I visited Ridgecrest today as it is the assigned school for our neighborhood. I was able to meet with the principal and she gave me a tour of the school.

Don't consider this school for your child. I wish I had read these reviews before considering this school. Thankfully, I have my daughter in another school. Zero relation with parents. Close this school or change the entire staff- beginning with principal.

The school is not a place to send your child - the principal, and teachers are not supportive. Find another school for your child.

In the past 2 years Ridegecrest has let the subpar teachers go, so the faculty is hardly recognizable anymore. All teachers are now highly qualified and there is a new principal. Time will tell how the change affects school scores, but it is a step in the right direction.

Although I have been associated with this school for many years, I am increasingly dissappointed with the school. The principal was trying but the past few years they have had a series of vice-principals and the lastest one is abysmal and unfair to students and teachers alike. There are no extracurricular ...  Read more
