Great teachers, facility, they take a real interest in the children and learning.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted August 23, 2007

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!

Excellent support system from both teachers and principals.

Posted September 23, 2004

Though this is a new school the enthusiasm of the teachers led by the Principal is contagious. The 'Can Do' atttitude is imparted deep into the young brains. I liked the innovative disciplinary ideas.
