I have to agree with many of the other posts here. We built a home in Wolf Ranch so our children could attend a brand new D20 school. The home and neighborhood are amazing....the school has been a disappointment. We did choice out this year. Therefore I need to pay for after school care vs my children taking the bus home like they had from Ranch Creek. The problem at this school is low moral and the principal is at the root of it.
My child was new to this school this year. I read the reviews after we were enrolled in the neighborhood school. I wish I had read them first. Dealing with the principal has been exhausting. One of the teachers my child has does not have control over her class and the children have no structure in the class. They are reluctant
My child attended Ranch Creek for two partial school years. We chose to choice out after visiting other schools. We found the academics more challenging, better school to home communication and a better overall atmosphere of consistency & cooperation between teachers and grade levels at all of the other schools we considered. My child also went an entire quarter without any science instruction - no grade was given for the 2nd quarter as it wasn't taught at all. This was a problem last school year as well. The principal and assistant principal are very nice; however, for whatever reason their leadership styles have not resulted in a team that addresses the basics of what a good school needs - happy and cooperative teachers, informed and engaged parents and thorough instruction for each student.
School has a ton of potential, but much needs to happen in order to realize it. The morale of the far too many teachers is terrible, although the preschool teachers are quite good. The students spend far too much time preparing for standardized tests and not nearly enough time actually learning. Bringing issues forward about issues with bullies or teachers seem to matter little. Choiced out for the upcoming year. Wish we had not waited so long to make the change.
This school lacks on true learning skills and they are very eager to point out a problem with your child without any solution. I choiced out my children and I'm very happy with their new school AIE.
we decided to choice out of RCES. We choiced out for 3 major reasons 1. Horrible principal and vice principal 2. teachers unhappy and consistently complain they are overworked and it was detrimental to learning 3. unsafe due to bullying and physical threats
Very dissatisfied. Students are not challenged at all. Unhappy on all levels with this school.
Great principal - incredible library - motivated teachers and wonderful students. What else could you ask for? We've sent our kids to many schools and this is the best.
This school for being just 2 years old is awful. Bad administration. Teachers that are too happy to let you know they are overwhelmed. Horrible pickup set up at end of day. Nothing good to say about this campus. If you must buy a home in Wolf Ranch and have school age children choice out of this school
