    Ridgewood is a great school lead by a wonderful and extremely caring principal. She knows each individual kid not only by name but academically as well. The kids love her. Great teachers and atmosphere are also a plus at this school. Parent involvement extremely high and encouraged at Ridgewood which is in my opinion so important for teachers and kids alike.

    Ridgewood is a great school! My daughter is in first grade and is already reading on a third grade reading level. Her teachers have made her love learning and I think that is the key to success.

    Ridgewood Elem is an excellent school.The teachers are very helpful and are great with the students. They have a good music program for that age group and also the physical education program. The teachers try & keep the parents involved in everything. They have mandatory parent teacher conferences every few months so that they can make sure that you do know how your child is doing & what she needs to improve on which I think is excellent.
