(an addition to my earlier post). ERA claims that its high school is "rigorous." Compared to non-AP high school courses, that's true. But as I stated earlier, there is so much memorization of trivia that no student will need to remember after the test. That is NOT meaningful education. Way too much ERA high school work isn't rigorous in a good sense - it's pointless. A huge practical downside to the high school is that most kids' GPAs are way lower than peers at other schools, which makes college admissions challenging. Example: about two years ago, an ERA staffer told me about a kid who scored 31 on the ACT test - very high. But his GPA at ERA was only 3.1. At any other school, a 31 ACT would only be earned by someone with a GPA near 4.0. I'm against grade inflation, giving high grades for little accomplishment. But here's where the pointlessness of so much of the ERA curriculum hurts kids' college chances. They're tested on massive amounts of trivia that is soon forgotten. Their grades are lowered because of this type of bogus "rigor." From what I've seen of AP courses, kids taking those are on a level with the ERA kids. DON'T send kids to ERA high school.

Eagle Ridge Academy..........Do not expect great teaching in AP Calculus or AP Physics at this school. It is VERY poor. The teachers are done teaching and it shows. The students are on their own for these classes. Pull your students out before high school if you are looking for excellence in Math and Science.

ERA saved our son! This school has great teachers, hard-working administration and high standards. He has thrived in this environment and is well prepared for college and beyond.

We started at the school in the Fall of 2010. The kids started in Elementary school and one of the kids has moved to middle school. The homework load is demanding. The kids are learning alot! I enjoy the administration and the majority of the teachers. We have had a really great experience with nearly everyone we've worked with at Eagle Ridge. I love the curriculum.

Eagle Ridge is a great school! This is our eighth year and I'm extremely pleased with all aspects of this school. It seems their biggest challenge right now is managing growth - a nice problem to have! Any discrepancies in the past can best be described as growing pains or the result of former teachers with a personal axe to grind against former administrators. ERA has a wonderful, rich, diverse population of students and parents that never ceases to amaze and befriend each other. Each year students have more opportunities for achievement and growth. ERA may not be for everybody, but for those families seeking a traditional, classical education, or for a refreshing alternative to typical public school indoctrination, this school is the best. This school has never strayed from its mission statement. Watch for more great news coming from Eagle Ridge Academy.

This is our fourth year at ERA and we are happy to have a fantastic school to send our children to. All of our teachers have been fantastic, the curriculum is top top notch, and we are thrilled to see what our children are learning in comparison to students at other schools. Yes, it is a fairly new lower school, and we expected a few bumps in the road. I however, believe that things have gone rather smoothly. The administration in place now is solid, and the school is on a great path. I would recommend this school to anyone. It is an education far beyond what you will get at other districts.

I am very unhappy with this school. If you have a small child starting school (kindergartner) or a child in first/second grade. DO not make the mistake and believe the false promise of this school. It does NOT deliver! The teachers continue to disappoint. They are allowed to hold children to an unrealistic expectation yet they have zero accountability. I welcome high expectations, this isn't about "poor Suzy falling behind" this is about teachers who haven't a clue how to teach. Administration doesn't care about parents, they will not listen to frustrations, all you will get is lip-service. They have a long waiting list that will eventually dry up and then maybe then they might have a clue. My heart breaks for all the children who are falling in the cracks at this school. Even if you don't send your child to this school you should be outraged with this school as a tax-payer!

Eagle Ridge Academy is a great school. This is our family's eighth year at the school. Yes, there have been some bumps in the road with the turnover of staff, but this is not unusual for a new charter school and our overall experience has been excellent. Due to the rigorous curriculum and high standards, this school is not for every student. We have let each of our three children make their own decision as to whether they want to attend Eagle Ridge or another school. They need to take ownership of their education. After completing middle school there, each of them chose to continue on for high school. They could clearly notice the diffence in the quality of their education compared to their regular public school peers. Even though Eagle Ridge focuses on Liberal Arts, our oldest son is excelling academically as he wraps up his second year of a Mechanical Engineering degree. Our second son will gradute in two months and is also pursuing an engineering degree. The teachers are stellar!! Each time I leave a parent conference, I am in awe of the quality of teachers. It is apparent that they know my kids' unique character and learning style and find it a joy to educate them.

