I am the grand parent of a Ridgemoor student. My husband and I are both educators. We have been overjoyed with the excellence in teaching at Ridgemoor. Our grand daughter's KDG teacher, Mrs Sanchez was beyond compare and we are forever grateful for her caring and teaching.
I attended Ridgemoore Elementary and my time there was most memorable. I started in third grade where I met my new teacher Mrs. Baker. I look back now and only have good memories of all the things that I was taught by her and a few more teachers. Their techniques were unmatched with the many other schools I attended as a child and if I could send my child anywhere for schooling it would definitely be here!!! I still remember songs that Mrs Baker utilized to help educate us about the Navajo people and math. This school is unforgettable.
I am extremely happy with Ridgemoor Elementary. Mrs. Cook is a GREAT KINDERGARTEN teacher!!! The school is also very involved with the parents of each kid. I was able to see 1st hand how things were run. My children & I are a family coming out of a recent divorce w/ my husband. My son before starting school showed signs of stress & anger, he would bully other children at times. Now with the help of Mrs. Cook, we have helped correct that issue, & my son's behavior and overall attitude has improved entirely. He is no longer an anger, unhappy little boy hiding off in the corner. Now he actually wants to help his teacher, and behave. And he's proud of himself when he receives an award for good behavior.
While my grandchildren went to school here they received a wonderful education. The teachers were excellent and cared about them.
Ridgemoor is a loving environment with awesome teachers and staff. they really care about our kids.
This school has the most amazing teachers, principal, and staff. My 3 kids have excelled here in the learning environment created by the staff, parents and the students. I am proud and fortunate that we are Roadrunners and it is a California Distinguished School.
Ridgemoor is an awesome school with great teachers that go above and beyond the call of duty for the children they serve. We gather as a family each morning to do the pledge to the flag, a different class each week sings for everyone, and announcements are made before everyone heads off to their own classrooms. We don't have much of a turn over of staff which also helps with consistency for the students and parents. As our school song says, 'Ridgemoor is the place to be.'
There just something very special about that school. My grand kids go there and they very smart.
Our school is the best, because of all the Teacher's, Office Staff Members, and our Principal make everyone feel like family..Plus the teaching is A++++....I love them all...
This is my 10th and, sadly, my last year at Ridgemoor since my youngest child, a 5th grader, will move on next fall. Our teachers really do go the extra mile, and have succeeded in helping all three of my children earn straight As every trimester! I estimate that I have attended about four dozen awards ceremonies for Perfect Attendance, Terrific Kid, Student of the Month, and/or Honor Roll. In addition to these recognitions, my kids alone have participated in district sponsored events like Red Ribbon Week, spelling bees, and science fairs; PTA sponsored events like dances, the Harvest Fair, movies on the blacktop, and stargazing; GATE classes like Chess Club and Mad Science; field trips to the J. Paul Getty Museum, the Ramona Pageant, Riley s Farm, Mission San Luis Rey, the Oval Office, and an incredible sim ride called Soarin Over California at the California Adventure Park; health and fitness activities like Running Club and Jazzercise; exploration of the Arts in band, choir, Guitar Club, Spotlight Kid s Theater, and Reflections, not to mention the musicals Vacation on Mars, Westward Movement, Geology Rocks, and Pirates of Grammar Island; as well as special days devised by the teachers like Cat in the Hat Day, Johnny Appleseed Day, Western Days, Polar Express, Chinese New Year, Donuts With Dad, homemade boat launch, U.S. state breakfast, and the ever popular Medieval Faire! For years I ve sent these ideas to my relatives who teach back east! The support my son received in 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades following two major hip surgeries went above and beyond the call! Ridgemoor teachers and staff: you are extraordinary and awesome!
I have been a part of Ridgemoor for 8 years. We have a principal who cares!!! Teachers do so much to help our kids, they always go the extra mile. Ridgemoor is a great school!!!
My family and I love Ridgemoor school because of the awesome principal Mrs. James and the teachers that my daughters have had. The PTA activities are great, too. Plus, the school has been a distinguished school for the last couple of years now which proves right there that this school is the best.

We really love this school! We have had such wonderful experiences so far. My oldest son loves it there, and my youngest is already talking about going to Kindergarten there. The TEACHERS are what make this school the best! Great communication and sincere care for the children!
Great teachers! New city with teachers that care about the students. Dana and I see the growth in Devin due to the extra mile his teachers have gone. I would like to call out the administrative staff as well, great communication!
