11 Parent Reviews for River Ridge Elementary School

Great leadership, great staff, very active PTA. Only issue is the rezoning that is going on in Steiner Ranch. River Ridge was in the center of that and the UT Golf Club flexed their muscles (read: money) and got more deserving neighborhoods (as in closer to the school than them) rezoned.

The teacher who posted on January 30 clearly has an issue with the administrators at River Ridge. If this person was not offered a teaching position this post illustrates why. If the author is a current teacher at the school I can only hope that he or she reconsiders the method chosen to address a grievance. ...  Read more

The school itself is fantastic, as most of the teachers are too. However, the principal and vice principal are unprofessional, lack honesty and integrity. Their hiring process is less than professional. They choose to hire their 'favorites' over more experienced candidates and most of the teachers ...  Read more

My son is entering his third year at River Ridge. The staff is excellent. While a few came from Bush, the majority were out-of-district hires. I love the neighborhood concept design of the school and how it enables teachers to take the learning outside of the classroom. The technology is top-notch, w/ ...  Read more

When a campus is opening, many teachers look at it as an exciting opportunity to take on something new (thus, teachers really do volunteer to move!). There are only a few elementary schools in Leander ISD with the "neighborhood" concept, and teachers from all over the district wanted to help start a ...  Read more

The staff has been so warm and welcoming to us. I feel like we are sending him to a top notch private ...  Read more

My daughter came to this school from a private school and was surprised when she learned this was not a private school! I agree the "neighborhood" design is wonderful and we frequently see the principal in the hall or around campus interacting with students and parents. We are excited to see what they ...  Read more

River Ridge is about to embark on its 2nd year and if it is anything like the 1st it will be wonderful! After reading the review posted on July 20th I must wholheartedly agree the secretary is out of this world! She could not be more helpful and friendly. Where I don't agree is on the review of the ...  Read more

The school itself is a fantastic design....however, the overall teaching staff has been very disappointing. They filled the school with Laura Bush "left-overs" that is to say, teachers that were no longer wanted at that school and then RR filled the rest of the teaching spots with inexperienced teachers ...  Read more

Amazing! A brand new, beautifully designed school that runs like the staff and faculty have been together for years! A very involved and visible principal....happy and outgoing office staff...PHENOMENAL teachers! My 3rd grader is engaged and challenged daily...the 'neighborhood' design allows a lot ...  Read more
