This School and the District are over rated and under funded. Parkway was created in a different era. The district is too big and does not work demographically . The residents of Town & Country and Chesterfield do not get their fare share for what they contribute in taxes with many luxury homes in the area. Mason Ridge is old and out dated.
Mason Ridge also has an issue with diversity. It a very diverse student body but not so with the teachers. Their ratio must be the lowest in Missouri.
We were a new family from illinois. Going through many difficult medical transitions for one of my children. But this school brought out not only the educational aspect of what they do but also the family environment. My son learned so much in such a short and difficult time that I will always be grateful to the warm loving staff at mason ridge. This school deserves all the recognition it receives. I agree that this school is amazing. And wonderful. I can't wait for my son to continue experiencing what the teachers and staff have to offer. I love this school. I wish it went to eight grade. I'm going to hate when he leaves for middle school next year. But then again the middle school has the same loving nature. It's one big family far as I'm concerned.
This is a fantastic school with a strong network of parents, teachers, administrators, and staff. In addition to the outstanding education, students are taught to be good stewards of society. We have been extremely happy with our choice to send our children here.
We were new to the school this year, having transferred from another area school. We were quite nervous for our girls in adapting to the new environment and the new curriculum. I can't express how relieved we are and how happy we have been with Mason Ridge faculty and staff. They have created a wonderful learning environment that is like a family. The support our girls have received has been unbelievable, not only from their specific teachers, but the principal and the vice-principal. Also, the education - not only standard learning but such creative, fun ways to teach the curriculum. We are very pleased with our move and sorry we had not done it earlier.
Very pleased with the variety of great opportunities for students to be involved beyond the classroom. Impressed with the amount of parental involvement that always seems welcome. This is a place where it's "cool" to be smart.
This is not the school that it used to be. This used to be known as the hidden gem of west county with high levels of extra-curricular activities and parental involvement. The principal was replaced a few years ago and it has gone downhill since then due to lack of leadership. Several of the better teachers have left. Four of my children have attended but I switched my youngest to another school.
AWESOME school. Can not say enough good things about the true community at Mason Ridge. The teachers are highly experienced and really care about the students & the parents are very active. I too did a lot of research and learned that people scope out homes in the area just to try to get their kids into Mason Ridge.
