This school is very organized. The teachers are very focused on an excellent level of achievement for each student. More extra curricular activities would be beneficial for this program, as well as review of materials needed to excel with exams. The students are expected to excel in every subject. The students are kept very structured and behavior standards are high. Children who begin in kindergarten and first grade have an advantage to learn the essentials, that are expected to be known in second grade. My child entered the school in second grade and is trying to learn what all the other children have already been taught in first grade, as the curriculum is different than other schools. Once my child is able to adapt, this can be a great school experience for her. Very keen on the organization of students and behavior standards.

I had my son just placed in this school. so far we are amazed with academics it is very good. It reminds me of east linn christian academy only i dont have to pay alot for it. I just teach about christ at home. It is well worth having him there. He has changed alot with his attitude about there school work. There system works well for him it keeps him motivated and his teacher mrs. villman is really sweet and strict at same time i like that in a teacher I wish all teachers were like that.

Sand Ridge is the best school. I am a 7th grader and I know that no other school can give you the amount of one on one time that SRCS does. During the 2007-2008 school year we were the only school in 3 counties awarded the excellent school award. I love this school and its staff.

The teachers are one of a kind, the students are happy, they are learning, they have the highest scores in the area. Parent involvement is high, it is a true community school and I am honored to have it available to my family!

In public school, you and your children do not get the family enviroment that you do in smaller schools, like Sand Ridge Charter. It makes a huge differance in how they feel and learn. The kids are able to pay more attention on how their doing in school than how popular they are and what they wear. The kids are very excepting to others. How I am able to interact with the teachers and not just the teachers of the immediate classes my children are in. I am able to get to know other teachers before my kids get into their class. You can have your religious beliefs without being frowned at. My kids are getting way better grades than before and dont get pushed to the way-side. GOD Bless this school.

From personal experience, the staff at SandRidge is amazing. Truly the best school I've come across in years.


Posted September 5, 2007

As a parent of a gifted tag student, I had high hopes for my child when transferring him to Sandridge. What I found, however, was great disappointment. The teachers are wonderful and caring, and the small classes are a real help to learning, yet my student was not able to be challenged in the classroom. It was impossible for him to learn at a level that would keep him interested, he was constantly given basic busy homework that bored him and left little time for extracurricular activities. There was also so little supervision on the playground, numerous problems occurred daily. The principle was often off-sight or unavailable and uncommunicative about problems and situations at the school. My biggest pet peeve was the selling of candy and soda in the lunchroom.

An excellent team of caring individuals who really care about teaching children about the core knowledge needed but also about kindness, integrity, values, and morals. I couldn't be happier with this school and my daughter loves it too!

I am a student in the 7th grade. I transferred from another school, and I love it here. The teachers here are some of the best I have ever had. Also the parents at SRCS are involved way more than any other school I have been to.I plan on staying all the way through high school!

I'm a student of the seventh grade at SRCS. I think this the best school in the state! My teacher is really the one who makes it great for me. I've always said to my mom that she is the best teacher I've ever had and probably ever will. Though my teacher has a huge part in it, I think no other school is better. If this school is closed or I am taken out of it, I would want to be home schooled because There is no other school I would want to go to!

I am not a parent but a 7th grader at Sand Ridge School. I think Sand Ridge School is a good school because the school has small classes so everybody will know each other. This school is also a better school because the school will help people that have problems get rid of they're problems. I say this school would be the best school for kids that need help or need to have someone help you individually on the subject you are stuck or don't get. I think this school is great for any kid. Parents can help on field trips or help on anytime during school. Parents can have conferences anytime really. This school will not let any kid get hurt during any time of school. This school beats every school in all of Lebanon. This school also has a dress code so no kids can be inappropriate. Safe. Yeah.

I am not a parent but a graduate. SRCS gave me what I needed to get into Linfield College, one of the best colleges in the area. The teachers were great and spent time making sure everyone understood. I am still good friends with most of my old teacher. I am actually having lunch with one next week. Small class sizes meant I got more attention and could actually LEARN the material. I am bad at taking tests, I totaly lock up. Despite this, SRCS helped me to pass the Iowa test at College+ level in all subjects but spelling and this was in teh 11th grade. I have always been poor at spelling. There are not a lot of options as to extracurriculars. If you have any questions about my experience at SRCS please feel free to email me at zatoichi99@gmail.com

Sand Ridge Charter School is a great school with great students, parents and teachers. Class sizes are small with a full time teacher's assistant in each classroom. The expectations for each student are high and the results are shown in the yearly test scores. Sand Ridge is k-12, and has many great extra-curricular activities throughout the year for all grade levels.

This is the most awesome school around. It exceeds in every way, including academically. Teachers, parents, and staff are all on the same page, when it comes to teaching our children. The education of our children is number one!
