Great teachers genuinely concerned for students

Teachers care greatly for my daughter. I've seen how they take the time to explain the concept to her and help her to surpass her level. Thank you Middle Ridge for being there.

The staff at this school is really good, but they face a lot of challenges. My daughter hated going to school everyday although she was a straight A student. The first opportunity I had to get her out of that school I took it and I'm thankful I did!!

This school, once you are envolved, is a great school. This school needs more parent involvement.

The administration is focued on what is best for students. The teachers are caring and teach to standards. 2007 PTO board of officers have many good ideas.

Middle Ridge has some of the most qualified teacher around. They challenge thier students and push them to better themselves. Like all other schools you have some negatives. Parental support is lacking and there are a few behavior problems in the school. I know my child it getting the best education in the county.

As the parent of two girls who attend this school, I can say that I'm more than happy with the growth I've seen in this school in the last two years. The teachers really care about how the students learn and they are very creative into finding what works for every child. The only problem is that they do not place students in different groups according to their knowledge, or grades, or understanding. They only do that in Reading and the Qwest program, but not in an overall basis, which would be very helpful for those kids who are advanced. VCL

CRCT - What a joke this is for some students. The state of Georgia expects our school to administor a test to a 'group' of children..not all mind you...who can't even read and don't want to. They do not take this seriously regardless of how hard you try to get them to. These children don't even read the question before they are answering it. Then when the results come back parents want to blame the teacher or the school. There should be a box to mark for those students who just don't try...those students should not be counted. These students arrive with an attitude, half asleep, not feed, late, and unprepared...and who do we want to blame...the teachers. Hello...whose fault is all this...the parent, caretaker or whoever has the children this week that is who. Stand up take responsibility for what you brought into this world! A Parent At MRE
