My daughter attended preschool here and it give her a great start. She loved all the teachers and they all knew her. She was excited to go to school everyday and just could not stop talking about her day when we picked her up. she loved Mrs. Junaita and Mrs. Kathy. I am thankful that we had the oppertunity to send her here.
Sounds like someone had a bad experience, It won't discourage me because I don't listen to bashing, there is alot of loving, teachers that are working there that make a difference in young lives everyday through the love of Jesus Christ. They don't just teach but they give structure to the children in learning their good character, manners, and social skills with all the teachings of Jesus Christ our lord.
My honest opinion- The school is for individuals who have no other options. The teachers were "ok." A majority of the teachers are relavtives to the pastors (without degrees in education). The only teacher with years of experience in the background in education, quit after one year of teaching there. There is a lack of structure at the school.There are constant behavior issues with the children. I believe some of them may have had issues at previous schools and opted to attend Ridge. The things the kids were able to get away with, perhaps at any other school they would have been suspended if not expelled. There was no entrance test or interviews in order to join the school. If you have the money, you are in. The tuition cost is not worth the level of education there. I feel this is an overpriced school that needs to refocus on education and less on a financial gain. You may be better off sending your child to a public school even if it does have a "C" average on the FCAT.
My daughter attended pre school. I do believe they have great communication. The only problem I had was when I would pick up my daughter, they were on the play ground, so i would sit and monitor, where I witnessed kids fighting in the corner and teachers were to busy talking to each other to see what was going on. Also I believe the teachers should dress more appropriate for a Christian school. My daughter was never taught anything out of the Bible in pre-K. Mrs. Juanita was not her teacher, but she is awesome, she always helped us with all questions we had.
IM IN LOVE WITH THIS SCHOOL!!! Teachers care about your child not just another body....thank you JESUS
Great school,great teachers.My daughter has attended this school for a year,she likes her teacher and friends,especially Miss Juanita.
My son attended the infant room and is now in the one year old room. I absolutely love it there. the teachers are great, the school is new, no words to describe how happy Iam with that school.
My daughter has attended this school for 4 years. The staff has remained consistent for the last two, except for one assistant who graduated at the end of last year. Most of the teachers have been there since my daughter started. They are all very communicative about the students progress, with daily reports on what they did that day. Her current teacher gave us his email address at the beginning of the year so we can ask him questions anytime. The students have Computer, Drama, Music and Spanish classes weekly along with Math, Science, History, and Bible. The classes are small which allows the teachers time to work with the students individually as needed. I don't regret the decision to keep her at this school. I only wish they had sports programs, but they are working on adding them soon.
Excellent school. Teachers care. My son was very excited by the worship on Wednesdays. His SAT scores were better than previous years. Previously, I thought the academics were too easy but perhaps focusing on the basics are the best way to prepare for SATS.
The staff is caring and warmth. My preschoolers are learning fast and enjoy their school.
