Please excuse my previous review i was rushing n texting! Im the mother of 8. I was a military wife. My kids have been to third world countries and have always been able to adjust to their new schools, homes , travel and teachers. but like i said my two daughters both despise this school. And you have kids doing same sex marriages at school . Teachers yelling at parents and students like i said before Horrible School and we pay alot to live in this district ! So if people are moving out here to the davie area because school id do a bit more research ! cant understand how its so expensive n yet we get a crap school.

I have finally graduated this school and I am so glad to be out. The food is disgusting as usual, there's always fights going on and the school gossips about everything. Teachers show favoritism, teachers give way too many tests and projects are pointless because most teachers just glance at it and give it an A. I was in advanced and I was pretty much at the same level as normal classes. I liked that all the cliques stuck together, if there were fights they were fights in the same clique. This school is eh, it's not great but it's not horrible. This school needs more supplies, my teachers begged us to bring in paper, pens, markers, etc. If your kid goes here, be prepared for lots of complaining from them.

This school is Horrible. How people are rating well is beyond me. This school treats your child as a prisoner. Your kid will grow up to be a criminal if they attend this school. Then Principal whonruns this school bullies young children and so does his fellow employees. My child was recently traumatized bybthis school and if I were a parent I would not take your child to this school at all.

Don't send your child to this school. Its not what you think. This school is hateful towards children and they make them clean tables in the cafteria without gloves so that the custodian and cafeteria workers don't have to. Its terrible what your child could be cleaning after 1800 students without gloves. So many diseases they can catch. PARENTS please be aware at school what they make your child do. They don't care because they get free labor out of your children.

This school was pretty good. I just graduated from the school this year ,and I have to tell you this school has a lot to offer. They have excellent extracurricular actives and great core classes. For the most part the teachers were great ,but there are always those few teacher that aren't so great. I wouldn't recommend students who are lazy or can't take challenges to go this school. The teachers demand a lot out of their student and the workload can be a lot,but the outcomes are outstanding. Over all this school is just amazing ,but has a few flaws but what school doesn't?

This is the BEST school. I graduated from it in 2012! This place made me actually LOVE school! I am not a nerd, it's just that the teachers were sort if laid back, and taught, yet they let us chill or do what we wanted as long as we payed attention. Except for the uniforms, it was amazing. The drama class is the best, the teacher let us have basically recess in that class, and we can do skits based on whatever we wanted. The Home Ec, teacher was the best too, there was a full sized kitchen. I took those classes. The students there are the best, I was sort of popular there, like I had many friends and I wish I could come back. I've made some friends for life there. It can turn a socially awkward kid that I used to be, into having lots of friends and enjoying the 3 years if middle school. The education is okay for me. I have so many good memories at that school.

My son is just about to finish his first year at IRMS (2013-2013). I have read the Great Schools Reviews and after my experiance at IRMS which includes listening to my son, following his grades, corresponding with his teachers, enteracting with office staff, participating as a chaperone and volunteering as an FCAT proctor ... I have nothing but great things to say about the entire school and all of the Staff. I would highly recommend Indian Ridge Middle School and would tell the school to keep up the great work.

This school is terrible in so many ways! My daughter was beat up by a boy 2 yrs ago and he never even so much as received a detention for it! Now she is threatened by a group of girls. The same principal as with the previous event is still in charge of her grade & I know he will do nothing until she gets beat up again if at all, or worse she'll be suspended with them! All this and she has had teachers that sit on their ipads with out-of-control classrooms. They surf the web & shop at victoria secret during class! Her language arts teacher is frustrated that many in her class learned nothing from the teacher last year. This year her science teacher is the same waste of time. Who do you tell? They all have tenure so no one cares! If it weren't for parents and a few great teachers the students would be lost. I've had my daughter tutored throughout middle school.

This school has an excellent gifted program. Students' core classes are taught by gifted certified teachers that teach critical thinking skills on a very high level. One of our sons transferred from a reputable local private school to Indian Ridge in seventh grade and his latter experience at IR exceeded his private school experience both academically and socially. Now our younger son is in the IR gifted program and he is also having an wonderful, enriching experience. The teachers treat the students respectfully, and intelligently; preparing them for AP/honors high school classes. I also want to add that IR has an exceptional GEM program. ("Great Explorations in Math.") Again, there is no need to send your child to private school if your child is bright and you are zoned for IR. Take the $60,000 you would have spent and invest it in the college fund.

HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE! I just got off the phone with Indian Ridge Middle School (Davie- Florida)...beyond horrible experience like always. The staff is always rude and not helpful. They seem very aggravated by any phone call or question that a parent or student may have. I do not recommend this school to anyone. I don't really understand why they think they are such a good school. They are NOT!

