    "I can not say enough about this school. I am not a contributor as stated below. My kids have had incredible success there and in high school as measured by the preparation FRA gave for high school. Mine are not babied. They are held accountable. This school is fantastic! Please start the high school! The need is tremendous! As the public schools fall apart FRA just keeps getting better!"

    "The Teachers at Forest Ridge are amazing. They work one on one with the students and go above and beyond what is required for a teacher. Many parents who believe the children are babied need to understand most of the students at Forest Ridge are doing work above their grade level. Some students have several grade levels higher than average. The children are pushed harder at an older age but it prepares them well for the workforce in the future. The fundraising is a little hard but it keep families close and well informed with the school and staff. Overall it is a good school and i believe it prepares the children well for high school."

    "I would agree that there is a double standard when it comes to grades. Students who have parents who are big donors are allowed to turn in work late and get higher grades. Also, how can you have administrators running around more concerned with events at their former places of employment and leading the charge to oust the Head of that school. If I were the Head here I would be watching my back."

    "Some of the teachers are wonderful and teach responsibility, accountability, and go beyond their job. Others allow kids to turn in assignments late, "fix grades", give extra credit, etc. Where is the accountability? If my child turns his assignment in on time, don't allow the kid who was lazy and mom is upset by a bad/no grade to nag you into changing the grade! My child worked hard and sacrificed to turn his work in on time. I know some of my son s classmates have received grades on report cards that are questionable. Hmmm....the quality of a teacher does not always equal the grades of the students. Most of the children are great but some are lazy and irresponsible. Help them by making them accountable! Otherwise, class sizes are wonderful and class trips are nice."

    "I have looked and looked for a great school for my children and I finally found it!!! The teachers have such a passion for teaching and that excitement rubs off the students. The family atmosphere creates a wonderful environment for learning. When you walk through the front doors you feel how special the school is immediately!"
