    I love this school for my child so much that I have out-of-zoned him to go there. The principal is very understanding and listens when you have a problem or concern. I haven't been pleased with every teacher but I do think they all really care about helping the kids learn. I don't want to send him anywhere else. I just wish they had a summer program.

    My daughter attends this school and test's high and has great report card's. Her teacher's take the time and commit to making the children learn and they keep the parent's informed of all that goes on. When I send her to school I know that she is learning being taken care of very well and is safe. What else could a parent ask for?

    I have a daughter attending this school. I am very impressed with her 2nd Grade teacher.(Mrs. Bratten)This school also has a new math program ( I think for all 2nd-6th grade students ) that is great!

    I have had 3 children go through Clyde Riggs and I think highly of this school. Although their lunches could use quite a bit of work but that is the worse thing I can say about them. I have only had problems with one teacher there whom is gone now so I am very happy my kids go to this school!
