    "I have 2 kids going to SR now, my oldest is in 3rd grade n my youngest is in half day K. Both of my kids absoultly love their school n their teachers. I am very happy w not only the teachers, but the office staff is great too. I believe that if your family lives in this area, then SR is going to the best school for you children to attend."

    "I am a dad of a thrid grader at South. I'm not a teacher, I don't know much about how this whole nonsense about testing works and I certainly don't claim to understand the fight between the union and the school board. I honestly don't care about that. What I care about is my son and the education he recieves and whether or not he's happy. Here's what I know: I see a happy kid running into school every day. I see the crossing guards and the principal and the teachers and the secretaries all great him by name. I hear him talk about the kids at school and rarely do I hear anything negative. I know my kid is happy and I know that the teachers he has had to date have worked hard with him and every other kid to be sure they get what they need. When I walk into the school for a conference or just to pay the lunch acccount, I'm greeted by friendly people who may not know my name, but they know my son, and honestly, that's what I care about. This is a great school and I can't think of one single reason for anyone to not try it. You will be amazed at the caring that goes on."

    "My son has been at South Ridge for 4 years now and he LOVES it! I've had nothing but a great experience with South, despite many of it's negative reviews. My son was identified early as an advanced learner and the teachers have done everything within their power to challenge him. My e-mails are always answered promptly by whomever I've contacted, whether that be administrator or teacher. If they can't answer my questions, they've referred me on very quickly and I've always gotten the answer. They truly do their best and they really never get the kudos they deserve. You must try this school and you must ignore the blah-blah-blah about test scores. The kids RUN to school because they're so happy to go. They run out happy, talking and playing with one another regardless of age. Really, I love this school and respect all they do for kids."

    "The submission regarding fighting on the playground is completely absurd. I drive by the school a few times each day and I have never seen anything other than play from the students. I have been volunteering on a regular basis at the school for 4 years and have yet to see any arguments let alone fights at the school. There is ALWAYS at least two teacher's aides and usually a teacher on the playground with their class. The teachers are engaging, caring and passionate about their students. I have always been greeted by the office staff when entering the school and Dena (the principal) is visible in the school, not hiding in her office. Technology is used in every classroom and both of my children love going to school there. I wouldn't go anywhere else in Castle Rock, with the IB program, the diversity of the student population and the dedication of the teachers it's not a hard decision."

    "I have been a parent at SR for 5+ years and am VERY active in the school PTCO. I spend a ton of time volunteering at SR and have gotten to know the inner-workings of this school with a unique perspective. The review below is shocking to me. I know that the aids are on the playground the entire time, supervising the kiddos with little tolerance for bad behavior. The Principal, Dena, has always attended to any concerns I've had, so I question the merit of the story featured below mine. I've never EVER seen an out-of-control scenario where there is violent behavior & no supervision at SR, so I urge you to take that story with a grain of salt! Getting to know the folks who run South Ridge, I truly can say nothing but good things. They are the most caring & attentive & treat my child, who has learning disabilities, with respect and an understanding of his learning differences. They allow him to show his knowledge in the way he knows how and that really helps boost his self-esteem. We don't all learn in the same way and I've been impressed continually of how this school recognizes that fact & encourages their students to shine in the way they know how. This truly is a great school!"
