A Fantastic school. I have had 3 children attend Royal Ridge and I have been very pleased with the teachers and staff. Everyone is very courteous and helpful. Their Self Manager program is outstanding and is a great tool for motivating the students. One of my children is in the special education program and I have been very pleased with her academic success. The teacher are very accesible via e-mail or telephone calls.

Royal Ridge is a wonderful school. The teachers have great communication with the parents. Parents can contact teachers via email, as well as in the traditional manners. There is a great deal of parent involvement. PTA is an important part of the school.
