Great school. Get involved, they do appreciate parents' involvement. Principal is always available. Teachers are great. PTA is amazing.
I love this school..The education is a excellent..It feels like a private school my kids love it
My son is attending third grade at the Eagle Ridge, It is a great school with a good staff. However, my son is not getting the same attention level other schools offered to him. His tutor, recommended by the Broward County confirmed his high IQ; but his teacher has not been able to take advantage or she looks not motivated to help him succeed. It is a great school; but you have to be involved.
I have a question: We are considering moving to the area of Eagle Ridge Elementary School as we have heard great things about it. But, what middle school would the kids go to when they are done and how is it?
I have had a mixed experience some of the teachers have been great over the years and some are so inappropriate with the kids rushing and being condescending and even yelling. The principal NEVER calls back but delegates to others, the VP is awesome and warm but in meeting you do get the feeling of a run-around. All in all it's a pretty good school I just wish some of the bad teachers would be held accountable for the actions and how they chose to direct themselves to the students.
This is a outstanding school!! Eagle Ridge Elementary ranks in the top ten percent of ALL elementary schools in the state of Florida!!!!
I am sorry to disagree. This is a terrible school. I wish I never enrolled my child in this school. I have nothing good to say about the principal, guidance counselor or any other staff. I have never attempted to work with such cold people in my life. They do not work with the parents and do not care for their opinions. They just do as they please without helping the children.
This is an amazing school. The principal, teachers, parents all work as a team. This family atmosphere makes Eagle Ridge the top notch school that it is. This is no doubt the BEST school in Broward County. It has a well deserved reputation for its excellence.
My children are 7 years apart and I have grown with the school as it has evolved to accommodate K-5. My children have had a wonderful experience. The PTA, administration and teachers are all a cohesive unit that support each other to make this school phenomenal!
My child has been at Eagle Ridge for his whole elementary school experience. We love the school and will be sad to move on. People know each other and the staff get to know the children. Teachers and administration are great. We would totally recommend this school!! Great PTA involvement and support.
Great school. There is a common goal here: to educate each and every student. The principal sets the tone by being a hard worker. She is in the classrooms and is very involved with the children and the teachers. She hires the best teachers and support staff. The front office staff are very friendly. My children love it here. Volunteers are always welcome. PTA is awesome and is always planning fun activities. I can say without reservations that Eagle Ridge is the best school in Broward County.
Just moved here from california. Great school. The principal welcomed us in and took us for a tour. There are so many opportunities for parents to volunteer. PTA is very involved and active. I can't get over my experience in this school since august. Highly recommend eagle ridge as a high achieving and innovative school.
Great school. They really care about their students, and treat parents like true partners. They include students with disabilities in every activity. The principal is everywhere and truly cares about children. The teachers are involved and keep parents informed. Students know what is expected of them. Everyone is happy and busy, too. Can't say it enough: best school in florida!
Great teachers, wonderful after school activities. The principal is always available and really knows the students.
Excellent school-much better than any private school. Small class size, strong focus on reading across the curriculum. Only school where the principal is always available to see you! She's in the classrooms and really knows the children.
Excellent school! Administration sets the tone here. The principal is alert, high achieving, and expects excellence. It shows!
I had two small children at Eagle Ridge for two years and it was a very positive experience. In my two years at Eagle Ridge, my childern were in kindergarten, 1st, 2nd and 3rd. It is a large school but the staff is well trained and experienced with large numbers of students starting with the Principal who is beyond spectacular and going from there. Volunteers are encouraged by the staff and I love the job the 05-06 PTA President did. I will miss Eagle Ridge and wish them nothing but the best!
Nice location and area. Principal lacks in providing her staff with support, and has zero personality in dealing with parent issues.
their first and somtimes only concern at times is Fcat. writing and other subjects do not get much time devoted. The principal is the one behind this and should not be in charge of this or any school.
New to a BIG school - felt lost and unwelcome, tried to get involved with school functions-was basically blown off and ignored. Also feel detentions are handed out way too willingly, not enough student individual attention, when a student is struggling it needs to be identified immediately, and with suggestions for help. I feel we got none of the above. Was severly disappointed in fundraising outcome of products, they were weak at best, it is a great school on paper with statistics and figures, but if I had known what I know now, my child would have attended another school or perhaps even a private school. Our Eagle Ridge experience has been disappointing, which is sad becuase when we moved to Florida we could not wait for our child to begin at Eagle Ridge. The positive note is, the Principal is very accessible and the school is clean. Loved the extra curricular activities.
