Then the teacher would constantly ...  Read more

This school would be much better off with a new administration, beginning with the Principal. Anyone who has come in contact with her, would understand! CMS and the Southwest Zone really need to open their eyes and make changes.

This is one of the most talented groups of educators any of my children have had. I have been at Polo Ridge since the beginning and have nothing but positive things to say about all my interactions within the school.
