Please read my previous review which I just sent to you. At the time I attended Fruitridge, it was a satisfactory school. Judging from the present rating, it seems to have improved considerably. Irene (Brown) Thomas
we just moved to this neighborhood a couple of months ago, and my daughter will be in 4th grade this year 2012-2013 i was told that fruitridge elem is the school for her according to our address, im just hoping that my child will excel there and enjoy learning. thank you. Ms. Bussey.
I went to this school, from 1983 (when they had preschool there, which I don't think they do now), until 1991. I think it was a wonderful school. Yes, it is in a "disadvantaged" area, as others have pointed out, but the teachers there make sure their students have the advantage of a good education. Truly dedicated faculty and staff (with very few exceptions).
They use the Open Court Program. They are working very hard to improve their scores, but are still a program improvement school. No available extra curricular activities or sports on site. Low level of parent involvement.