I'm a 6th grader. I love this school so much! This school has a rating of nine out of ten because most of the students in this school pass the FCAT. What the previous review said is totally false. I mean how could the teachers be careless if at the end most students pass?Right now, I'm almost a seventh grader. My FCAT scores are: a high five for math(I got only one wrong) and a three for reading. If you want me to be honest, I SUCK at reading. But even with that I didn't fail. I love all of my teachers. They are awesome. They do everything they can, the only thing that your child needs to be is not lazy. I mean I came to this school with barely knowing any English, and guess what? My final report card is all straight As with a perfect GPA of 4.0 . A student might be smart, but if he or she is lazy, the student has no chance. So if I, a girl that came from Israel just almost two years ago, ended the year with straight As, perfect GPA, a "honoring certificate" in math, and got accepted to all honor clubs, your child can do it for sure. About friends, it all depends on the person. Let's just say that me and one girl started out with arch enemies, now we are best friends.

I really don't understand why this school has a 9 rating. I agree with the previous review. Most of the teachers ARE horrible and uncaring. I currently have two students there. One is graduating and fortunately we are moving, so the other will be transferring to another school. Also, my kids are smart kids otherwise their grades would be horrible due to lack of proper education. I can only say good things about maybe a couple the teachers. The students are a different issue. It has been really difficult for my kids to find good friends in the school. There are rising drug and promiscuity problems I really wish they would address.

I went to this school for just one year and it was 8th grade and I think this school is really good I loved how every teacher trully pushed every student to their limit and always were making us give our best. Honestly I would recomend this school to anyone and about the FCAT, every school in the state of florida focuses too much on the FCAT and thats not the schools fault but the states and the government fault. I think that there are clicks like in every other school and kids are not nasty unless you let them be nasty to you. Maybe if somebody doesnt stand up to them thats why kids arent friendly.

I'm currently a stedent in IRMS, and I believe that it is one of the best schools I have ever been to. Sixth grade was a bit rough and there was some rude and nasty teachers then. My team had this one teacher who was disorganized and did not teach us what we were supposed to learn, but that situation was taken care of when I went into the seventh grade. Everything was quite pleasant, and I had great teachers who always helped you out so you could pass with flying colors. I'm now going into the eigth grade and I cannot wait to start learning again.

My wife and I love this Indian Ridge. My son is currently attending and he enjoys going to classes I know my son is receiving an excellent education. The Principal, teachers, staff and volunteers are some of the most caring and attentive people I have ever met. I highly recommend this school to new parents in the area.

this school is a very good school. When I started Indain Ridge I hated it. This school is very safe, but sometimes there are physical fights. There are a couple negatives. The school always complains about the money. Also, the school is very strict. Some of the teachers need to lay off the work. Also, I didn't like 6th grade. It's stupid because everyone hate's 6th graders. If a eight grader or seventh grader passes a sixth grader they would make fun of them. It's really retarded. Also, the uniforms. It gets really annoying. If you get in trouble you get IBM. IBM is like hell. Overall, it's ok school.

I am currently in Indian Ridge in 8th grade. I like my teachers except the class arrangments. If you ask to change one class, they go crazy. I love drama, that is one of there amazing programs. technology is also a very good put together class. The one thing this school can work on is asking for money. They ask at least 50 dollars per year for various fundraisers and such. There end of the year dances are a ball i heard. The teachers really care and put effort into there work. I like the school. I reccomend it to everyone!

One of my children has been through and my younger one just started Indian Ridge. One was in advanced placement and the other is an ESE student requiring some assistance. I can't express enough how impressed I am with that school. Very clean, very secure, and well run. The teachers and staff have always gone out of their way to assist me and my children. Great school.

then school is very good at integrating technology into the curriculum. they are also very aggressive in keeping kids in advanced placement tracks on task and so a good job at identifying those students who are under achieving. The sports activities and other extra-curricular programs are not as agresively pushed as the academic programs are. There is a high amount of parental involvement in the classroom, and teachers are not bashful about calling for a conference if they see a need.

My son is now entering the 8th grade at Indian Ridge. He was full of anxiety about going to middle school. Within 1 short week he felt welcomed, safe and comfortable. Kudos to the staff. In elementary school he was always a 'good' student. However, since entering Indian Ridge, he has excelled and is now a fantastic student. He has learned so much and has sincerely liked if not loved all of his teachers. Whoever is doing the hiring of teachers there is doing a great job! The school is a clean, safe, encouraging environment. It has been a blessing to us, to have our son at Indian Ridge.

I am not a parent, but I am a previous student from Indian Ridge Middle School. I have been out of school for quite sometime and I do know that the school system is most definitly excellent. The teachers take part of your life and show great leadership for our future educators. If you are looking for a great school to send your children, Indian Ridge Middle is 'A' rated.
