    South Ripley Elementary has been a leader in education for over a decade. The staff and administration are dedicated to the success of each child. Principal Collier and Asst. Principal Linkel are top notch administrators and the staff a great to work with on any task.

    My daughter is going into the 5th grade this school year (2009-2010). She is a special needs child. I have found that with the teachers she has had both with specail ed and in her mainstream class have been very helpful in meeting my daughters special needs. I don't think that she would be doing as well as she is if it weren't for the teachers and principle. Thank you all for your support and help with my daughter.

    My daughter is a fourth grader at this school. She's attended SRES K-4 and I am very disappointed in the teaching at this school. Kindergarden was fine but it went down hill after that. My daughter has ADD and I do not feel that this school is very good with helping her to get to where she needs to be they just keep passing her on by the skin of her teeth and that will never get her anywhere! She finely this year had some testing done to see if she has a learning disability. But I thank it is a little late for that she is already in the fourth grade I feel they should of tried to help her out sooner! I also do not care for the Principal and I don't feel that he does a very good job at all!

    After working as a teacher's aide in the school system for about 5 years I realize what a warm and happy place it is. They try to keep on top of things and yet are down to earth and kind. They want good students with good values morals and high hopes for a bright future. I'm glad they have supported and recommended my preschool (

    My daughter is a fifth grader at this school. She's attended SRES K-5 and I feel very blessed to have had her enrolled in this school. She's had wonderful teachers who've really worked at challenging her to be her best! I'm very appreciative of all the hard dedicated work all staff members have devoted to my daughter. I would highly recommend this school.
