The administration is supportive of the teachers and the teachers, in turn, provide effective, tailored instruction based on the child's ability. I had 2 children attend this school over the last 9 years and have always had a positive experience with the teachers and staff. The community and PTA have a large presence as well at the school. It is true what they say, "It takes a village to raise a child." Forest Ridge and its community is a prime example of this!
I have two kids at Forest Ridge, and our experience has been fantastic so far. We've had excellent teachers, challenging work and the kids are excited to attend school each day. The PTA is very active and involved, which makes for a positive experience for the students, the teachers, parents and administration.
I have two children enrolled at FRES and I could not be happier. The staff is very welcoming and the teachers are extremely engaging. I am surprised that the school is only rated at a "7". It is a 10/10 in my book!
I have a first grader at Forest Ridge who has been doing really well since she entered last year in Kindergarten. She was already very advanced in reading when she entered and her teachers have consistently been pushing her to reach her full potential. Very early on she was grouped according to her reading ability and according to math ability (in a separate group meeting with a different teacher), so it's clear to us that FRES teachers really care about their little learners and are doing their best to help them excel by offering appropriate teaching material. My daughter loves all of her teachers. The PTA is also very active. I am pleased to see the school's rating at 7 this year up from a 6. I couldn't understand why the rating had dipped so low because our experiences have always been quite good. I expect the rating to continue to rise based on what we've seen!
My children and I love Forest Ridge. The teachers are outstanding, highly motivating while making learning fun. They do an excellent job of bringing together lessons from all subjects into creative programs and projects. The PTA is wonderful, an energic and dedicated group who sponsor many activities for the students.
