    "The new leadership team lacks vision. This has been a great school for the last 9 years -- the future seems uncertain. The past two principals hired a great staff. Dollars used to be placed in instruction -- this year, they have hired another administrator and bought new office furniture -- leaving class sizes very large. I have not been impressed with the principal's performances on Ridge TV. Ridge TV is one of the main avenues of communication with the student body. For a school that says it wants to end bullying -- the skits are probably not appropriate."

    "This is my senior year of high school at Fossil Ridge High School and I have spent all four years here. I absolutely love being a part of this school- its a great environment! I have so many friends that have transferred from other schools around here to Fossil and I have heard nothing but great things about their decision to transfer to our school. One of my friends, (who transferred from another school to Fossil last year) told me just yesterday that, "People at Fossil actually pay attention in class and are nice." Of course no school will be perfect, but I am very impressed with this school. I feel safe and have learned a lot!"

    "I am a freshman at Fossil Ridge High School and I am always feeling accepted within any group. With any school comes bullying and drug use but I think Fossil Ridge High school was the right choice for me and for any incoming student. Fossil does a very good job limiting the bullying and drugs. All around a very good school."

    "We've been happy with Fossil, but are very disappointed with a change in policies with the new administration for the 2013-14 school year. We've made choices for our children over the years based upon what was best for them as well as representations that were made by administrators at the schools we were choosing. As recently as last year, we were assured that school of choice would not be a problem for siblings of current students. We have verified every year on this and always been assured that our younger child would have no problem being accepted at the school her sibling attends and where her fellow students from middle school will be going (Fossil). Now, we've been told by the new principal that NO new choice students will be accepted for the next few years and that our family, and others, will need to have students at multiple high schools since they will not take our incoming students next year."

    "I am currently a freshman at Fossil Ridge High School, and I can safely say that this is one of the best school's in the country. I have been moving schools my entire life, and have had many experiences at different schools. When I first came to this school, I was pleasantly surprised to find what a great school it was. The school had outstanding academics, some of the best sports teams in the state, and great school spirit. The highly qualified teachers are loved by the students and are ready to help every student. The environment is good also; there are almost no cliques, everyone is welcome, and no student is left out in anything. I have never felt more at home at a high school."
