C. Hunter Ritchie is THE BEST school in the area. Period! The entire staff of teachers and the administration are top notch. I have had two children go through the school starting with kindergarten (one is in 6th now and the other in 4th) and I couldn't be happier with their academic success. The school presents a love of learning and respect both for the staff and students. The classes are perfectly sized and the "all in" attitude of each teacher is clearly evidenced by the extra activities they offer. The physical education teacher offers year round after school activities geared towards fitness; the music teacher offers a full scale musical production and honor choir; the librarians offer Battle of The Books; I could go on and on. The very approachable Principal and VP make it easy to address any concerns regarding your child. The teachers: AS stated earlier, they are TOP NOTCH! Truly dedicated in their profession and commitment to each child. My kids absolutely love school and that is simply because of the teachers and the staff who create an environment that is warm, invigorating and enjoyable all around. I Love This School!

The teachers are amazing! My child is doing amazingly well and I fully attribute his accomplishments to the dedication of his teachers.

Mr. Bell is an excellent principal; he is fully dedicated to the well being of the students and faculty at the school. He remembers the names of the students, shakes their hands in the hallway, visits the Kindergarten students on their birthdays, and has been known to 'dress up' as a Native American Chief, Elvis (for the annual Sock Hop), and even a clown! He encourages parental and community involvement in the learning process. The staff at Ritchie is wonderful! The teachers are approachable and welcoming. They are true professionals who believe in developing each individual child's potential. The support staff (from the front office staff to the custodial staff) are helpful and contribute, without a doubt, to the great environment at Ritchie! Our children have received an excellent education here!

My son has attended this school for two years now and we really love it. It's been such a good environment for him and parents are encouraged, if not begged, to volunteer in the school, which is great. I only wish I could volunteer more often than I can. Mr. Bell, the Principal, has been great and you can tell he's very involved in the school and knows the children. My son's teachers have been wonderful as well and I do feel he gets some individual attention if he needs it. Jennifer C.

This school is absolutely amazing...from the custodial staff who have friendly smiles, to the principal who remembers each and every child's name. Each child works at their academic level. When I visit the classroom, I see children working -effectively- independently. I see each and every one being challenged, but not overwhelmed. My daughter and son both have received the individualized attention they need to be(and feel)successful. Parents are encouraged to be a part of the learning process. The parent volunteer programs are exceptionally strong. The staff at CHR truly care about our children, and it shows.

Mr. Bell is a principal beyond compare. He is fully involved with students at all levels and they learn respect from him. The teachers mirror the level of excellence displayed by Mr. Bell. Academic programs encourage independent thinking and creative learning.
