    I like the staff at the school very friendly and concerned for my daughter. She is in third grade and has to pass the crct test this year. The school offers tutoring two days a week and plus on saturday. Her teacher and I exchanged cell numbers and ahe takes my calls after school is over.

    I would rate Blue Ridge Elem a 10! I am there voluntering several days a week. I have never seen teachers who work so hard.The teachers have so much put on them that I honestly dont know how they do it and theycare so much about their students. I have a 4th grader and he loves it there and feels loved every day.
