Parents I have talked to express that this is a public school that resembles a private school. I have now sent my child to Cath. school and this school doesn't compare. This school had an overload of programs for the low-performing and not much for higher achievers or in the arts. Test scores seem to be the biggest concern. I didn't see much leadership from the principal as the vice principal seemed to do a little more. I felt the school itself was also overcrowded.

The quality of the teacher's in Ridgely Elementary School is top notch. They are there to listen whenever you need to talk. The teacher's will also take your child's learning ability into account when teaching. The children seem to enjoy going to school.

I think Ridgely Elementary School is the best. I have a son in 3rd grade and a son in Kindergarten, and they love going to school. The children are challenged academically to reach their full potential. There is great emphasis on teaching them what they need to know for statewide testing. The teachers are great! Both of my children have had first year teachers and veteran teachers and they have all been excellent. I also love the fact that there is a choir for K/1st grade, 2nd/3rd grade and 4th/5th grade. The parents are encouraged to volunteer. Which I think is a great idea so that you know what is going on with your childs education.
