I am a dad of a thrid grader at South. I'm not a teacher, I don't know much about how this whole nonsense about testing works and I certainly don't claim to understand the fight between the union and the school board. I honestly don't care about that. What I care about is my son and the education ...  Read more

My son has been at South Ridge for 4 years now and he LOVES it! I've had nothing but a great experience with South, despite many of it's negative reviews. My son was identified early as an advanced learner and the teachers have done everything within their power to challenge him. My e-mails are always ...  Read more

The submission regarding fighting on the playground is completely absurd. I drive by the school a few times each day and I have never seen anything other than play from the students. I have been volunteering on a regular basis at the school for 4 years and have yet to see any arguments let alone fights ...  Read more

I spend a ton of time volunteering at SR and have gotten to know the inner-workings of this school with a unique perspective. The review below is shocking to me. I know that the aids are on the playground the entire time, ...  Read more

They have provided one on one tutoring everyday in 1st and 2nd grade with a literary specialist. I have even hired the teacher to come and tutor at my house. The staff ...  Read more

I stopped by mid day to drop off something for my son. I was devastated when I saw what was happening at recess. I saw several children fighting in the kindergarten class, literally punching each other, kicking, pushing each other down on the ground. As much as I yelled over the chain link fence for ...  Read more

I was concerned about sending my kids to South Ridge because of the low test scores, and the horrible school website- the look is so outdated, and the information doesn't seem to be consistently current. The website is awkward and ugly. I worried they wouldn't be using or teaching with much technology. ...  Read more

I have gone to South since Kindergarden. I have enjoyed watching South grow and become an IB school. I have been able to grow and learn at my own pace. I love the teachers and their teaching styles. I have had the ability to be in all the highest groups since 2nd grade. I have really enjoyed South's ...  Read more
