The office Secretary, has the same name as a tv show that starred Julia Luis Dryfus, and she needs serious customer service training! She has to be the ruddest person behind a counter I've ever had to deal with. Each time I've had to contact the school this woman has come off aggressive and hostile. The principle does little to help address individual problems. Some of the teachers seem very callous and appathetic. They don't want to work with parents and the times I've tried to speak my concerns about my student to a teacher I was met with again hostility, like It's not their problem and I'm wasting their time. It's sink or swim here.

As a junior this year it safe to say I know the kids and teachers of ER pretty well, but in my experiences they guide you to success and don't hold your hand in the process which prepares us for the world and gives us a better grasp on things. Of course every school has it's up's and downs but out of all I wouldn't pick any other school. (:

Emerald Ridge is a very special place. I student taught at ERHS in 2006. The school has magic in its walls! The kids are colorful and friendly, the staff is fun and truly cares about kids, and the administration is simply world class in all its endeavors. They're supportive of teachers and parents, in addition to being forward-thinking about education. Walking the halls, there is definitely a different energy at ERHS. Kids are recognized for their achievements, and notable programs include Video Production/Technology, Choral Music, Theatre/Improv Group, AVID, and Leadership. It was ranked in Newsweek's Top 5% of Schools in 2007. One of the ER's goals is that each student is well known by an adult in the school, and it seems true. Emerald Ridge is a fabulous, cohesive unit. I would recommend this school for any child, and if you get an opportunity to work there, you're extremely lucky!

Emerald Ridge High School is a top notch public high school. The teachers, counselor, nurse, secretaries and coaches have all exceeded my expectations in providing for the unique medical and educational needs of my daughter. For the past three years, these hardworking individuals have orchestrated a learning environment that has been sensitive to my daughters particular circumstances. It is amazing to me how every person we have come in contact with truly cares about doing what is necessary to help my daughter succeed. Their professionalism, dedication to their students and their level of mastery of their content area is amazing. These dedicated individuals have prepared my daughter to live her dream of attending a university next year. It would not have happened without the help of all of the people who cared enough to help my daughter succeed. We have been blessed by Emerald Ridge High School. Pam Murphy

Excellent programs and opportunities for the students. Quality coaching staffs. Both of my son's scores on WASL, PSAT, and SATs are well above the norm. This is directly attributed to the teachers at ERHS.
