    This is a great school if you are Asian or Caucasian. If you are not this is NOT a great school. These teachers and child care workers could not care less to inform me as a parent that my 5 year old with a history of heart disease was sick. This was totally irresponsible. Reason no one was paying attention to her. They claimed she did not tell them that she was ill and she clearly says she did.

    Sycamore Ridge is an amazing school with the best principal teachers and staff. It's academics are top notch and the school has a multitude of resources to accommodate any student and his/her needs. The Sycamore Stallion students exhibit the Six Pillars of Character Respect Fairness Caring Citizenship Responsibility and Trustworthiness and the school environment is a safe and fun place for all. In addition parent involvement and volunteerism is extremely high. I highly recommend Sycamore Ridge Elementary School and am very proud that my children are students in the school.

    Sycamore Ridge School has created a fun and safe environment for my child. The best part about the school is the faculty. The teachers are phenomenal! The teachers are in control of their classes and they seem to always have a great solution for resolving any situation that may come up. The principal shows her enthusiasm and dedication. She gets to know her students. As a whole the program is run very smoothly. Most of all - my child is very happy there. He does not complain about not wanting to go to school. He gets up every morning ready to start his day.

    I have 2 girls here. One is a 6th grader and one is a preschooler. My 6th grader is in the band and receives 2 hours a week of band practice. The teachers are wonderful!

    2nd year school in a highly regarded school district. Things are starting to shape up (both the academics and the extracurricular programs) and principal is very present. It also houses a district preschool program for the children with special needs.
