We have been very happy at this school! The teachers are passionate and committed professionals and the parent community is very involved.

I find that this school maintains a separate and unequal environment. There are spectrum and non-spectrum classrooms and all the love, resources and care goes to spectrum. By 5th grade, the message to non-spectrum kids is that they are "bad" kids who are not very good at school. Set a low expectation and get bad results. Parents are cliquish and it's just too big. Sorry that Seattle Public Schools won't step up and provide quality education for all children. That this school is a 10 is a joke. A big, overcrowded one.

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!
