Supports LD students: Neutral


- a parent
Since my kids are still ECE age we have not seen a huge difference in learning yet to confirm this rating.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a parent
The teachers really get to know each kiddo and help them bring out their best while working on things they need help developing further.

Ricks has been a great place for our now PreK kiddo and our PreSchooler just starting this year. The teachers are really amazing and the entire staff is focused on helping each and every kiddo to reach their potential. Our son has learned so much already in 2 years at school and loves learning. The current administration (new this year) is really doing a great job.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a parent
I have never, ever seen such a dedicated team of teachers. We are so grateful to each and every one of them!

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree

We love our teachers. The teachers know the children so well and know just how to challenge different learning styles etc.

Amount of homework: Agree


- a community member
This year my daughter moved into middle school and the homework has increased to prepare the students for high school. The students manage homework and communicate about it with teachers via an app and parents have access to the app for monitoring purposes.

Develops character: Strongly agree

The students are treated like people worthy of respect and they in turn are encouraged to treat fellow students and adults with respect. The unique structure of the school allows for character building compassion projects, cross-classroom "buddy" programs, leadership teams and a vibrant student council for middle school students. The older kids are so kind to the little ones - it is not uncommon to hear a 7th grade boy compliment a 1st grade student on their artwork, monkey-bar skills or general attitude. We feel so lucky to be here!

Our children cannot wait to go to school each day. They are excited, engaged and challenged. They are instilled with a sense of self confidence and the ability to embrace new challenges! The teachers are incredible, classroom ratios are excellent and the administration is amazing!



- a student
Everything the teachers do at his school is focused 150% on individual child development. Children truly thrive.
