I was excited about getting my son involved in a christian environment, so when I saw Ridge Christian School, I was eager to enroll my son. The school was great. The teachers there seem dedicated, hardworking, and caring. I believe they are genuine in their faith and christianity. As for the daycare center which is connected to the building...well...I know from personal experience, having been hired to work as a preschool teacher, that it is not the 'christian' atmosphere it claims to be. There is a lot of catty and outright unproffesional behavior from the management. I couldn't leave there fast enough, and took my son with me, despite the fact that I did like the 'school' part. The same managment that oversees the school cannot claim ignorance concerning the preschool area. I wouldn't recommend this daycare to my worst enemy.

From my school to my childrens' schools to my grandchildrens' schools, I have never been happier with a school than I am with RCA. Every teacher knows every child and will individualize to meet their needs. I go to teachers or the principal with any concern I have and they listen. The parent is heard at this school. It's worth every dime it costs. I thank God for leading us to Ridge.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any teacher information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
