    "I have children that attend here and although the middle school has diversity, the elementary does not. My children being non Caucasian are the minority here. What's sad is I know people who have tried to apply here but were not considered due to race. I thought things would be different when the new principal started but it has not. Any openings seem to get filled by PTA parents who are unqualified but are buddies. My children loved computer a couple of years ago but now they do not. This school needs diversity badly and to be more welcoming to others."

    "The faculty/staff are really friendly and helpful and seem to take the time out to get to know you and your children. I agree that the PTA can be a little clique-ish and most have been in their position for 10 years or more. However, I wouldn't say that it was in a way that was snobby or condescending to new moms just more familiar with the more veteran moms so I can see how it would make some feel left out. Mrs. Coulson (the principal) is really great and hands on. She makes sure to take time out to get to know her students and their challenges. The children also go on many field trips and have many events to supplement what their learning in class, which, at times, can become a little costly especially if you have multiple children. My main issue is the lack of homework and challenge in regards to education for the K and 1st graders. On their report cards, they receive M's for "met standard", P's for "progressing toward standard", and NP's for "not progressing". It doesn't really leave much room for analysis. Also, my child will be in 2nd grade in a few months and hasn't learned what I think he should be learning at this point as there is barely any homework daily."

    "My child attends North Ridge through the open enrollment program. I have been so pleased with that decision every year. All the teachers he has had are friendly, nurturing, organized, consistent, and encouraging. This year his teacher sends home a weekly newsletter, which I appreciate. When I emailed her that I was concerned he was struggling in a certain area, she sent home supplemental work to help him that same day. There are so many ways for parents to get involved if you want to be involved. It is an all-around positive learning environment and we have had nothing but good experiences there so far."

    "This is a 5 star school. We attend North Ridge ES (NRES), by choice, through the Birdville ISD Open Enrollment program. Our children have been here for 4 years. When we set out to find a school better suited to the advanced academic needs of our children, NRES was the obvious choice and continues to be. Folks that want to volunteer to help at our school are ALWAYS welcome! I know from personal experience. Additionally, our PTA board is comprised of people that GIVE their time to help others and they do a FABULOUS job...even when there aren't enough volunteers to help. The school staff is top-notch, as well. If you're looking for a great school, come visit NRES on any day and decide for yourself. That's what we did. :)"

    "It seems funny to me that there seems to be a slurry of activity about how great the PTA is in the recent few days. It seems almost as if a few members decided to get on and write a bunch of praises to offset the truth. The school IS a great school with some really good teachers and a great principal who cares. However, the PTA is still run by the same people over and over and they are "uppity" as another parent put it. The PTA does know about the problems that exist but they would rather post comments about how great they are instead of fixing any issues. No, teachers have never turned away help but really it does seem to be better off volunteering at school without participating in PTA. It is one of the best schools in the district. Don't let the PTA scare you away."
