    "Our family is a blended military mash up. My ex is military and my current husband is also military. My son has been going to Rock Ridge for 3 years now and during his second year, my military side received orders to NC. We decided to keep my son in Colorado because of this school. He stays with his dad for school and with me all holidays and breaks. The staff and his teachers find every way to keep me involved with his studies, events and even text/email me pictures of him doing projects! On top of that he tests for math at 4th grade level and instead of ignoring his needs to do different work, they made him a whole new curriculum to keep him advancing and not bored and falling behind. I couldn't ask for better teachers or staff. This school is the tight knit community that you can depend on to fit your kids needs."

    "I have had multiple students at this school for over four years, our first year was great! The second year brought new staff, while still good, issues of bullying were ignored and staff began shutting down, Year three brought 9 news and more mess and headache, nothing fixed and the loss of beloved office staff. Year four, so many great teachers have been lost and now the office is full of power hungry staff. if you have special needs children expect coloring pages, not enough Para's, bust the worlds BEST and lacking leadership. Gen ed classes, well good luck! The pre-school program however is top notch with amazing staff, support staff and a real feeling of community. Years after leaving preschool, my students still go say hi, and we are always welcomed with smile and love."

    "We have been at Rock Ridge Elementary for 5 years. Both of my children absolutely LOVE coming here and we , as parents, LOVE that they attend here also. Especially in the past 2 years with the new administration team!! WOW! We finally have true leadership professionals at the helm that totally "get it". The Admin Team is unbelievably supportive of ALL stakeholders; the students, the staff, and the parent community. They always do what is best for the child! The child (or parent) may not always like not getting what they WANT...but they will always get what they really NEED. The rigor of the International Baccalaureate Philosophy far surpasses the expectations of the entire school district!! There are very HIGH expectations for respectful behavior at RRE. Students are expected to be honest, kind, thoughtful, respectful, exhibit tolerance and a high level of integrity. Students are expected to take responsibility for their own behaviors or actions and the consequences that may sometimes follow. I cannot imagine being able to find a school that has higher standards than RRE does! We feel very blessed to belong to such a caring and communicative community!!!"

    "I am really surprised by this latest rating, as my own experience could not be more different. I have switched my kids from another school to Rock Ridge, and have found Rock Ridge to be profoundly better. My son experienced some bullying last year, and it was handled swiftly and effectively. My son felt very supported by his teacher and the principal, and the bullying stopped. I have two children at Rock RIdge, and I have found the teachers we have had to be skilled, caring and wonderful. I am very active in my kids' education, and volunteer in both their classrooms. I am at the school a lot, and can honestly say that what I observe on a regular basis is a very caring, skilled and respectful staff. I am thankful every day that we got out of our other school and found Rock Ridge."

    "The administration at this school clearly does not have a handle on bullying. Issues are brought to their attention and they are swept under the carpet. The issue has been going on for years. Don't be fooled into thinking the new principal has fixed anything. In fact, things may be worse than a few years ago. Office staff is marginally friendly and teachers are hit or miss. It is an each man for themselves mentality and in that, the primary needs of the kids go to the wayside. No plans of return for us because we KNOW there are better schools out there. Schools who truly put the child first."
