39 Parent Reviews for Sandy Ridge Elementary School

The current principal started last year, which was our first year. I question a few things she has done. Because the school is growing, she decided to pull children out of their class four full months into the school year last year to reduce class sizes ( just as these children got settled they get ...  Read more

My son attended this school in first grade and literally had nightmares about it for over a year after we pulled him out. I now live in another state and when I tell people here what we went through jaws drop. It is hard to even express the level of disrespect, the lack of professionalism and the degree ...  Read more

This is our second year at Sandy Ridge and Union County Public Schools. Prior to that we were in Mecklenburg County and then the last 7 years in Collier County FL.

I love ...  Read more

My children have been happy at Sandy Ridge. Neither has had any issues with the school being too strict. As far as pulling "cards" - even my perfectionist child does not find this system to be a problem, since they get to start over daily (enforcement varies greatly by teacher as is typical in most schools.). ...  Read more

Sandy Ridge Elementary is indeed strict--it is not a country club. There are high expectations for learning here. This place is a blue ribbon school for a reason! My child enjoys going to school each day, and yep--he gets card pulls. It's all how parents address these tickets at home that can either ...  Read more

My daughter was at this school a few years ago. when it first opened it was the greatest year my daughter has ever had. by the time she was about to graduate, the school was like a military compound. I agree with the person bellow me. no free expression aloud. ridiculous. no reason for it. these were ...  Read more

People always make the mistake of thinking a school is itself good or bad. the 10 schools are excellent because of the children that go there. airlift the school into downtown charlotte and lets see the test scores. that being said, this is not the school for open, free spirited children. don't think ...  Read more
