PTSA meetings have low attendance. They are lucky to have 20 people in attendance. Principal in her few years has failed to create meaningful programs. Creekside has more programs and opened after Grand Ridge.

As a Grand Ridge parent, I am very pleased with the staff, programs, PTSA and overall academics at the school. However, the school is severely overcrowded and the situation is only getting worse. I wish I would have known this was going to happen before we moved into the neighborhood.

As a parent of two children at Grand Ridge, I can say we are truly fortunate to have such an excellent school in our community. My wife and I both help out in the classroom and at events and have been impressed with the staff and leadership at the school. Bright, caring and capable teachers combined with incredibly engaged parents make for a special learning experience. The Grand Ridge PTSA has had an astounding 100% family participation rate for the last several years.

Great school with enthusiastic teachers, administrators and families. The PTSA is the most active I've seen yet. So many parents putting their time and effort into making it such a great experience for all the kids. A very diverse population of kids that are learning everything from math, science and language arts & music to environmental care,tolerance and caring for the world.

I had Twins in 5th grade, the 1st year the school was open. They have now 'graduated' and I'll miss seeing the staff on a regular basis. Each child is encouraged to do their personal best. The teachers are highly skilled and work hard to bring out the best in each child. The principal is kind and puts the Kids first. She is a great example of a leader and easy to approach.

My child is a student at Grand Ridge. The school is new but lacks strong administrative leadership. Teachers and staff don t have warm report with each other or the parents. The facilities are nice with; student computers, LDC projectors and electronic chalkboards in every classroom; a computer lab and excellent library are also available. These resources go mostly unused and on top of that there is no budget for Music and Art. The curriculum is based on skill level and segregates students based on performance. The math curriculum is based on word problems and traditional math is not taught. This seemed to be driven by the WASL. Covered areas are not provided for the younger children as they wait in the rain for the first bell to ring.
