As a parent and a teacher, I have had the pleasure of educating children at this school for over 6 years. My two children are a part of both the gifted and regular education program. Ridgecrest has a great sense of unity and the community truly comes together for all children.

Many of the reviews I read on this school are older. Our son is in the gifted program here. We transferred him from a charter school three weeks into 1st grade. An extremely difficult decision...we made the right one. He is engaged, challenged, and has probably learned more in the two months he has ...  Read more
