    I think Blue Ridge is an excellent school. I went there as a child and now my child goes there. The teachers are caring and my child is excelling. I think Patrick County is a great place to live and I would recommend this school to any parents wanting a great education for their child or children.

    I think this is a wonderful school. I went to Blue Ridge elementary when i was a little girl. So i love the fact that my children get the opportunity to do the same. The faculty is terriffic. the after school activities are also incredible. need more parent involvement though. The only problem i have is we need more principals like Mr. Fred Brim not this Carolyn Deekens. not to fond of the way she handle school problems and disipline at all. thanks so much. keep up the good work.
