The small amount of good teachers here are over shadowed by the large amount of uncaring ineffective teachers. When they fail at there job, their response is to find a way to blame the child. Their goal is to protect the school and make it look good. They don't care about the children nor their success. They care only about their school image and will do literally anything to keep up this false image. I would advise parents of children of color to consider moving to another school zone. Your child will be made to work 10 times harder than other children of a different race and when they do so successfully, teachers go as far as changing their grades and grading papers incorrectly to make them appear and feel less intelligent than they are. Horrible and disheartening experience at this school. If you choose to send your children here, keep very good records and listen to your children. This review is not limited to the teachers. Their principle and vice principle encouraged their behavior.

Moved here in February and I absolutely love this school. Staff is very friendly and organized. Teachers are polite. My daughter was barely reading or doing math, after the first week at this school she started reading, spelling, and doing math. I am impressed and I do not want to ever move from this school.

I'm a former student of CRE, now in middle school. This school is amazing. The day I moved in my house, CRE was being built. I learned so much and the teachers there were great. Field Days were awesome and it helps you make friends. The teachers are well trained and fully equipped for what thy are going to do.

My name is Keona and I am in the fifth grade and have been at CRE for six years.It is by far the best school ever. The principal is so encouraging and very understanding. All the teachers are very nice and the way they teach is great. They always break things down for you if you need it. In Cedar Ridge every year gets more exiting. Can't wait to see the new things that happen with the new fifth grade teachers they are all so nice and generous. My little brother is in the first grade there and loves it. Cedar Ridge is th best school someone could ever go to!

I Have had my child at this school for a couple of years now and its been a bad experience almost since day one. The teachers frustrate me because they tell me they are going to give my child the extra help that's needed and then never follow through. I do my part as a parent all I ask is that they do theirs! I've heard teachers/faculty yell at students which was shocking to me , it's so unprofessional!

I rated this school with two stars because my daughter went here for her second grade semester and I was not impressed. First when I enrolled my child in the school the staff was extremely rude and uncaring about the information we needed for my daughter to enroll....Once my daughter enrolled she told me that the teachers were very mean...she told me it was one in-particular time where she went to ask a teacher a question (who were looking at a video on youtube...not sure if teachers are suppose to do that but anyway) when my daughter asked the question, the teacher shooed her away with her hand. Her second grade teacher was okay...however my daughter felt she was extremely mean and yelled at the class alot which made it hard for my daughter to ask her questions because she was afraid of her.....the school's motto is to raise good citizens or something like that...ummmm yeah that's wonderful but I would rather their motto be something that is leaning more towards learning and raising good leaders....my daughter became very reserved and quiet almost mean when she would come home....when I asked her if it was the children who made her upset she told me.."no mommy it's the teachers

I have nothing but good things to say about this great school. My two sons attended for 2 1/2 years and they love it. I was soooo sad we have to PCS. Amazing!!!!! Teachers and Great school staff!!! Great hours and great bus program!!! We live in the community in front of the school on Euchee Creek and my kids took the bus in front of our house and same for drop off. You have to go through the front office for everything pick up, visits etc. And car riders have to have a paper on front of windshield for pick up. We miss it sooooo much!!!

We LOVE Cedar Ridge Elementary School. My daughter has had a very postive experience with the school. They have a program that lets you earn "Hoot Loot." It is a neat reward program and the children really look foward to earning the "Hoot Loot," which they can turn in for many different things throughout the year. They have tons of fun and educational field trips throughout the year and lots of fun activities for the children to get (and stay) involved in. GREAT SCHOOL!!!!!!!!!!!!

My children have gone to this school since it opened and I am glad we will be going to a new school next year. Teachers have been great but, administration could use some help starting with the one at the top. A total disconnect!

This school should be rated higher than a 7/10. Our family moved to the area at the beginning of the school year. Before we moved, our two children had been educated in a private school. However, after we heard about the quality of the schools in the area we decided to give public school a try. Wow...to our surprise the children in this public school were actually ahead of ours in their education. In spite of this, the teachers created plans and helped our children get up to the same level as the others. The faculty and teachers were always in communication with us and our children are happy in this school. We made a great choice and they will be returning to Cedar Ridge this coming school year.

First off - do not judge any school from others reviews - go there yourself if possible and see things first hand. If you do - you will see that CRE is an excellent school. My oldest child has attended since it opened and now my second child is there as well. We have experienced nothing but excellent teachers and staff members all around. The PTO is highly motivated and involved. Any concerns are addressed and there is always an open door for parents to have the opportunity to see their children blossom. The principal is involved (my children run up to hugg her) and every para pro we have had has been kind and helpful. Nothing is perfect, but this school is very close. We have to move and I pray we find another school as wonderful!!!

My son attended kindergarten and will not return for 1st grade. We will do private or homeschool. His teacher was caring and tried, but his paraprof was cold. He was bullied by classmates and on the bus. I never saw the principal out engaging the kids. There's a color coded smiley-frowny face system that on a daily basis labels children bad or good in which the class knows what you are. I visit and had almost every kid in the class tell me what color my son was on thinking he'd be in trouble right then and get a show. I saw my son, a fairly happy child that usually told the truth, grow sullen, aggressive, & withdrawn with stomach pain and frequent illness. He began to lie constantly. That has slowly been eliminated over the summer and I see confidence returning. He didn't have these issues in KY Head Start.

My child began kindergarten the year that Cedar Ridge opened. We have been more than pleased with every aspect of the school. Everyone, from the administration, teachers, staff, and parents work hard to make this a great school.

My son attended Cedar Ridge for 1st and 2nd grade and I can't say enough about this school! All the teachers have email, which makes it easy to communicate back and forth, with out having to leave voicemails or make phone calls, which I love!!!!! The teachers also truly care about their students and seeing them progress! I live next door to a teacher at the school who had a baby and missed the end of the school year and she was truly sad that she missed the end of the year and missed seeing them get their end of year awards!! This school is great and we are going to miss being here next year, because we are moving back to TX, but this school has set a high standard for his next school to live up to!!!!!!
