    Goodridge has been wonderful for my family for the past 6 years and counting. We have 3 children enrolled & love the staff. Their teachers are attentive to my kids' needs & the front office staff is always prompt and courteous. I never feel unwelcome & there is a lot of extra curricular activities that my kids can choose from.

    I must address the post from Sunday December 8 2013. No one not even a parent can chaperone or participate in class without a background check. It's curious that the poster could list no particular issue save for the question of education. Does the poster think that anyone holding a degree would be willing to serve as a low-paid assistant? I suspect there is little quantifiable evidence of anything remotely deemed "scary" about anyone at Goodridge.

    School and teachers are really available to my daughter and her needs. My daughter did attend a neighboring school and neither one of us liked it. Teachers seemed disinterested fellow classmates was more rude and snobby. The students a goodridge are more freindly.

    As a parent of a special needs child I have much to say on the special needs program. It has been a truly disappointing program for my autistic son. They are totally unequipped to teach my son. I would not trust these people with your special needs child. In the IEP meetings they are telling you what you want to hear. Make sure you are observing the classroom unannounced everyday!

    Goodridge is an amazing school. There are ample opportunities for children to thrive in the classroom as well as in music art and enrichment. It has been my experience that the parents teachers and administration all work hand in hand to make available the highest levels of education and experience for the children.
