    They are all a great staff that takes Very Good interest in all their students.!! We moved here from another state where my daughter was struggling and wasn't getting the help needed. I am very impressed how she was tested and got the opportinity too receive the help where it's needed and still continuning through the years ahead. What a HUGE difference it's made and has really boosted her self esteem & confidence. I can't say enough about the teachers they do so much for their students & need a High Honor for each & everyone of them. The staff also takes a great care for the students. When your child comes home & tells you what happened you know she's learning what a great feeling as a parent. I was told in the beginning that Sunset Ridge is a Terrific School Distrit & that has been proven above and beyond.

    We recently moved from the area and what a wonderful change ! Growing up on the north shore and sending my kids to schools in the area I thought would be a good thing. The competition is UNREAl- both in sports and in the classes! Now I have kids that are happy and calm !!

    I'm a former Sunset Ridger and I'm currently at New Trier. I'm writing this review because I feel that Sunset Ridge school was a great school for me! I made so many friends their and love the teachers.. I feel so welcome every time I visit and the teachers are wonderful. As far as the quality of the academic programs I especially liked science and Spanish. In science I learned the most we did so many hands on activities which made it so enjoyable and I was so intrigued with everything we learned. For Spanish I had Ms. Ricotta a couple years ago and she was so patient and really cared about what she was teaching about. I'm thinking about going to Argentina for a year abroad because of the enthusiasm I had for it while in Sunset Ridge. And I will never forget DR. B the most caring principal ever!
