I'm not sure what some of the posters expect about racial diversity from this school. They cannot help who does and does not live in their school district.

Deer Ridge is the best. Great teachers and great students. This is a high achieving school. People who jsut send their kid to scholl and don't participate will find it hard to fit in as parents are very active.

My four children all have attended, or, in the case of my youngest, will attend Deer Ridge Elementary. I have a child who is classified as gifted, and one who has special educational needs, and the Deer Ridge faculty and staff have been able to meet the needs of both on either end of the academic spectrum. ...  Read more
