it may seem like a lot, but is par for the course compared to others in the area.

No issues. Some of this is subjective, but my kids are enjoying learning here and are cared for. In talking with other parents in the area, RP compares well with them and our kids are doing and learning the same things. Summer just started, but the kids will be happy to be back this fall.

The only good thing at Ritchie Park was the Vice Principal and she left at the end of last year. The Principal is cold and uncaring and unresponsive to parent feedback. The paraeducators are mean and are allowed to belittle children. Some of the teachers are very good, but sadly, it is only in the early grades. The older grades have awful teachers. The answer to every problem is to ignore you. No one is willing to help your child. And they have awful special education services and are unwilling to provide services to your child.

I have two kids at Ritchie Park. One has some learning issues and received excellent attention and support. The other is well above grade level and also loves her teacher and her classes. Most of the teachers are excellent, as are the counselors and support staff. Parents are involved and the student body is wonderfully diverse. Kids are not too coddled yet very much cared for. Highly recommend.

Great school! The principal, Ms. Long is a great leader and an asset to this school. They are renovating all the bathrooms in Summer 2015. Hoping my daughter doesn't get moved to the new Elementary school in 2017.

This is the worst school! The principal is cold and uncaring. She only cares about test scores. The education is bland and the teachers don't care about your child. We kept telling the school that our child had learning disabilities and that there was something else going on. The school psychologist didn't test her because she said she didn't see any issues after observing our child for only 30 minutes in class on one day. We begged the 504 Team including the Special Ed. teacher, the school psychologist, the principal and her two teachers to please give her help, as she had been failing math for the past 6 years. They didn't do a thing. This year she started middle school. Thank God for the staff there! They found she has a learning disability as well as Autism! There was also a girl that broke both of our child's arms when she just started school there. The school didn't file an incident report and didn't punish this child! We should've sued them and the parents of the child that is still bullying our daughter! Poor, incompetent, ignorant, uncaring teachers and staff at Ritchie Park. PLEASE don't send your child there. Your child will thank you.

My son went to this school for 3 years and now since we have moved we had leave the school... it is the best.

My daughter has been attending RPES since the 2nd grade and it's been a wonderful experience thus far. As a former teacher, I am very impressed by RP's leadership, diversity and curriculum. As a parent, I enjoy the immediate responses I receive from my child's teachers.

My son attended the school from k-3rd Grade and had a fantastic time. I am glad was able to send him there till we moved. Thank you to the staff of Ritchie park.

Great atmosphere. Wonderful kids and parents are very engaged. The negative comments below seem very outdated. There has been a new principal here for 3 years and she is very responsive. After 2 kids and 4 years we haven't had a bad teacher yet. There are tons of extracurricular activities.
