Fantastic School. My 5th grader and 3rd grader both have learned and enjoyed with some exceptional teachers and the staff. Couldn't have asked for a better place to provide such a solid foundation to my kids.
School is great, excellent teachers but security needs to be reviewed. Noticed kids opening back door on back street at 2:35 pm and no teachers around. Noticed parents holding door next to cafeteria open to allow other parents get in. Entrances and school security needs strict review immediately. And please do not serve kids raw pizza.
Amazing school!!!This is my kids second year in riddle elementary.. Amazing teachers, principal.... Just love it...
This is an amazing school! The principle's philosophy is that the student body is one family, learning and serving together. Not only is education important to the staff at Riddle, but an emphasis on the whole child is stressed. The children are taught to reach out into their community and help others and become the best that they can be. Parents are welcomed and are heavily involved in the day to day activities of the children. LOVE this school!!
Great school, ethnically very diverse, which is a BIG + and makes the environment very competitive for my niece and nephew. Teachers are very engaged, caring, and deeply involved. School has stimulating academic programs which keep them fully engaged and challenged. I look forward to sending my son to Riddle next year.
My child will go to Kindergarten this Fall and Riddle is going ABOVE AND BEYOND to make the transition to elementary school as smooth as it can be. We've already been to one "story time" at the school library this Summer, and afterwards we walked around the school. I expect to attend 4 more of these story times plus two "popcicle" events this Summer and hopefully my daughter will be as comfortable with the place as I am by the time school starts in August! Principal and president of PTA were on hand on Tuesday to meet parents at story time. So far, I'm impressed, and I was a teacher in my former life!
Couldn't agree more with previous reviews - our daughter is in her 4th year there and can't get into the building fast enough every morning. We enjoy being able to visit for assembly, which is always fun, and lunch whenever we want. Staff and curriculum all teach students something most schools have forgotten, which is that there is way more to education than what comes from books. Keep up the great work.
ABSOLUTELY AMAZING school! My son LOVES the school, teachers & principal. VERY nurturing and welcoming environment. We have been super please with the Good Morning Riddle program every Friday. GREAT students and GREAT parent involvement!! Pretty close to perfect!!
The student population is VERY ethnic. Chinese and Indians account for an extraordinarily large proportion of the student body. But the principal is absolutely wonderful, as is the staff, and I have the highest regard for each and every one of them.
I have tried a few schools in frisco and in plano, but so far this is the best. My son loves it. He loves the teachers and the way they make him like school. The school is ver organized, good security, and everyone seems to be happy in there.
Extraordinary school!! My child loves school due to the wonderful staff and environment at riddle. Not only has his education been supreme here, but his confidence and love for learning have truly impressed us. The principal ms. Taylor is very friendly, visible, available and genuinely loves her students. The administration is very involved in the numerous activities this campus hosts. We love the friday morning 'pep rallies' (good morning riddle!) that parents are encouraged to attend. The school recognizes everything from the student's birthdays, acheivements both in and out of school, and they do fun things like singing songs/do skits/have special visitors---and just have a blast! all of my child's teachers at this school have been wonderful too. Riddle truly sets the standards for all other elementary schools!!!
This school is AMAZING! The teachers are super friendly and compassionate, as is the administrative team and staff. My son was READING in Kindergarten. He absolutely loves going to school. Riddle does fun field trips, creative activities both during and after school, and really make the learning process enjoyable. They had a camp-out for their last week of school - they brought sleeping bags, flashlights, the teachers made camp shirts for the students - and parents mailed letters to their child to the school just like a camp trip....how cool is that?! We cant say enough good things about this campus!
My kid is going to Riddle and I'm amazed how my kid improves on his reading after few months. The principal has great leadership, personally involve in all activities.
Both my kids are Riddle Students. My oldest started middle school and is doing a fabulous job. Riddle gave him a strong base, and I have all the wonderful teachers to thank for that.
Our son started 3rd grade here this year. So far, my wife and I only have good things to say. The Principal shows good leadership by personally being involved in school activities, and not just delegating. Though only 5 years old, I expect this school to swiftly build a solid reputation as the best in the area.
Very happy with the school - good balance of academics and other activities ....
Our 2 kids go here and I am pleasantly surprised at the organization and discipline displayed for an elementary school. Teachers are highly energetic and the Principal runs a tight ship, and is obviously determined to make Riddle a top rated school. Speaking to family friends whose kids go to other schools in the area, this appears to be one of the better schools in the West Plano area. Having relocated recently, we were also looking for a private school option, but after 1 year, we have changed our minds!
We recently moved here from the Northeast. My wife and I heard wonderful things about this school from our neighbors, and were happy to see that they were all true. The Principal, Mrs. Taylor is a warm and caring teacher who truly wants to make Riddle the best school around. My daughter loves her class and all that the school has to offer. I expect great things from this school!
Great teachers, facility, they take a real interest in the children and learning.
Having relocated and seen several school districts in a span of 4 years, I have to agree that Riddle Elementary is truly a great school for kids. The teachers seem to understand that young minds need more than just an academic education. They also need guidance in Life!
