We absolutely love Ridgecrest! My daughter is a kindergartener at this school she loves it, mrs.norris rocks! The principal is very hands on he stands out front every morning and gives the kids fist bumps as they come in! The office staff is awesome! Kids all seem to be great my child has ever had a issue!

My son went to Ridgecrest until we moved out of Amarillo at the end of last year. AISD has a gold mind here! The teachers are amazing and the curriculum is way ahead of the curve compared to the rest of the state! I stay in touch with a few of the teachers via Facebook and pinterest and I can see their dedication shine through when they are constantly looking for new ways to teach new things through new concepts, rather than finding a new workbook with new worksheets to just copy and handout! Bravo, Ridgecrest! We sure do miss you!!!

Ridgecrest is a quality school. The teachers are knowledgeable and care about the students. The principal is always available for students and parents and she is knowledgeable as well about the needs of the school. Lots of student recognition for jobs well done. All aspects of this school are excellent!

I have been so happy with Ridgecrest. The teachers are knowledgeable and work well with all children. You can tell they love teaching. The principal knows the children by name, she is available to address parent's needs or concerns. She greets parents and makes them feel welcome. The office staff is friendly and also makes you feel part of the school. It is a great place for my children to attend school.

My daughter started Kindergarden @ Trinity Lutheran this year in which I removed her do to safety reasons, I enrolled her @ Ridgecrest 2.5 weeks into the 1st 6 weeks, I spoke w/ staff about my reasoning for the change and they really made us feel welcome! In fact my daughter was chosen as a good citizen the 1st 6 weeks! I am very pleased and would recommend Ridgecrest to anyone that is interested.
