and so far her teachers have been great. The principal is also approachable and so is the office staff.

While the school is above average for the state, it's below average for West Roseville. My son attended this school for fifth grade and the teacher he had was awful. She communicated terribly, to both parents and students. She was unhelpful in regards to homework, test questions, or anything else we had questions about. She was, as others have observed, aloof and uncaring. That aside, the quality of students (and parents) pales in comparison to Quail Glenn. It's evident that this school serves the nearby large low-income apartment complex. One of the big pluses, okay the only plus, is that the parent involvement with the school is high. There are class parents, parents assisting with field trips, parents leading "walk to school" days, etc.

I was transferred here in fifth grade and let me tell you, it was the worst school year of my life. I was so glad to finally get out. Almost all the kids were rude and self-centered, its hard to find real friends. It's hard to fit in when everyone is going around thinking they are the best. As for the school itself, it seemed that they only cared about their image and not the students. Most teachers, supervisors, and the principal were kind of faking their way through the year and not caring to really connect with the students. Also, their rules are really strict, esp. At recess. I remember that I bought this X-large pencil at the bookfair during lunch, and as I was racing to catch up with the lunch line, a supervisor yelled NO RUNNING WITH A PENCIL. Even though there was no one nearby as I ran, and it was doubtful I would hurt myself. This school wants good, obedient students that will become another brick in the wall of society. Rarely allows creativity, or freedom. The only part I really enjoyed was the art projects, which was done by volunteered parents and not the school itself. Then again, perhaps it was just my bad timing of transferring to the school...

Overall, I am disappointed with Coyote Ridge. Most of the teachers here are good. BUT, there is one second grade teacher who is very cold, tends to humiliate students, and is unapproachable. The community of parents is GREAT. However, the school chooses AWFUL standardized curriculum, refuses to deviate from it, does not re-teach subjects that entire classes are not getting, and concentrates on STAR testing far too much. Teaching to the test does NOT HELP STUDENTS. The kindergarten teachers are all fantastic, but there needs to be something done about the curriculum, reading programs, and really most academics-related things about this school. I must point out though, the teacher's hands are bound, perhaps the curriculum change needs to happen at the district level. The office staff at Coyote Ridge are snooty, rude and make you feel like you are bothering them with anything.

Coyote Ridge is a large school and when you have so many students it is harder to provide field trips, incentives etc. due to the large cost involved. Most of the teachers are great. The PTA does alot for the school but it always seems like the same twelve people are doing all the work. Many parents say they will help out and want more for their kids but when asked to participate they always have an excuse. Schools with half as many students are able to raise three to four times as much money as our school through box tops but Coyote Ridges parents seem to busy to even cut out a box top. If all 850 students were to bring in 10 box tops a month (which is not hard) the school would raise almost $7,000. Step up parents. Stop complaining and start helping out.

My wife and I are very pleased with the school administration and teachers. Our daughter is extremely happy at Coyote Ridge. She has learned a lot from her teachers for the past four years. Yes, she does have fun at school. There are also great after school activities! Thank you, teachers for working so hard and for caring.

The school only cares about test scores and how they look on paper. No communication and the kids just cant have fun. Isn't it funny that during test weeks they give your kids snacks.Which they say helps a child learn more. My daughter is very far behind and i get no help from the school.

I am always happy with the office staff. However, some of the staff (teachers) are extremely unapproachable. While academics are important I think too much emphasis on curriculum has really robbed the students of a fun elementary experience.

I too feel the staff is cold and aloof. You are made to feel as though you are intruding. I get minimal information from teachers and am always the one initiating feedback. I'd like to see less meaningless flyers come home and receive more personalized feedback on my child's progress without always having to go ask for it.

The administration is very cold and discipline is much too strict. There is no question that at Coyote Ridge, academics are priority #1, however there's more to the well-rounded growth of the students than just academics. What about play and fun? It's part of being a kid. They're neglecting a key ingredient to true well-rounded growth, the freedom to run and play.

This school has been a big disappointment. It is probably fine for most kids, but my fifth grader has not enjoyed his 5 years at Coyote Ridge, a small fish in a very large pond. Being a new school, they have obviously had issue with rules and figuring out what works and what does not. It has therefore given none of the advantages of a huge new school, with all of the disadvantages. I can not recommend it only in contrast to the other public schools that I am familiar with. I really expected much more from this school located in such a great district.

We love this school. Our girls have been to other schools and have done well but this school pushes their learning to a more advanced level. Coyote Ridge really tries to involve parents in the classroom and does a good job communicating to parents about homework and happenings around school. We are very impressed!

I am very impressed with Coyote Ridge. I have a friend who has a son two years older than mine who goes to the San Juan School District in Citrus Heights. His son is bringing home homework similar to my son. And he is very excited to do it! I couldn't be more happy with his school!

Excellent school. The teachers and Principal are very good. Our son attended Kindergarten and is now almost done with first grade. He likes the school, his teachers, and his classmates. Students are challenged with work at their respective levels. For example, in his first grade class, there is a grade level reading group and an advanced level reading group.

I have two boys at Coyote Ridge this year. The School needs more music and art programs. PTA should continue to raise funds for new school programs. Thanks for adding the Friday after school sports club, Jr. golf and harmonica music programs - keep it up Coyote Ridge!

Our experience has been terrific! Our Daughter has attended Coyote Ridge for 3 years and she is doing great. The teachers and principals are very caring and knowledgeable and make learning fun. Parents are on campus daily to give a helping hand. I will be very sorry to move out of this school district.

Strong academic program in math and reading. No music program, very little extracurricular activities. Poor physical education program .Art program is provided by parents only. Students are crossing guards in morning and after school for safety. Great Teachers!
