South Ridge is an AMAZING school! The staff is friendly, the teachers are caring and really want to see their students succeed. This is a great atmosphere for kids and would be a great school to send your kids to grow up in. Wow!
Mrs.Carlson has been a great addition to South Ridge Elementary School. She has brought a positive, encouraging and caring attitude to the School. She is focused on each student growing and being challenged both academically and in their character. Mrs. Carlson truly cares about the best well being of each student and staff member.
The teachers put in extra hours to ensure that the students are growing at their own individual level. There is a strong gifted and talented program for those students who need more challenge. There is also and intervention program for students needing extra help in reading or math.
I see the teachers and Principal encourage the students to do their best and not to give up. I see the teachers and Principal truly believing in the students and helping the students believe in themselves.
The Principal shows great respect for all the students as she listens to each student and takes an interest in their lives: not only on an educational but a personal note. She truly takes the time to display sincere care for each student that she comes in contact with on a daily basis.
South Ridge Elementary School is an awesome school. Not only is the learning growth of the students a high priority but the staff and teachers also teach on the importance of caring for one another. South Ridge Elementary has a community and caring family atmosphere. Everyone that enters the building is greeted with a smile and warm welcome. I would highly recommend your student to attend South Ridge Elementary School because they will be taught with intelligent and caring teachers and staff.
There are a lot of things I could say about my children's experiences here. The discipline at the school is non-existent. I felt like my kids were at an inner city school here. There are a lot of poor vs rich kid problems here and a big problem with bullying here. Both my kids were treated poorly by their classmates. The kids who created the trouble were not given any real consequences for their actions. The teacher who taught my child is not coming back. That tells you something. They would make the whole class receive the consequences of the few who created the problems because they were to "be a team." Ridiculous. Hope the new principal takes action to make the bad kids responsible for their actions and gets serious about the bullying issue.
