    "We have been very pleased with Fox Ridge. Our son started going there last year and experienced some bullying. We were very impressed with how quickly the dean was involved, and how well the situation was handled. We loved every single teacher in the 6th grade, and highly recommend this school on both its academic and social merit."

    "About half the student body is high achieving. Those high-achieving students carry the school. The school would be a total failure without those students. The children own this school, and do whatever they feel like doing because there are no consequences. Several sources explained that the school minimizes violent behavior because the district is concerned about appearances. A few teachers are good, but the rest are woefully inadequate. The adults aren't in control of this institution, the kids are, and they do whatever they want. The children regularly use their phones to text and play video games on school computers during class time. Theft is rampant. Children aren't taught desirable character traits. You can forget about communication. Most emails and phone calls will forever remain unanswered. There's a reason they don't use email for parent-teacher or parent-admin communication -- no paper trail. My GT child's test scores dropped drastically during his short tenure at this institution, so I took him out and placed him in a charter school. Preschool is more challenging than this 'educational' institution."

    "I went to fox ridge at 7th grade and now I'm in 11th, When I went to school here, I have received negative services in staff help. The Security Team is very excellent.. They are very respectful, trustworthy, and responsible. I don't like this school because of false suspends and My little brother who graduated last year was also accused for some situations when there was other information provided. A percentage of the students are really disrespectful. I agree with the last negative report, This school is good but it's not worth going to or putting your child through!"

    "Administrators downplay violence at the school. My kid was stabbed with a pencil, and the Dean called me and indicated that it wasn't a big deal. Assume that violent incidents are vastly underreported. My child is 2E. Had to fight to get SPED assessment and services. He's also GT and gets no GT programming. He's a year above grade level in math, and he was placed at the bottom of 7th grade in math. He is being taught the same material with no new material being introduced. The school's educational philosophy is that all children will appear to succeed. The bar is set very low to ensure success. When students underperform and parents complain, the teachers just change student grades to pacify parents and students. It's an environment in which children aren't motivated to learn since they'll be promoted with low achievement. Permissive environment. The direction seems to come from the Superintendent's office and has resulted in administrators and faculty abdicating responsibility. Kids regularly text and talk during class time. They litter and use profanity in class. Students challenge teachers' authority. Some frustrated teachers retaliate. How-achieving school."

    "Scores look good until you realize that the feeder elementary schools are amazing, and then kids hit Fox Ridge,and scores steadily decline as kids lose ground. This is not a school that challenges students. Mediocrity seems to be the norm. Grammar? Spelling? Whatever they learned through 5th grade is what they will leave 8th grade with because no one corrects for grammar or spelling."
