Ridge Ruxton has been absolutely wonderful in accommodating my brother's special needs and the faculty truly cares about the personal growth of each student. All schools could learn from Ridge Ruxton's example.

Ridge Ruxton is a wonderful school for special needs children. My son is 6 years old, and has been a student at Ridge Ruxton for 4 years. He loves going to school each day, and each person from principal, assistant principal, teachers, nurses and assistants all know him by name. The staff at Ridge Ruxton are phenominal and the care and love that they give to the students is heartwarming. In the 4 years that my son has attended Ridge Ruxton, he has made tremendous strides, and the thanks goes to the teachers at Ridge Ruxton. It is a special school for special kids, and I am proud that my son goes there!!

Ridge Ruxton School is a very special place where my developmentally-disabled daughter can feel confident and independent. The teachers and staff are extremely professional, competent and caring. May daughter has learned so much there! It is her home-away-from-home.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.
