I have nothing but praise for the teachers and staff. They have guided my child who is Autistic and ADDH from a student who was failing and kept back, to being on the same level as her peers and a c+ student. She has grown as person because of Her excellent teachers and the staff. So yes to Common Core and Thank you Arbor Ridge!

this is the worst ever school. Staff are discriminatory and racists. Teachers are academically failures. Bad school management. This school is not trustworthy and they hinder the kids.

The school as a whole is only concerned with FCAT scores. The teachers have not been properly trained on how to teach the new common core and it has made a bad situation worse. The teachers stress out the kids with countdown days till FCAT months out. If your child falls behind they don't help they would rather hold them back or try to convince you there is a learning disability so their test scores won't count. The administrative dean shouldn't be in her position or in my opinion any position where she can influence the self esteem of children. I was told the second week into the school year that my son wasn't meant for school. But not to worry "because the world will always need a plumber or an AC guy" My son was in prep school from age 2. Reading at age 3 and never had anything but glowing reports until he came to this school. In 2nd grade he tested on a 6th grade level, now being here is falling behind and below level. He hates school now and stresses over it daily. Needless to say I am not happy with this school and I would recommend looking into different alternatives as I am.

For a magnet school they have very little to offer other than basic academics: * in the past years they offered gifted classes - that is no longer available (a gifted teacher was simply atrocious who made kids and parents to either exit the gifted program or hate it (by the way, the same teacher is still on staff and currently teaching 8th grade Language Arts) * no foreign language, Art or Music available as electives * only one elective available - PE * no gym or athletic facilities of any sorts (PE is conducted at the bus loop)

Leadership in this school is pure evil,the principal and demonic dean are well trained on covering up the truth even if it's for the well being of child. They try uphold a perfect image.They do not have the children's best interest in mind.All the principal and staff care about is a fake perfect school image.Beware if your child goes here.....

This school needs more help to properly work with special needs kids. Elementary school special needs teachers are overwhelmed, have no permanent assistants.

This school is in Federal violations - IDEA, is really sad because our special needs kids can have more from them, they are just like a Day Care for them.

I have to admit, my school is awesome even if I don't like school in general. The staff really cares about you. You actually learn here. I have been in this school since kindergarten and next year will be my last year. I'm going to miss this school. So many friends and great memories and even some bad ones but thats okay. I love Arbor Ridge.
