Longwood SchoolDistrict is well known for its special education programs, but a great program is only as good as it's teachers. The abilities of the individual teachers vary wildly at Ridge Elementary. The individual therapists are quite good, but some of the teachers could do with a little more sensitivity, patience, and a broader understanding in general of the learning disabled population.
Ridge is an excellent school. The teachers are very experienced, and are true educators.
This is my child's first week at this school and it's been a complete nightmare. I am very discouraged as a parent.
I wish I add a high rating to give but it's only week one and I am having so many difficulties for my child's care at Ridge Elementary that I am very disappointed and discouraged as a parent.
I am amazed with what my son brings home everyday. It is incredible what he is learning there. Great teachers.
Ridge school is one of the most fantastic Elementary school in the Longwood district. The teacher/staff are amazing with the children. I am happy that my 4 children attended this school.
My son attended k-3 at Ridge ES and I was very pleased with the school. They were right on top of him needing extra help as he entered 1st grade from his kindergarten teachers recommendations. They didn't wait until it was too late and he was behind on his academics. I also like that they are not afraid of showing REAL stats and not afraid how they are going to score like other top rated schools in the area. Talking to people who's kids attended schools that looked better on paper I found that in reality Ridge gave a much better education.
Ridge is a wonderful school District that really does care about their students. They take that extra time needed with their students so they can ensure all is learning best to there capabilities!
