    "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."

    "My son is in kindergarten and his teacher is very nurturing. There is a wide array of learners in his class and I can tell she's trying to meet the needs of everyone. (She really deserves an aide though! This is kindergarten!) The office staff is very friendly and I feel my son is safe and happy."

    "My three kids have been at Rock Ridge Elementary for two years now, and they love it! We came from Clear Sky Elementary in the Meadows, and Rock Ridge outweighs them in all aspects (teachers, office staff, and curriculum) in my opinion. We have never had an issue with anything at Rock Ridge. I know not all experiences will be the same, but to us they ROCK!!"
