This school is deep trouble. They spend millions (by constantly begging parents for money) on the outside, but the people on the inside haven't a clue and are not qualified. Some in leadership roles do not have ed. degrees and have never taught a day. They've given titles to others, like their "curriculum specialist", whose previous experience was teaching pre-k, the task of choosing the school's math program, which has been a total disaster and outraged both parents and children as it's one of the worst math programs around. They let in anyone with pulse and a checkbook, and now their over ridden with children that have learning disabilities, but do nothing to help them. The fluff up the grades to make the parents think they're doing well, and then the kids flunk out in college because they were ill prepared. They treat their only asset, their teachers, like dirt, making them work extra hours before and after school while constantly berating them, and fire the ones that have any backbone or experience. And the worst part is, they do all of this under the guise of being "Good Christians". Do not under any circumstance consider this "school" for your child.
I'm guessing the people giving Kings Ridge high ratings here work for them. We had a terrible experience with this school and so have others we know. The teachers for the most part are very good, but the administration is terrible, including the lower school principal who refuses to take any suggestions and in fact, has been very stubborn and argumentative and we know other parents that have had the same experience. Kings Ridge readily admitted our child knowing full well she would need help with her learning disabilities and even though they assured us they would help, they did nothing. They did however do a great sell job, but after they got our money, the truth came out. We're leaving and so are many others. Avoid this school.
King's Ridge is exceptional in academics, the arts, and athletics. The goal is to help each child understand who they are, their purpose, and preparing them to impact this world. I am grateful for the opportunity to serve along side such caring and committed group of people.
My school is a safe environment for good students to have great experiences. KRCS is intentional about building the entire student as a well rounded individual. This place is much more than just a college preparatory environment.
Incredible school, such a great place for kids to thrive with great academics. Go Tigers!
The high school teachers give students lower grades than other area schools. This creates a great disadvantage to KRCS students applying to college. The athletic department is obsessed with winning and brings in transfers to bolster the programs at the cost of the returning students who want to play. Not a very Christian environment.
We enrolled our child in kindergarten at King's Ridge for the 2012-13 school year. It has been a complete disappointment. We found the administration to be inexperienced and insensitive. Good marketing but not consistent with our experience.
Our children have attended King's Ridge Christian School for the past 4 years. My ONLY regret is I didnt start them here in kindergarten. It has been a wonderful experience on EVERY level...teachers genuinely care about the success of the students both in and OUT of the classroom. They KNOW the students, my child is not lost in the crowd! Academics, Sports, Arts...are all great!
I have a 2nd grader and a kindergartener at KRCS and think that it is an excellent school that is worth every penny!! The academics, teachers, community, christian values . . . everything has exceeded our expectations.
We have three children enrolled in KRCS and are extremely happy with the curriculum, leadership, and the positive effect the school has had on our children.
We are in our 3rd year at this school. Not only do we feel our children are getting a solid education, but the families are great and very supportive of each other.
My children experienced a lack of consistency in the curriculum over a two- year period. This school is eletist with mainly very wealthy parents who have their own agendas.
We are just now ending our first year at KRCS, and our two daughters love it. We transfered from another Christian school due to a move, and found our daughters not skipping a beat either spiritually or academically. They were so welcomed with open arms that within a week they felt very much a part of the school, which is a compliment to not only the teachers and students, but also the administrative staff for creating this enviromment. Additionally, even though this is a smaller, yet growing school, they attack extra-curricular activities as if the school was much larger than it is. If there is a sport to play and interest in it, a team will be created. With the fine arts and music departments on board with this same attitude, this school will continue to grow and graduate well rounded kids prepared for college.
Our family moved just to be closer to this woderful Christian School. My son has been at KRCS for a few years now. We were so pleased with excellent job the staff did transitioning the students into the middle school. We could not be happier with the teachers and their dedication to helping each child reach his/her potential. We are amazed at how much the athletic program has grown each year and how much fun it has been to be a part of! We love this school and hope for all three of our boys and grandchildren to be KRCS Students one day!
Our kids love KRCS and the Christian enviornment has allowed them to be true 8 and 9 year olds. In addition, our son who is a high achiever has been able to excel in this environment.
Our family experienced several grade levels in the lower school. The school's growth has resulted in it's character and personality morphing into an elite group with minimal emphasis on Christian values. Curriculum is inconsistent and not always on grade level (either way above or below). Teachers point parents to costly tutors rather than offering adjunctive support.
Our experience has been very positive at Kings Ridge. We have two children who attend the lower school. Our questions and concerns have always been met with care and have been addressed quickly. As the school grows, the focus remains on christian values. Though we are not one of the schools' major financial supporters, our family is always treated like a cherished part of the community. We feel very blessed to have found such a wonderful school!
