Eagle Ridge middle school. My child was bullied in class, kicked, backpack zippers were ripped off while in class. The principal stated that the teacher never leaves the class but this was allowed to transpire. They did an investigation but were never able to find the culprits say the least of punishing them. All that was done for my child was moved to a different group but at least 1 culprit is still there. The only other school closer to us has a 30-person wait list to transfer. Before our child went there we were warned that 1 of our child's Elementary Teachers warned us about Eagle Ridge but that was a mistake on our part for not having them go to that other school.
My daughter went to Eagle Ridge for 6th, 7th, and 8th grades. The teachers ranged from good to excellent. The orchestra program is top -notch, among the best in the state. The volleyball program is also good. She made great friends here, serious students with high goals. However, the reason I am only giving it two stars is because of the discipline problems. My daughter and her friends said that it was frequently hard to pay attention in class because of all the talking and misbehavior. Occasionally, the entire grade would be punished during lunch because of the actions of a few. There were also several fights. The kids felt like the administration was constantly harassing them about minor dress code violations (like a logo being too big), while turning a blind eye to larger issues, such as the fights and other criminal activity. As a result, we decided to enroll our 6th grader in a charter school instead of sending him to ERMS. I hope ERMS gets the discipline issues sorted out, because there are a lot of great kids and great teachers there who deserve a better environment.
This is okay school. But everyone was transferring their kids to mountain view because we heard that eagle ridge didn't really care about their students and disciplined their kids horribly. And their was way too many fights and the fighters only got lunch detention while some kids got in school suspension (ISS) for talking in class or being out of dress code. This school is just whack. Also my sons English quit while he was in class in the first quarter of the school year.
This is a good school. Teachers are welcoming and do their best to help each child. However the 6th grade teachers can only do so much with so many new students. They do not have a accelerated program for the 6th graders which made this school year VERY boring for my daughter. We are told that there is an accelerated program for the 7th and 8th graders. We can only hope, otherwise we may have to look into charter schools.
We love ERMS!! My daughter became very ill during the middle of the school year, and the entire staff and leadership team rallied behind her to help her out. They are very fair, and the teams are nicely balanced between high expectations and kindness toward the children.
My daughter attended Eagle Ridge and I volunteered on the Parent Advisory Council. I was so impressed by the concern of the administration as they continually tried to better the school and serve the students. The calibre of the teachers was phenomenal. The one instance where we did have problems with a teacher, once parents contacted the principal, the situation was quickly dealt with. I would have no qualms recommending this school this other parents.
I love working at ERMS. The comraderie and support amongst the staff is professional and positive. Expectations are high and we're given the tools and encouragement to achieve those goals. Those two hand in hand is rare.
