This is my first child's first year at Parr's Ridge and I am extremely pleased with the entire staff at Parr's. My daughter loves to go to school and talks about it all the time. I have seen great educational programs with the school system, and I know that they are helping each child on their different levels of learning.

Especially dedicated teachers, aids and administration staff. Outstanding environment, both culturally and physically. We have been lucky our daughter was able to attend. She sings the Polar Bear Pride song just about every day - even in the summer months. We attribute her love of learning to an outstanding atmosphere at Parr's Ridge. It would be so nice, however, to institute a dedicated technology class in Elementary and Middle schools in Carroll County.

My child attended Parr's Ridge since it opened fall of 2005. I could not have been happier during our 3 years. The staff and administration are wonderful and they truly want success from each child. We had a wonderful experience and I can not wait for my next child to attend.

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.
