The problems with this school as with all schools in Ballantyne are not within the schools' control. It is overcrowded...largely in part to its excellent reputation. CMS needs to hear from the voters in this area that we are not going to take it anymore. Let your voice be heard at the state level ...  Read more

Polo Ridge is an amazing school. The school culture is very positive. The PTA and the principal work collaboratively to create the best learning environment for ALL students. Students thrive in that environment.

He has multiple severe food allergies, and she was instrumental ...  Read more

The school is not terrible, but it is hampered like all CMS schools, in that it is goal oriented to score high on EOG's. Common Core Curriculum is setting up our kids to fail. It's measurement metrics do not test these kids fairly. I don't like it and I hope it goes away. What was so wrong with ...  Read more
