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.

I hate this school. Their grades are high because they hold back the kids that challenge the teachers ability to teach. Most kids are held back right before hitting FCAT testing grades so that it will not impact the schools rating. Most of the teachers will sweet talk you in to thinking the children are better of being held back but is is only to not lower scores. Be forewarned.

Arbor Ridge is the best educational facility I have ever been involved with. My son has been there from K-8 and received great instruction and caring. His academic excellence is due to the high standards of all staff and the commitment they have to developing a child into a responsible, excelling student. Thanks for the support, fun, and learning over the years.

Fantastic school. My son is currently in first grade and is currently in a ASD classroom. The principle is encouraging of the special needs students and everyone works towards inclusion. I trained as a IEP advocate (the school doesn't know) and every IEP meeting I go to they are already suggesting interventions before I can. One of the best OCPS elementary and middle schools for children with autism. We are making sure we are not going to move just to stay near this school. They are moving towards inclusion next year for my son in a co teaching classroom with staffing support.
