My daughter is starting second grade this year and has been in RITTA since kindergarten. We have nothing but positive feedback about this school. The teachers are enthusiastic and caring, the leadership is strong and the PTO is very active. We are looking forward to another school year:-)

My child goes to Ritta and I've been very pleased with the school. The PTO is very active and work hard to raise much-needed funds for the school.

I have taught at Ritta for 3 years, and I think it's a great place to work and learn. We strive to give all our children the best education and equal attention for all students.
