Wonderful Principal and staff.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted May 24, 2009

I have a special needs child and I also have a GT student that attends Ridgeview elementary, and I also volunteer at the school. So I've seen alot of the school in the last two years, my children have had four awesome teachers with big hearts. I'm moving soon and we will miss Ridgeview greatly, 5 stars given from my children and I.

I have two children in Ridgeview currently K and 1st grade. They are doing really well and the teachers are very attentive. They have art and character classes. The class sizes are 16 kids each. The only negatives I can see about this school have to do with the disorganized 'pickup' routine and a problem with head lice last year that was not addressed properly. This went on for the last two months of school but was finally addressed. As with any school, you have to make sure they stay on top of things like that. I have a child with a life/death allergy to fire ants and they have been very helpful and vigilant. For this I am grateful and relieved. It made up for the lice snafu last year.
