    "I hate to rain on anyone's parade, but really think about what you want for your child before sending them here. I have found my kid, now in grade 5 Spanish Immersion Gifted, has no time for anything but homework after school since the beginning of 4th grade, although I am constantly told my child is slower and unorganized and the work shouldn't take the 2-3 hours per night that it does. If you are ok with that amount of work, then send your children here. (I am pleased with the Spanish Immersion program tho....my child is bilingual now because of it) From what I know this is the best public school choice in the county, but it's hard to see my child so stressed out and with no time to be a kid. I wish my kid had time to focus on other things or just have down time or be a kid after school, but I guess that is what this school system with its standards and FCAT has wrought. Piles of work with no room for creativity, thought, expression and wonder.....ie childhood. :-("

    "I want to start off by saying this is our 2nd year at Ridgecrest with my son and my daughter will be joining us next year. I am a member of the PTA and I love being involved here at Ridgecrest. We have a very dedicated staff and the teachers are the Best of the best. We also have the gifted program here and it is amazing what they do with the students. We have many different programs here that we offer for the students and their families. Last year was very exciting and we are really looking forward to what this year has to bring."

    "Ridegecrest elemantary has been a blessing for the families in our community. I am a Program Assistant for the Neighborhood Family Center in Largo which works with many children who attend Ridgecrest. The parents, staff, vounteers and children who all participate in the schools activities have done a wonderful job working together to make sure the children are ready and able for school. We work together also as part of a 360 program to help those who are struggling or need so need some tutoring. I am grateful to be part of such an outstanding team."

    "As a parent and a teacher, I have had the pleasure of educating children at this school for over 6 years. My two children are a part of both the gifted and regular education program. Ridgecrest has a great sense of unity and the community truly comes together for all children."

    "I LOVE this school's gifted program! Students work above grade level in reading and use the Everyday Math series which is considerable above grade level for Florida. Teachers are helpful and challenge gifted learners to meet their potential. Several enrichment activities are also available: Scratch Club, Chess Club, Mad Science, National Honor Society, and Band are a few offered."
