This school is outstanding! My son is in preschool here with an IEP plan and the teachers are so amazing and wonderful. My son looks forward to going to school. Also I want to note their bus drivers are great too our past school had some scary bus drivers but they are all "normal" here. We are so grateful for this school!!

I have 3 children at Fox Ridge and have loved every minute of it. The teachers and Principal are outstanding and the curriculum is superior. We did a ton of research when selecting a home in a great school district and we sure found the best!!!
I was very surprised to see a negative comment about the principal as I have found her to be extremely kid-friendly and actively participating in meetings with parents and teachers. One of my kids has been through Fox Ridge and one has a year left. It is a great place for the kids to learn and the environment is excellent.
I had 3 children go through Fox Ridge. It was a wonderful experience not only for them but for me as well. The Staff students and parents work together to make Fox Ridge a family.
I have two students in the school and have been very pleased with every aspect of the school. They have amazing teachers a great principal and a very involved PTO! We love Fox Ridge!
I've had 2 children go through Fox Ridge. It is a great school with friendly experienced teachers. Very challenging curriculum and helpful teachers. Loved every minute of our experience!
Strong school community with teachers and staff who are focused on student learning. PTO offers many events and opportunities to volunteer during the school year. Parent involvement is expected and encouraged. Caring and supportive staff. Great school!
After attending a couple of other schools in other states we find this school extremely "unwelcoming" and "cold". We visited the school twice before moving into our home that we already had purchased and never once did the principal introduce herself nor was her assistant very friendly. The assistant reluctantly gave us a quick tour of the building. You do not meet the teachers at open house (besides K-1) which we found odd. Our kids were never helped out much they pretty much had to fumble through the daily routine and figure out how this school does things etc. etc. The "lunch moms" are not very friendly. Overall it is not a friendly welcoming environment.
The special services team are caring encouraging and concerned. The teachers are knowledgable firm but loving. The school participates in the district-wide orchestra program for 3rd through 5th graders. They love it! AND - there's February...when the after-school mini-classes take place. Kids can learn sewing cooking tae kwon do mini-golf all kinds of things!
