23 Parent Reviews for Ridge And Valley Charter School

We have two children in the school and they're doing really well. We're really pleased with the emphasis on experiential education and consistent integration of core subjects with earth literacy. I find it really impressive that they go by what is developmentally appropriate, not always what is "standard". ...  Read more

There are some misconceptions in the recent critiques. First off, having staff leave is neither (a) unusual nor (b) due to a failure of the school. There have been years where all teachers stayed, and years of overturn. Several teachers are leaving this year for perfectly mundane reasons - one moved ...  Read more

The leader of the Child Study Team has left. She did a great job with limited resources and without support from the other three admin leaders. The child psychologist that remains is a friend of one of the teachers. She has misdiagnosed several children that I know of and has filed dubious reports ...  Read more

RVCS is more of a drop off care/ camp. This school is behind of surrounding schools, which is why again they are on probation. The trustees which is similar to a Board of Education never posts or release minutes publicly. While parents are invited to attend if you can't make it well then your out of ...  Read more

We have two girls, grades K and 3. Our doughters love school and are at a higher math and reading level than their public school friends. Small class size means that the teachers actually have time to care for our children. I see negative reviews on sites like this and suspect tenured teachers afraid ...  Read more

We have two children at RVCS. They are learning amazing things! The school's staff is talented in the classroom and in the outdoor environment. We chose this school because we didn't want our children to be taught to the test, specifically the NJ ASK. The focus on children's abilities to fill in bubble ...  Read more

My child went in the rough beginning years the old posts here refer to. Yes, there were many problems which would not be there today. Those children were products of other schools. In fact, kids whose parents got them out of other schools for solid reasons. They brought their kid cultures of isolation ...  Read more

Things were pretty rough in 2008, especially in the older grades. Bullying was a huge problem for many. Now it's 2013 and it's better but there's still some things that need improvements. The school's strength is its teaching guides. They're wonderful (except for one). They bring their passion and ...  Read more