My daughter attended Eagle Ridge Academy for 4 years. We were very happy with her overall experience, although staff turnover was an issue. Maybe because it was such a small school, it was more apparent than at a larger institution. We came from a private school background, and found ERA to be comparable in every way. My daughter may be the exception to the rule, but she never had more than an hour of homework and usually it was only 1 or 2 nights a week. She took both the AP English and Biology tests at the end of her sophomore year and scored a passing grade on both despite the fact that ERA doesn't offer AP classes. Only negative - drop off and pick up is a time consuming endeavor. Have your kids ride the bus if they can! No school is perfect in every way for every family. But I would encourage parents to put this school on the list of options for their kids. It has many benefits and far fewer negatives than public school.

My child has spent 3 years in middle school at Eagle Ridge. It used to be a smaller school from 6-12th grade only but has now grown to a much larger one starting from Kindergarten - 12th grade. The building has separation between the upper and lower school. It is nice to be able to send all your children to the same school. The positives of the school include young, enthusiastic and dedicated teachers who love their subjects. They really inculcated a passion for arts in my child. The classical curriculum integrates English, history, art and music which leads to better learning. The new House system in the school has potential and I like the uniforms and the discipline. There is a lot of homework assigned but overall it's good for my child. Extra curricular is dependent on student participation and parent involvement which has been little lacking due to school's smaller size. However, they still have some fun activities during the year. The negatives are the ever changing administration and constant staff turnover which does not allow for consistency in the school's goals and objectives and hence overall performance. However, I still recommend the school for arts focused students.

Previous parents listed the things that they did not like at Eagle Ridge , I would list the same things as poitive: amount of homework, curriculum that is very challenging, teachers that are young and enthusistic, children who are very nice and diverse. Problems that I raised were addressed promptly by the staff. I am so happy with the school, even though my child does not perform very well, but it is due to the fact he was going to regular public school in Wayzata, where grades were not given for hard work, but just for turning assignments on time. My daughter attends Edina schools, and I cannot wait for her to get into Eagle Ridge, because Edina standards do not meet my standards. Children do not learn basics in regular public schools, too much attention given to innovative teaching instead of learning multiplication table by heart. Noo real homework is assigned at regular schools, mainly because parents consider it to be too much. I think the more you solidify what you were taught in class by doing homework, the better you know the material. Overall, I think I had made the best choice: feels likea private school, but without the cost!

I attended a prep school as a teen. This is NOT a prep school. Standards are lower than honor's classes in local public high schools. High turnover of good teachers. We left due to the administration. Student population was nice. No special ed or diversity.

I have a long history with ERA, almost since the inception of the school. As the others reviewers have stated there are administrative and staff issues, high overturn of talented teachers, and internal politics. The administrative staff is rude with the exception of the secretary at the lower school, she is a very gracious and professional woman. The school has a focus on its own excellence, not on the individual needs of the students. It is the school reputation that is paramount with the needs of the students put in second place. There is a great deal of "testing" so ERA can statistically "prove" and uphold its reputation. It is a lot of pressure for the kids being continually tested. The school is focused on the wrong prinicipals, such as whether or not a shirt is fully tucked into a student's pants/skirt instead of on the success and expression of the student. Individual expression and talent of students is stiffled and detention is given for absurb reasons. The homework time is generally excessive, taking at least 1-4 hours per night. If your child is exceptionally geared toward academics this may not be the best school for your child.

(Continuation) The administration is a joke. Staff acted very immature. The former principal interfered in students' personal lives. He'd seperate couples from classes they had together, even if they never caused any problems and really had an interest in that class. He ignored parents complaints on this matter. He personally insulted seniors going to community colleges, even if they were going purely out of financial reasons. You'd hear students screaming at him or come out crying from his office. But they fired him, so the administration should get better. Overall, I am glad I went there. There are good and bad things to all schools. I am a senior and have been attending since freshman year.


Posted October 25, 2011

Its a really bad school, yes it does challenge students, but teachers are rude, the staff doesnt act mature and the school needs to focus more on what goals the students want toward their future career. Detentions are given for the most absurd reasons, and homework isnt always just 1 to 2 hours. How do our children get the time to start out with a job to learn how to be more independent when school runs from 8 through 315 and plus the extra 4 hours of homework?

I am disappointed in the school. I hope as the year progresses, I will feel differently. I feel as if this school is average when compared to other classical education/college prep charter schools. I have yet to see anything that sets this school apart as "great". I really wanted to love this school, but it's just average, so far.

Students must pass the MCA-II/GRAD in order to graduate from high school. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

The different student groups are identified by the Minnesota Department of Education. If there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, data is not reported for that group.
