    Both of my grandchildren went to Cedar Ridge (the last one just leaving for the 6th grade center). They came to Union from a private christian school. I was concerned at first about the change. When I checked out Cedar Ridge I was impressed from the get go. The principal Ellen Crager was awesome. I have found the teachers and staff to be professional and caring. My first concern was unfounded to say the least. I could not be happier with Cedar Ridge. Thanks for what you all have put into my children.

    I could not be happier being a part of the Cedar Ridge family! Ellen Crager is one of the most incredible women I've met. She is so involved and caring and this school is tops! The teachers and staff are always so helpful and wonderful and I love being able to be an active part of the PTA and help out where I can! I highly recommend Cedar Ridge to anyone!

    Mrs. Crager and the teachers at Cedar Ridge are TOPS! Four of my children have spent most of their elementary school years there. When we moved away for one year to Texas and returned to Tulsa we made sure to find a home for our family near Cedar Ridge Elementary School. The teachers truly care and Mrs. Crager is so involved with each child it is hard to comprehend how she does it.

    If you are looking for a wonderful school for your child(ren) look no further....Cedar Ridge Elementary is exactly what you have been looking for. My children were in private school and since being at CR my kids are becoming stronger academically. Mrs. Crager and her staff are truly concerned with each child. When I had a concern about my son I was able to sit down with Mrs. Crager and express my feelings and immediately she offered all the help she could. My son is growing leaps and bounds being under her leadership. She truly cares about every child and takes them under her wing. I love this Principal her staff and this school. A very happy Cedar Ridge parent!!!

    Cedar Ridge is a wonderful facility with a wonderful staff. My two kids were in private school and when my wife and I decided to consider public school we visited CR. The principal Ms Crager was very open to our request and was most accommodating. I don t mind saying we went there with walls up claws out and a list of tough questions. After our visit and discussion every question we came armed with was answered. Our kids have grown significantly in so many positive ways since going to Cedar Ridge. The Principal sets the bar what was so clear is that high expectations existed for not only studies but also ethics and respect not only in her staff but also in the students. Cedar Ridge is an astonishing place and I believe Ms Crager and her staff can take full credit for build this outstanding learning and growing environment.

    I am so unhappy Ellen Crager the principal at Cedar Ridge. I have never seen a principal not put the child's education first and foremost. In general I believe that the Union shcool district is one of the finest however I think they need to take another look at the pricipal at Cedar Ridge. I enrolled my children in a private school because of the principal Ellen Crager.

    Cedar Ridge is truly an amazing school in all areas! The teacher dedication is unbeleivable the lesson plans are always planned to perfection. They are also very in tune with their students as individuals. In the 8 years total that my children have been there we have always felt that our child has had the perfect teacher! Mrs. Crager the principal is the most dedicated administrator I have ever come across. I am always suprised by the fact that she seems to know every student & parent by name & personally. In my position within the PTA I have had the pleasure to work quite a bit with Mrs. Crager & have so enjoyed getting to know her & am daily amazed by her abilities. I can't say enough great things in 150 words you have to experience CRE to know how truly perfect it is!
