    "Our son went to FRA starting in preK until the early elementary years. We started talking to friends that had children attended different types of schools : charter, public, private,etc. and were impressed with most results. We chose a different montessorri school for our daughter after extensive research and found both schools to be comparable in most areas but more reasonably priced. We again researched later grades in other schools, found they share the same "learning beyond the books" methods. Schools and teachers DO have signigicant impact in making sure children are challenged, motivated, self disciplined, and encourage a love for learning. However, it is just as much the parents responsibility! FRA did lack in letting our child slack in areas. The school they attend now gives appropriate consequences to their choices, good or bad, as in our adult life. We do have bigger class size, but feel our kids will have the ability to learn and work in more challenging settings. FRA, does accept all children, not just "gifted", contingent you meet the financial requirements. They can base tuition on income. Some private schools solely allow "gifted" children and do not lower tuition."

    "We put an incredible amount of thought into choosing the right school for our 3 year old daughter. Our first choice was the Univ. of Chicago Lab School. But with only a 30% acceptance rate and us having to affiliation with the school, that was not to be. We looked at many local catholic schools, and settled on FRA. In short, they have been wonderful. Our daughter fit in perfectly. The curriculum is age-appropriate and we can't believe the growth we have seen. She had never been apart from her mother until FRE. It went so well that we have gone from 3 days to 5 days per week."

    "We have just enrolled our child into the Young Scholars program at FRA. I cannot believe the motivation and excitement that the teachers have. After day 2 my 3 year old came home saying Spanish words and actually knew what they meant. The Instagram photos posted help make us just as excited as my daughter is everyday she comes home. If the last 2 weeks are any indication of what is to come I am so glad we enrolled her. THIS IS NOT A DAY CARE, it is a school. I agree with some of the comments on fund raising that it can be overwhelming especially for middle class parents but hopefully the cost will out weigh the costs, especially when it comes to education."

    "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."
