    "this school has extreme disciplinary policies Lack of compassion and concern for the well being of the children and have a Stepford wife mentality disconnected would appear that they are dealing with adults and the lack understanding of elementary age children. really need to make administrative changes"

    "I have two children at Garden Ridge. They have had great teachers, who have provided additional content and challenges for them, beyond grade level basics. Mr. Acosta, the assistant principal, is a very visible face of the school- and knows all the families (not just current students) by name. The Art and G/T teacher are exceptional. The PTA could use some extra help, but has done a great job of holding events which get families involved. I have appreciated being able to walk my child to class in Kindergarten, Read in the hall with students through second grade, and have always felt welcome in this school. The office staff is friendly and helpful, and they set a tone for the school. Nurse Sheila truly cares about the kids, and takes time to deal with small things too. There is a lot of parent involvement for events. Garden Ridge would benefit from a few more clubs, but I feel the environment and education have been top notch."

    "This is more than a school. It is a community. My grand daughter has attended this school for 3 years. I know she is treated with respect as well as an individual. The teachers are first rate. Their commitment comes through in their warmth, their knowledge, their sense of not only teaching their students but all. I am grateful for this school that provides a broader sense of what our educational system provides and top educational standards."

    "I have one child in GRE. I have found the school and administration to be very good. The assistant principal Mr. Costas seems to be the face of the school as I have never had any dealings with Principal Van Horn (Maybe that is a good thing). Mr. Costas is very visible and is very pleasant to talk to. I have contacted by phone the PTA leaders on three occasions about fund raiser issues, once with no response and the two others a response a couple of weeks later. There seems to be a bit of a communication issue with the PTA, but nothing major. The teachers are very friendly and responsive to you and your childs needs. Overall, I think the school is very good, but does have some minor flaws as most schools do. The I believe I am very fortunate to have my child enrolled in this school."

    "Excellent school. The staff and teachers are the best. They are open to parent involvment and communication is easy. Would love to see more clubs formed by parents thru PTA (chess, robotics, etc) Over all an excellent place to be."
