15 Parent Reviews for Forest Ridge Academy

We put an incredible amount of thought into choosing the right school for our 3 year old daughter. Our first choice was the Univ. of Chicago Lab School. But with only a 30% acceptance rate and us having to affiliation with the school, that was not to be. We looked at many local catholic schools, and ...  Read more

We have just enrolled our child into the Young Scholars program at FRA. I cannot believe the motivation and excitement that the teachers have. After day 2 my 3 year old came home saying Spanish words and actually knew what they meant. The Instagram photos posted help make us just as excited as my daughter ...  Read more

I can not say enough about this school. I am not a contributor as stated below. My kids have had incredible success there and in high school as measured by the preparation FRA gave for high school. Mine are not babied. They are held accountable. This school is fantastic! Please start the high ...  Read more

The Teachers at Forest Ridge are amazing. They work one on one with the students and go above and beyond what is required for a teacher. Many parents who believe the children are babied need to understand most of the students at Forest Ridge are doing work above their grade level. Some students have ...  Read more

I would agree that there is a double standard when it comes to grades. Students who have parents who are big donors are allowed to turn in work late and get higher grades.

The small classes, high standards, and caring faculty provide a safe and positive learning atmosphere. The academics are exciting and my children are loving the journey!!!!

I completely disagree with the post from January 24. My children have received an excellent education through all grades at Forest Ridge. Teachers have been completely honest with me regarding my children's progress and I have had no surprises! My children are not superior intellectually and the teachers ...  Read more

My daughter attended FRA a few years ago. Although, my daughter received high markings, I feel it was only because of the extra help she received outside of school. They rarely give low grades, even if deserved, which may help the child's self esteem but does not accurately measure where they are at ...  Read more
