    "Great leadership, great staff, very active PTA. Only issue is the rezoning that is going on in Steiner Ranch. River Ridge was in the center of that and the UT Golf Club flexed their muscles (read: money) and got more deserving neighborhoods (as in closer to the school than them) rezoned."

    "The teacher who posted on January 30 clearly has an issue with the administrators at River Ridge. If this person was not offered a teaching position this post illustrates why. If the author is a current teacher at the school I can only hope that he or she reconsiders the method chosen to address a grievance. I want my child's teacher to treat everyone with kindness and respect, even when there are disagreements. Whatever the issue is, airing it in this manner is inappropriate and unprofessional. This is a wonderful school with a great staff. Everyone I met there is dedicated to making sure the students do their best. My daughter looks forward to every day."

    "The school itself is fantastic, as most of the teachers are too. However, the principal and vice principal are unprofessional, lack honesty and integrity. Their hiring process is less than professional. They choose to hire their 'favorites' over more experienced candidates and most of the teachers can't stand the VP, who is rude, petty and very unprofessional."

    "My son is entering his third year at River Ridge. The staff is excellent. While a few came from Bush, the majority were out-of-district hires. I love the neighborhood concept design of the school and how it enables teachers to take the learning outside of the classroom. The technology is top-notch, w/ computers in all classrooms and an impressive computer lab. The principal is involved and can often be seen in the hallways and cafeteria interacting with students and parents. The front office staff is extremely helpful and welcoming. I, too, had to laugh at the review re: the principal on crutches. He was injured while playing a game with 4th graders in PE class. He returned to work less than 2 weeks after having major surgery, and while he was limited physically, this did not keep him from doing his job. In addition, while he is young, he has shared w/ parents that he has worked for about 8 years as an administrator, including 5 as an elementary principal. I don't consider that inexperienced. River Ridge is a top-notch school with a staff that takes their jobs seriously and makes their students' education their top priority."

    "When a campus is opening, many teachers look at it as an exciting opportunity to take on something new (thus, teachers really do volunteer to move!). There are only a few elementary schools in Leander ISD with the "neighborhood" concept, and teachers from all over the district wanted to help start a new school with this design. I don't think it's fair to make such a judgement without knowing all of the facts (in response to the "left overs" comment). River Ridge is full of caring, dedicated, intelligent, and experienced teachers and staff who absolutely love what they do!"
