Copper Ridge has always been a good school. Since Michelle Otstot became the principal last year, it is now a GREAT school! I have never seen and admin team with as much enthusiasm, dedication and love for their students. Mrs. Otstot, Mrs. Defeyter and Mr. Patzlaff (yes we have three administrators), ...  Read more

My child has been at this school for 5 years and it's rapidly declining. It is true that if you have a full time job, there's no way to attend PTO meetings or other meetings. This school is in an affluent area and it caters to parents with the most money. If you donate $10k you can have your own parking ...  Read more

PTA is a joke unless you don't have a full time job...The principal is greatly lacking in common sense and just plain getting along with others. My son has gone here for 4 years now and it's greatly declining. You can get your own parking space if you donate lots of money which also means if you go ...  Read more

This school does not in any way feel like a community. The children run down the halls nosiy and disorderly. Teachers are yelling for them to quiet down and behave. In the classrooms the children are disrepectful to adults and to each other. The lunch room and playground are bully central. The teachers ...  Read more
