Spring Ridge is a community school that works hard to involve all. The staff works hard and is dedicated to providing the best education to every child.

I have a child in second grade and one in Kindergarten, and we LOVE Spring Ridge Elementary. The teachers are really fantastic, and will work with parents in making the child's education work (both for highly gifted kids and kids with special needs). The PTA is very active, and the school population is wonderfully diverse.

I have a daughter in 2nd grade and she has absolutely fell in love with every teacher she has had since Kindergarten. Not only are the teachers incredible but the rest of the staff, even the cafeteria staff are incredible. I could not be happier with the extra help that S.R.E.S. has provided for my daughter as well. She has a learning disability and they have really done everything to help her overcome it. If you are looking to have your child go here I highly recommend it. Never have I seen such a staff as a whole so loving and caring for each individual child!!

Spring Ridge is a wonderful school. Great teachers, great parent volunteer and PTA involvement. The new administration at Spring Ridge had lots of improvements to make and are doing a wonderful job. They have made big changes improving the safety of our children and better programs at the school.

The school has a lot of special classes and a lot of help on one to one with each student. And there is a lot of diversity in the school from lot income to high income each student is treated as an individual

I could not ask for a better school for my children to attend. There is a sense of community amoung the parents, teachers and administration that gives the entire school a feeling of support. A lot of attention was given to the principal who was leaving last year, however, the principal this year brings with her a lot of strengths and ideas.

This school seems to be slipping. The parental participation continues to be good. The teaching tends to focus on struggling children. We have had excellent math teachers. Spring Ridge's PE classes for the last quarter have worked solely on cup stacking. Prior to that it was bowling. Much of the creative activity for the school has been focused on praising the principal. By this the kids are given assignments to write songs, poetry, etc in praise of the principal. Avoid this school and Frederick County Public Schools if you can. The quality of the school system on the whole appears to be on the wane.

Springridge Elementary has one of the biggest support systems in Frederick County. The students, the staff, and the parents give so much to make the school such a success that it is today. It's great to see a school and parent volunteers to go above and beyond to insure the children are getting the best education possible. They take extra precautions to ensure the safety of every child before, during, and after schol hours. I highly reccommend Springridge Elementary!

This is a very good school. Teachers are involved with their students and many parents and PTA members are active as well. Children will absolutely leave this school prepared for Middle.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Maryland used the Maryland School Assessment (MSA) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and grades 5 and 8 in science. The MSA is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Maryland. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.
