    My child goes to half day kg here and at first I was very skeptical. But in just 2 months she's starting to read a little. The teacher ms Petzel is a very good teacher. I do notice the principal is very involved than most other principals. This year they are really trying hard to turn the school around with attendance students success. Parents need to get involved more in the child's acedemically. That what's makes the diff between an excellent student and an average or below average student.

    Our children just finished Kindergarten 2012-2013. Yes it was half day kindergarten 2.5hrs only. We were skeptical as to how much they would learn. They learn more than they can tell you! 3 field trips had catipillars turn into butterflies! This school year they are offering full day mainstream kindergarten. Mr. Seigalak does a good job with the tools he has been given to lead this school. This is a friendly school where all walks of life co-exist very well. As with anything in life it's also about what the parents put into their children's education at home. Everything in life starts at home! Parent involvement could be better but it might be more cultural than anything. It's a good home town school.

    I am glad that I can actually say that I'm happy with the way things are being ran in this school this year so far.Unlike last year the school was terrible the old principal was not a good one she did not do her job at all some of the teachers were doing a great job and the office staff were friendly.I had three children attend there for a few years and did not like the old principal the new principal at Ridge is doing an excellent job so far and I noticed the change in the school within a month that goes to show that he is working hard to make this school a good one he does not only worry about behavior but academics as well I really love that keep up the good work to all who try to make Ridge Circle an excellent school for my children and others thank you.

    I think that the teachers are very involved and caring. They have high expectations but realize each child is unique in their learning requirements.

    I used to teach at Ridge Circle. The student were so much fun to be around and learn with. Each child had their own personality that made the school unique. The teachers are among the most dedicated I EVER worked with. I was proud to be a part of the staff.

    We really miss Mr. Lueck he was a constant presence in the school and all the children knew him. Ridge Circle has some wonderful teachers! Mr. Guyon and Mr. P are the greatest.

    Too many resorces are alloted to the bi-lingual needs of children in this school. It shouldn't really be considered bi-lingual beacuse English it seems is not required. The parents of these children chose not to learn the English language so how are their children suppose to learn. The answer is why should they learn when we cater to their language instead of English. When picking up my child from school the English language is hardly ever heard.

    I'm hoping that this year with a new and hopefully better principal things will improve for students at Ridge Circle School.

    I have been a parent at Ridge Circle for 5 years. I am very pleased with my child's progress. I only wish more parents would take an active role in this school. We have a very dedicated staff and principal. I have nothing bad to say about this school.

    Ms. Conroy is an excellent teacher. I believe that Ridge Circle could be an excellent school with the right leader.
