We have two children at this school. Both have had okay experiences, fine teaching and are happy enough. This is a large, somewhat impersonal school with a commitment to kids. I have never met the principal--although I have written and called--the office staff won't let me though. I have no sense of the teaching beliefs or strategies used and there is very little to no communication from the school. You hear a lot from the PTA, but not much else. Personally, I would prefer a more inquiry-centered, community-centered, inclusive setting, but this is our neighborhood school and it's working.
View Ridge Elementary School has been a very good experience for children. The Principal is very involved and maintains an excellent teaching staff.
We have a first grader and soon to be kindergartner (next year). We are very happy with our decision to send our kids to public school and not private schools we looked at.
This is a fantastic school with extremely dedicated team of educators. I went there as a child and now my own child will be attending. The teachers all deserve national recognition!
A good neighborhood school. The education is acceptable to good depending on the teachers. There are many extracurricular activites but we went for private instructions for in-depth work. Parents are involved at school at different levels and always around. It's considered a overall good school in seattle.
View Ridge is a wonderful school with a great staff and very involved principal. The academics are very strong and are supplemented by enrichment specialists in art, music, pe and library. They have wonderful chess, choir and instrument music programs and have a variety of after school programs. Parent involvement is extremely high and students make many friends within this school! The Principal is very involved and knows each child. Highly recommend this school!
