    This school was pretty good. I just graduated from the school this year and I have to tell you this school has a lot to offer. They have excellent extracurricular actives and great core classes. For the most part the teachers were great but there are always those few teacher that aren't so great. I wouldn't recommend students who are lazy or can't take challenges to go this school. The teachers demand a lot out of their student and the workload can be a lot but the outcomes are outstanding. Over all this school is just amazing but has a few flaws but what school doesn't?

    This is the BEST school. I graduated from it in 2012! This place made me actually LOVE school! I am not a nerd it's just that the teachers were sort if laid back and taught yet they let us chill or do what we wanted as long as we payed attention. Except for the uniforms it was amazing. The drama class is the best the teacher let us have basically recess in that class and we can do skits based on whatever we wanted. The Home Ec teacher was the best too there was a full sized kitchen. I took those classes. The students there are the best I was sort of popular there like I had many friends and I wish I could come back. I've made some friends for life there. It can turn a socially awkward kid that I used to be into having lots of friends and enjoying the 3 years if middle school. The education is okay for me. I have so many good memories at that school.

    My son is just about to finish his first year at IRMS (2013-2013). I have read the Great Schools Reviews and after my experiance at IRMS which includes listening to my son following his grades corresponding with his teachers enteracting with office staff participating as a chaperone and volunteering as an FCAT proctor ... I have nothing but great things to say about the entire school and all of the Staff. I would highly recommend Indian Ridge Middle School and would tell the school to keep up the great work.

    This school is terrible in so many ways! My daughter was beat up by a boy 2 yrs ago and he never even so much as received a detention for it! Now she is threatened by a group of girls. The same principal as with the previous event is still in charge of her grade & I know he will do nothing until she gets beat up again if at all or worse she'll be suspended with them! All this and she has had teachers that sit on their ipads with out-of-control classrooms. They surf the web & shop at victoria secret during class! Her language arts teacher is frustrated that many in her class learned nothing from the teacher last year. This year her science teacher is the same waste of time. Who do you tell? They all have tenure so no one cares! If it weren't for parents and a few great teachers the students would be lost. I've had my daughter tutored throughout middle school.

    This school has an excellent gifted program. Students' core classes are taught by gifted certified teachers that teach critical thinking skills on a very high level. One of our sons transferred from a reputable local private school to Indian Ridge in seventh grade and his latter experience at IR exceeded his private school experience both academically and socially. Now our younger son is in the IR gifted program and he is also having an wonderful enriching experience. The teachers treat the students respectfully and intelligently; preparing them for AP/honors high school classes. I also want to add that IR has an exceptional GEM program. ("Great Explorations in Math.") Again there is no need to send your child to private school if your child is bright and you are zoned for IR. Take the $60 000 you would have spent and invest it in the college fund.

    HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE! I just got off the phone with Indian Ridge Middle School (Davie- Florida)...beyond horrible experience like always. The staff is always rude and not helpful. They seem very aggravated by any phone call or question that a parent or student may have. I do not recommend this school to anyone. I don't really understand why they think they are such a good school. They are NOT!

    When I First Came To This School From Another School I was Mad But Now Im Happy I Did The School Is good Good Teachers A Great Staff Menbe. If a kid says hey are aving problems at the school then they lack social skills because with the teachers we have pushing us to be our best.. its imposible to fail.

    I'm a 6th grader. I love this school so much! This school has a rating of nine out of ten because most of the students in this school pass the FCAT. What the previous review said is totally false. I mean how could the teachers be careless if at the end most students pass?Right now I'm almost a seventh grader. My FCAT scores are a high five for math(I got only one wrong) and a three for reading. If you want me to be honest I SUCK at reading. But even with that I didn't fail. I love all of my teachers. They are awesome. They do everything they can the only thing that your child needs to be is not lazy. I mean I came to this school with barely knowing any English and guess what? My final report card is all straight As with a perfect GPA of 4.0 . A student might be smart but if he or she is lazy the student has no chance. So if I a girl that came from Israel just almost two years ago ended the year with straight As perfect GPA a "honoring certificate" in math and got accepted to all honor clubs your child can do it for sure. About friends it all depends on the person. Let's just say that me and one girl started out with arch enemies now we are best friends.

    I really don't understand why this school has a 9 rating. I agree with the previous review. Most of the teachers ARE horrible and uncaring. I currently have two students there. One is graduating and fortunately we are moving so the other will be transferring to another school. Also my kids are smart kids otherwise their grades would be horrible due to lack of proper education. I can only say good things about maybe a couple the teachers. The students are a different issue. It has been really difficult for my kids to find good friends in the school. There are rising drug and promiscuity problems I really wish they would address.

    this school is really awesome! wuld reccomend this school to anyone

    I went to this school for just one year and it was 8th grade and I think this school is really good I loved how every teacher trully pushed every student to their limit and always were making us give our best. Honestly I would recomend this school to anyone and about the FCAT every school in the state of florida focuses too much on the FCAT and thats not the schools fault but the states and the government fault. I think that there are clicks like in every other school and kids are not nasty unless you let them be nasty to you. Maybe if somebody doesnt stand up to them thats why kids arent friendly.

  • (4 years ago)

    This school is okay the academics is probably good as you can get in South Florida.The school feels more like a military camp.Everyone have clicks and the kids are not that friendly.I pulled my daughter out this year and we are now moving out of state.I feel the state focus too much on the FCAT and not enough on every subject.

    I'm currently a stedent in IRMS and I believe that it is one of the best schools I have ever been to. Sixth grade was a bit rough and there was some rude and nasty teachers then. My team had this one teacher who was disorganized and did not teach us what we were supposed to learn but that situation was taken care of when I went into the seventh grade. Everything was quite pleasant and I had great teachers who always helped you out so you could pass with flying colors. I'm now going into the eigth grade and I cannot wait to start learning again.

    My wife and I love this Indian Ridge. My son is currently attending and he enjoys going to classes I know my son is receiving an excellent education. The Principal teachers staff and volunteers are some of the most caring and attentive people I have ever met. I highly recommend this school to new parents in the area.

    Coming to Indian Ridge over 12 years ago was like dying and going to heaven. Most students were polite and courteous. Staff was profession and enthusiastic about education. Principal believed in strong discipline. A dream school.

    this school is a very good school. When I started Indain Ridge I hated it. This school is very safe but sometimes there are physical fights. There are a couple negatives. The school always complains about the money. Also the school is very strict. Some of the teachers need to lay off the work. Also I didn't like 6th grade. It's stupid because everyone hate's 6th graders. If a eight grader or seventh grader passes a sixth grader they would make fun of them. It's really retarded. Also the uniforms. It gets really annoying. If you get in trouble you get IBM. IBM is like hell. Overall it's ok school.
