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.
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.
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.
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.
i love this school...it awesome...only one thing...the extra activities need to be bumped up a little bit...i cant imagine going to any other school...
