    . If your student doest have particular teachers they do not recieve the same education. I Read the following review and could not agree more with it. Poor Principal and counselor. Do not expect your issues to be solved. Prepare to be dissapointed. Several families in my neighborhood withdrew after experiencing similar situations. It is unfortunate that schools only teach advanced material to a select few classes. My childs teacher would not take the time or energy to utilize the science lab although it was right outside her door. The Principal stated that she did not require her to use it. My child watched as the 2 advanced classes used the science lab every week. Oh and also if soduko puzzles were on the exit math exam I am sure he would have passed with flying colors. Horrible experience with a team of people who look the other way and cover for each other

    The Counselor is terrible and has poor educational training w/r to understanding child stage of developmental. It is run like a concentration camp with excessive dicipline and militarism. High degree of control and little respect for innovation in children. The Principal would do well to run for mayor. Way too political for every day reality and respect for parents. The PTA is nuts and sends home commercial advertisments and sales nearly every day. A number of the teachers are narcissistic; teach to the TEKS so students do well not for educational and intellectual content. They have succeded in turning the children into robots. The staff lacks a sense of reality and is realy isolated in many ways. Some teachers do not leave their egos at the door and focus on the children rather than themselves. High degree of parent involvement competing with each other to see who is superior.

    Both my kids attended Ride Elementary under two pricipals and multiple teachers over a total of ten years. We LOVE Ride Elementary and will miss the wonderful teaching and office staff not to mention the marvelous pricipals that have run this great school. Thanks to both Cindy Johnston and Megan Burnham!

    Sally K Ride Elementary is the ONLY elementary school in all of The Woodlands that is a National Blue Ribbon Winner! Our school disctrict Conroe Independent School District (CISD) is one of five (5) 'recognized' school districts in Texas and SKR has the most committed professional kind principal Cindy Johnston and her staff is dedicated to making sure all of the children who attend K-4 are safe informed enlightened and challenged intellectually phyically artistically and they are building good characters one child at a time! We love SKRide!

    My children had great teachers and got a great education there. I enjoyed working there for years with incredible co-workers.

    We just moved from TX to CA. One of the things that we miss is this school. We had 4 children in the school from K-3. A couple of the kids had special needs. This school was so much more helpful than what we currently are experiencing. The school staff from the principal down were so much more involved in wanting our kids to succeed. The would probably not be this far along and performing at their grade level if not for this school.

    We had an OK experience at Ride. I think that there are better schools in CISD.

    My daughter loves to go to school. She enjoys her class and her teacher. She has learned so much in just her firt semester. She is already reading she is in Kindergarden. Information has been easy for me to get and I have had plenty of opportunities to volunteer. I feel safe with my daughter at school. I think it is a great school!

    The level of parent involvement is extraordinary. Extracurricular activites are generally good although I think it is unfortunate that there are no classes in Spanish. It has been our experience that the quality of the education received depends upon the experience/tenure of the student's teacher.
