    Best Elementary School ever. The Principal Ms Nostrame is amazing and so very caring. From the school nurse to the lunch aides and the custodians they all care! We have had 3 kids go through this school starting in 1999 and our last is in 4th grade now and we will all miss this amazing school! Excellent PTO and Awesome Cub Scout program!

    Ridge Ranch is a blue ribbon school. Grades k-4 attend. The principal is great. Parent involvement is a part of every day. Whether a class mom or helping in the library or going on class trips parents see their child in action. All of Paramus schools are fantastic. The education received here is a great start for a great future.
