    We love Ranch View! We were reassigned to the school last year after district boundary changes and could not be more pleased. Warm welcoming teachers and staff. I know my children are receiving an A+ education at Ranch View.

    Great School having phenomenal teachers. Our younger son has done phenomenally under his current teacher who has gone beyond academics and has instilled real life lessons and responsibility into him.

    I have a 'special' daughter who attends Ranch View. It is truly a wonderful place! I feel at ease sending my daughter to a school where the teachers are not only academically knowledgeble but warm and caring. I have also been able to visit the other naperville 203 elementary schools and find Ranch View to be the best!

    We have moved around quite a bit and I have to say that Ranch View was the best school experience we ever had! The principal and the teachers are professional and caring and really do their best to meet the needs of each student. I would recommend Ranch view as one of the best schools in the U.S.

    I just think the Ranch View Special Education program is wonderful! My son has made leaps and bounds of improvement in the 3+ years he's been at Ranch View. The teachers are wonderful the principal is terrific. Everybody really cares about the kids. The special ed programs are wonderful for whatever degree of disability your child has. My son thankfully is able to be mainstreamed for many of his classes and everybody is just wonderful to him in both groups. I recently had the opportunity to move out of Illinois for financial reasons or stay in Naperville and I chose to remain in the Naperville School District for my son whose made so much improvement that I'm afraid to place him in any other school for fear he will not do as well or even regretably lose some of what he's learned. Thank you Ranch View for everything.

    This is a follow-up concerning the before school care. The Naperville community has abundant before and after-school care. There is a pamphlet at the local bookstore for $5.00 that lists many child care providers. Many of the private schools have before and after-school care with transportation. It is very affordable. I am very pleased with the school and their wholistic approach to elementary education. Naperville is also a great community.

    I am a former student of Ranch View and I am now in eighth grade. My favorite parts were writing books and band. Ranch View has a program where kids can write their own books and it'll get typed up and the kid will be given a title page in which he/she can draw a cover and then the book will be put in the LRC for other kids to read. Ranch View has an awesome band program. I decided to play clarinet in 4th grade and now I'm one of the highest clarinetists of my junior high. All the teachers are great they were kind fun gentle and caring. I used to cry all the time in first grade and my teacher was always there to comfort me. I learned a ton and had a great time doing it. Ranch View is a great elementary school.
