I just pulled my daughter out of this school. The academics are a joke. Her K teacher had no personality and the classroom environment was very negative. We are looking into a private academy now. Not a positive start to my daughters schooling yrs.

This school is a joke. The principle is a waste of tax dollars. To get a good teacher you need to prepare early. The make your day program is a lazy administrator s way of not dealing with discipline issues. The state scores are low for a reason and its the administration. Like one of the other reviews said we took the principles advice and moved our kids to another school.
This school seems to be well put together on the outside but looks can be deceiving. We had some concerns on the preparedness of our sons classroom so we went to the principal and our concerns were dismissed. The principal told us that we weren't going to discuss our concerns at all. I found this to be very frustrating and simply rude. I requested a meeting to discuss my concerns and she just didn't want to hear them. I don't want to send my children to a school that doesn't hear my concerns as a parent. This is my sons education and I value it deeply. In addition the curriculum was not up to par for the kindergarten class that our son was in. On the second day of school he was bringing home Sponge bob pictures. I find this very inappropriate! We don't allow our children to watch these kinds of t.v. shows! We surely don't appreciate his teacher allowing him to be exposed to such a vulgar and age inappropriate character. This is misleading to our five year old as he came home and said that his teacher said Sponge bob was "OK" The rating on the show is Y7 very age inappropriate! We are very disappointed in this school and its administration. District needs to find a new principal!
We love Eagle Ridge! The teachers are amazing and I am constantly amazed at how much both our boys are learning. They do a great job of meeting each students individual learning needs. The make your day program is a good way to teach the kids to take responsibility for their actions and time is also spent each day on giving compliments and praises to each other. The "bucket filler" program encourages kind words and deeds to each other. The principal truely cares about each child and is always available to talk to parents with an appointment. We have been very happy with our choice of schools and are thankful to have picked a school where everyone goes above and beyond what is expected.
This school has some excellent teachers and terrible principal.She is not accepting any parent input and i think that this school will be much better place when she finally retire.
This school is in dire need of a good principle. We finally gave up and took the principles advice and moved our children to another school in the district. The discipline program is a joke and no parent input is wanted or accepted. There are some really good teaschers here but the neighborhood is going down and it because of a horrible indifferent administrator
I love Eagle Ridge! Both of my children have gone here and consistently have had top-notch teachers who are hard-working caring and creative. My girls love going to school every day! The principal is very child-centered and genuinely cares for the well being of all the students. Many people complain about the make your day program but besides taking up a small amount of class time it teaches the children responsibility and how to resolve problems.
My son is in Kindergarten at this school. His teacher is awesome and he has learned a lot but they really need to work on their make your day program and not hold the kindergarteners to the same standards as 6th graders. Also the yard duties don't seem to be doing their job. I see a lot of kids getting hit or picked on which goes unnoticed but when that kid defends himself he gets sent to the office and the PTA doesn't seem to be doing a good job how they be effective if they only meet once every 4 or 5 months? Maybe once they get rid of the head of the PTA things will be run better.
Very good school. Teachers are excellent. My grandson has learned so much in 4 years I am always impressed by how much they know at his grade level.
My daughters have been attending this school for five years now. Overall I have been happy with the staff and have not had very much interaction with the principal. I would like to see more community involvement and less focus on the Make your Day program.(My children have always made their day) I just think to much time is spent on this program. Is it necessary to do it every hour???
I've had two generations of children go to Eagle Ridge elementary school and I have been very pleased with the administration and the staff. Thank you Roger Dillman
I love Eagle Ridge! Both the teachers and the principle have gone out of their way to help make my children's educational experience the best that it can be! My children will be here for many years to come!
ER Rocks! I am the parent of a disruptive honor student. Mrs P and every teacher has gone way above an beyond every expectation I ever had. Yes there have been problems and disagreements and I havent gotten my way every time but I am listened too and found an environment where the school and parents work toward a common goal. Eagle Ridge you are awesome!
My granddaughter has been attending EagleRidge since Kindergarten and she is now in 2nd grade. I think the teachers are doing a great job and the help in the cafeteria and office answer all my questions and make my feel welcome. Pat
I am so impressed with Eagle Ridge Elementary. Their kindergarten is wonderful. I am very pleased at the level of attention and instruction my son receives. The class stresses personal responsibility making good choices and a formal self-evaluation system ('Making Your Day'). These concepts so vital to children's success in later grades. In addition there are arts music computer and PE classes for my son to enjoy. There is a full time nurse and a full time social worker on staff - Very impressive. I know this is not the case at every school. We requested a voucher to send my son out of district and I am so glad we did. I highly recommend this school.
My son has attended the last 3 years beginning with Kindergarten. I am not impressed with the 'Make Your Day' program. Way too much time spent on 'points' and 'concerns' rather than focusing on class. Mascot program is super! My son loves it.
Absolutely fantastic school great teachers.
Nice school. Not happy with the make your day program /very little community involvement.
My Son has been attending Eagle Ridge for 3 years. This has been a wonderful experience for the entire family. My son has grown and matured so much. I have recieved a lot of communication from the teachers and have been kept abreast of the progress that my son has been making. I have only had positive experiences at Eagle Ridge. I do choose to supplement the education at home. My son and I read together and I give him additional homework daily. I have coordinated this with his teacher so I know what they are learning that week and can support that at home.
Eagle Ridge gave my son a great early start to his academic success. His kindergarten and first grade teachers were very focused on reading and comprehension and math/problem solving skills. He was at the top of his class. But we were not very impressed with his second grade experience. More time was spent on discipline and there was not enough emphasis on academics as his previous years. I feel that this past year has caused my son's progress to falter and more could have been done to keep the kids on track.
