    "My experience with Fossil has been wonderful. As a senior, I have been able to experience much of what Fossil has to offer. There is an abundance of opportunities for every student and the counseling office is fantastic. Of course some classes/ teachers are stronger and harder than others, but overall the classes are engaged and beneficial. It is up to the student to participate in the many extracurricular activities available and to take a rigorous schedule. Every student decides his/her own high school experience."

    "This is a fantastic school with great opportunities. I sent three kids through Fossil Rige and one more still attending. There are those that don't take full advantage of the opportunities provided, for them I am sorry. However, those that choose to take part in all that Fossil Ridge has to offer find this school to be among the best. If you can think of a club they have it. The teachers take pride in their school and it shows with the amount of attention and time they are willing to spend on their students. I highly recommend this school for those that want the most out of their children's education."

    "Fossil Ridge is a lousy HS. It does not give enough homework in classes that will be used in subsequent HS and college classes. The teachers grade so easily that the student thin they are doing great, but when they take the practice SAT tests the students lack of knowledge will be abundantly clear."

    "I am surprised to read negative comments about the leadership at FRHS. As a parent, I have been impressed with the principal, who has increased communication and brought about a sense of school family that was lacking. He greets students each day at the front door - by name. The career center staff bent over backwards to help my senior with college transcripts upon discovering they had her entered twice in the system, once as a senior and again as a sophomore. Both of my daughters are involved in activities, work hard in class and their teachers are truly outstanding. Fossil Ridge is a 5 star high school!"

    "The issue with FRHS is really an issue of leadership. Prior leadership understood the needs of a top grade high school in Colorado. Current leadership doesn't understand the demands, needs or trends. You can't speak directly to an administrator. In fact, they sent an email with the protocol that outlined their desires to not be bothered with concerns from their community. The principal is never visible. One of the Deans is gone all the time -- at Disney World. The AP's just don't seem to care. There seem to be a lot of excuses -- "PSD says we must..." There is very little communication home -- no newsletters, weekly updates and the website is not updated. On the other side: The teachers are incredible -- some of the best in the state. The students are great -- very caring. The curriculum is excellent. A change of leadership and the school would again would be a 10."
