Administration that is not comfortable with parents. Teachers not up on research. School lacks technology.
I am in 8th Grade at Falcon Ridge Middle School and overall my experience has been great. Some teachers can be hard on you and make things long and complicated, but they are only trying to make you better at their subject. Before I came here, I was an average student and leaving for high school I have some of the best grades in the entire school. It takes hard work and determination, but it payed off in the end and I learned so much from being here. The teachers that I had were very nice and supportive if you were willing to ask questions, and they made the transition from elementary to middle school very easy. I highly recommend this school!
Most importantly, our daughter seems to like Falcon Ridge, after nearing completion of her 6th grade year. She seems to have adjusted well to the middle school experience and overall is happy at Falcon Ridge. However, with that said, she still doesn't seem as interested in certain subjects, as she was in elementary school. Her level of enthusiasm has dropped considerably since coming to Falcon Ridge. We typically don't like to complain or publicly say something negative about our schools because our teachers work so hard to meet our child's needs and they deserve a huge thank you. However, we believe Falcon Ridge has a long way to go in certain departments such as the english and reading department. We have had valid concerns about some of the teaching methods, curriculum and expectations, and have brought our concerns to the principal on numerous occasions. We have been treated very disrespectfully by the principal and the assistant principal to the point of being bullied and intimidated which led us to take our concerns to higher administration. Falcon Ridge needs new leadership! That would be a great place to start.
falcon ridge MS is awesome i'm a student. the band and choir programs are the best.
This is an excellent school . My daughter loves it !!, as do I . Top quality educators who care.
My daughter is in the 6th grade at Falcon Ridge and absolutely loves it there. How wonderful to have your child enjoy middle school. Great teachers & principal.
The staff and programs are top notch! The overall drive for the success of the students is a step above!
I have enjoyed my years at this school soooooo much. The extra curricular activities are great and the teachers make learning fun!
The sports are excellent, and the extra curricular activities are awesome!
We love the school and the district's on-line support. The on-line support allows a parent to keep track of assignments and grades. We have 2 8th graders and different levels for different subjects and they are both given support and/or challenge as the situation dictates. The extra-c activities are wide ranging and the sports are not just open for the star athlete, but anyone who wants to participate and then divided according to skill. We would highly recommend this school.
We love the school, the teachers, the principal, and our son is not at the 'top'! Everyone is so willing to work with our son, we can't say enough!
This is a horrible, demoralizing school environment for the self-esteem of the child. Highly competitive, outrageously selective- Students here are either at the high top or 'nothing.' My daughter transferred.
