The principal and staff went above expectations to make sure my child had everything to succeed. If you as a parent want help they are there for you.

When good manners aren't taught at home, teachers and staff have to do it at school. Middle school is not as nurturing as elementary school. I've found if you give respect at NRMS, you get it back. Great school with CARING staff throughout. Volunteering at your child's school can lead to a better understanding of what happens there. :)

my daughter went there for the 2012-13 school year. I wasn't thrilled with the help in the office and support staff. like they were above mere student parents. we needed a transfer for a district account status and they deleted the whole thing. I ate lunch with my daughter and it felt like a prison. the man teaching choir was quite a good teacher. all in all we're glad to mhave moved. I cringed at the thought of calling or going to the office for anything.

Your neighbors on Douglas Ln. are so proud to be able to give up some of our property for the safety of the students. While this construction is going on, the city has put a temporary sidewalk for the students to walk on and a temporary road so that the traffic can move more smoothly. It makes it safer for them to be out of the way of the cars, the work tractors and trucks. Some of your students seem to think they are invincible because they insist on walking in the street. Most of them do use the sidewalk and it is very much appreciated. I personally asked two boys very nicely if they would move to the sidewalk where two of their friends were walking. They were rude, laughed and refused to move out of the street. Cars were having to stop to wait on oncoming traffic then move partially into the other lane to avoid hitting them. They just this was all just very funny. Like they own the road were thinking hit me if you dare. It is dangerous enough with all the detour posts up in the middle of the road and the lanes being narrower than usual. I guess what I am asking of you is somehow make an announcement to your students about using the sidewalks instead of the streets.

NRMS with its current administration is definitely not the best atmosphere. Bullying is accepted as the norm and if you are one of the staff s children RULES don t apply to you. My child has been treated horribly there. My friends child was picked on all year by his teachers child and their friends. When confronted the admin did nothing to her. Of course I have heard it Takes a Village to raise her kids. That being said I feel the staff should def hold their kids to the same standards as others if not higher ones!!!!

To the anonymous post on June 13th...in the context of your communication, you need to use "you're" not "your". As for the relevancy of my post, my son went to North Ridge....and I didn't like it much either. As a friend I will say, if you can't communicate with the educated fools (at the school) contact the super' and also there are great charter schools that are free. As for North Ridge it is a top rated school due to the teachers being required to shove test prep down these kids throats...alas, the test scores are immensely high ; therefore this school gets more govt' funding. Did I mention the quarter of a million dollar+++ home$ in the neighborhood? (plus two streets of affordable duplex's and about a sprinkling of about 10 surrounding neighborhoods that are in the $90k-$150k range.....) Other than that, if you want your kid to go to North Ridge Middle...be a rich snob and you'll blend in PERFECTLY.

Where do I start. Teachers don't communicate with you when your trying to get work information or a plan for your child. Trying to set up a meeting with anyone in that school is like your asking them to chop their arm off. This year has been full of bad experiences that if parents would know they would have major concern of their kids attending this school. I will continue at a later date with more details. As of now glad this year is over.

This school has by far been the best I've gone to . I loved the teachers here . They are very responsible and amazing at what they do . They school its self is nice and I can definatly call it home . Punishments are made in a orderly way , and principle Mr. Ellis is very kind and very good at what he does . I give north ridge middle school a perfect 10.


Posted February 2, 2011

I have seldom seen teachers work so hard, conducting tutorials before and after school and manning sessions to help students with their work. One of the greatest challenges of middle school is moving students toward the responsibility of taking charge of their own success. Expecting a teacher with 6 classes of students to communicate with every parent once a week is unrealistic at best. North Ridge has an exceptional group of well-mannered, terrific students and some top-notch extra-curricular programs. We also have some great parents we can count on to help when we need them. We do want to improve to meet students' needs. But if you walk the halls, you will see happy kids surrounded by folks who really care about them. Gotta love it.

This school is excellent especially compared to the others in the district. Defnitely the least disciplinary problems, greatest faculty, and most experienced office staff.
—Submitted by a student


Posted May 28, 2009

I was frustrated at the lack of communication from the office staff and the bulk of the teachers. We never received vital information from some teachers that affected our son's future. They were apologetic for mistakes made, and I know that no one is infallible, but, you would expect better attention to detail from an 'exemplary' school. One piece of advice, stay in contact on a weekly basis, don't expect them to contact you.

This school has the enviroment of private school....it was a lifesaver for me....I give this school a 10..Keep up the good work.

Posted August 25, 2007

The staff at this school is very rude (especially the office staff) The principals are very narrow minded on how the intemperate the district rules. The 8th grade Pre-AP science department was a great disappointment.

About the tests


In 2012-2013, the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) was used to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8; in writing in grades 4 and 7; in science in grades 5 and 8; in social studies in grade 8; and end-of-course assessments for English I, II, and II, Algebra I and II, biology and US History. STAAR is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Texas. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

The different student groups are identified by the Texas Education Agency; if there are a small number of students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


Texas uses Accountability Ratings to indicate the overall performance of each school and district. The ratings are based on TAKS test results, dropout rates for grades 7 and 8 and school completion rates for grades 9 through 12. Schools and districts rated under standard accountability procedures are designated as Exemplary, Recognized, Academically Acceptable or Academically Unacceptable. Schools and districts rated under alternative education accountability (AEA) procedures are designated as either AEA: Academically Acceptable or AEA: Academically Unacceptable.
