If you want to live in almost all white neighborhood and have no diverse culture, this is your school. There some attentive teachers. The way the students are taught is more about individual learning, with multiple testing through the year, and not team/group oriented. Be ready to be a helicopter parent with this school's calendar. If your child forgets gym shoes, library books, etc. on one of the rotating days, the teachers discipline the students using shaming techniques. If you want to be involved in the school leadership, don't get involved with the PTO, unless you enjoy high school girl drama, by woman adults.
We LOVE Redtail Ridge! I have a 5th grader who started the year this school opened. I also have a 2nd grader. We have been AMAZED with the teachers and support throughout the school. As mentioned in a previous review dated 7/13/2014, I do not believe that the current principal would at all participate in any type of discrimination. Harassed...really? That is ridiculous! The principal, the staff and teachers are very loving of all students and inclusive of all. The school is top in the district for special needs. Parent involvement is strong. This school has provided an amazing elementary experience for my kids.
How can people post inaccurate posts...Redtail Ridge's staff and administrator are nothing but caring and inclusive of all! Special needs students and students of all cultural backgrounds are all treated fairly! Some people may not like rules or consequences set forth by staff, naming it unfair. I have NEVER known any parent expresses concerns, just love for the school.
If your children are of color you can forget this school. We had a terrible experience at this school and had to pull my children out,, they were being harassed by the teachers and I was harassed by the principal and told we didnt belong and needed to move from Savage area!!!
Great school, reduced groups, teacher leadership and great material. My kid loves Red Tail Ridge and I am very proud that my taxes are being put to work in such an excellent school. I just wish that parents would get more involved.
