We recently just moved to the area, and I have to say the staff at Ridgeway made our son feel so welcomed, they gave us a tour of the school, and everyone seemed to know who he was even before he started school, The staff is so welcoming! It made me as a parent want to go to school!
Ridgeway Elementary School has the kindest most caring faculty. From the principal to the lunch aides, they have all guided my child as if she was their own.
The staff is wonderful, my kids enjoy going to school every day and learning. Thank you Ridgeway.
Ridgeway school is all about the students! This school is always on the cutting edge! The curriculumn is developmently appropriate and the teachers always push the kids to do their best! It is great to see so many enthusiastic teacher's under one roof that love what they do, it shows through each and everyday when the children come home with the same type of excitement in their voices when telling us parents about their day! Keep up the good work Ridgeway staff!:) It is important that our children love to learn, continue to grow, and enjoy their learning experiences. Ridgeway school makes this possible for my child! I thank you!
My daughter is excited and happy to go to school everyday. She is learning so much already. She loves the other students and the teachers.
Ridgeway has wonderfully supportive parents. My kindergarten students are eager to learn and excited about everything.Our Pricipal is also always there with an open door ready to listen! It is a great place to work
The school is student centered and fosters a partnership with parents and the community.
I LOVE Ridgeway School. The teachers are fabulous, and always welcome and encourage parent involvement. I couln't see my kids going anywhere else!
I love Ridgeway!!!! I have never seen a group educators work so well together. The sense of unity you encounter when you enter the school is heart warming. I love that my children are going to get a wonderful education because the school is filled with motivated teachers. I love that my child comes home everyday from school telling me her day was wonderful. Ridgeway is a Fantastic school!!!!
The teachers are so incredibly dedicated and caring. They work so hard to make sure their students get the best education there is.
Ridgeway is the warmest and most loving place for our children to learn and thrive! I will be so sad when my daughter moves up to middle school. But who knows maybe they'll still have a need for me to volunteer there! All the teachers my daughter has had so far are incredible, dedicated & inspiring teachers...love them!
I love this school, my daughter was in Toms River school district and since moving to the Manchester school district, she has improved soooo much in her learning skills. She is slower in learning and fell between the cracks at TR and was left behind, she has just blossomed since being at Ridgeway
Years ago I went down the same hallways as my son is now. He is going into 2nd grade now. I think this school has progressed over the years and that there is so much more our kids are learning at an earlier age. I believe this school is preparing our kids with excellent education. My son had homework every night last year. SO I can't agree with the no homework statement below.
I think that th teachers and staff at the school work wonderfully with the children. As far as the comment about homework, I think they allow you the parent time to interact with your child on the weeknds, so take your child somewhere educational or enjoy time reading a book with them. My child is in kindergarten and has learned how to sing, read, write, and do arithmatic. But I also spend several hours a day teaching my child at home and reading with him. To better support the school system you also have to start educating at home.
Neither of my children have very much homework during the week and never on weekends. I believe more can be done to help the children actually learn rather than just passing them on with the 'no child left behind' law.
