    "Nature Ridge has excellent teachers. The principal is so involved with the children/students, parents and teachers. The team work from the parents who volunteer their time, money and support is awesome. I never seen a school with so much support. Everyone gets involved in every grade level even the special needs classes and students don't stay behind."

    "This school is way overcrowded with a principal that is not doing a good job and should be dismissed as well as demoted from every obtaining a principal position at a school again within u-46. For your hard earned payment into our tax dollor system, I highly suggest moving or staying out of school district u-46 as it is a complete shambles with continued misuse of funding. This school district as to be the worst in Illinois."

    "Our school is way overcrowded. It is evident in the curent report card of the school that has been published for the 2008/ 2009 school year. When is this issue going to be addressed ? We can no longer take the majority of the Spanish program students from the Elgin area if the school continues to grow without proper expansion. This is a serious issue amongst every parent I speak with .. At this point I feel that the only way to solve this problem is to move out of Bartlett and be rid of U-46. My tax money will be better spent on my children in another district. The teachers are fantastic , but they can only do so much with overcrowding. Submitted by a"

    "this school is very nice but way over croweded. The classroom size are very large which is not fair for the teachers and our kids. We have been complaining about this issue but the school district is not really concerned about the impact of this problem on our kids education and their right to have a school with the same rate of inrollament as other schools in Bartlett."

    "As a parent, I am very pleased to see my children actively engaged in learning on a daily basis. I am pleased with the excellent mode of communication within the classroom and throughout the district. (phone messages, e-mails, etc.) As an educator, I feel that Nature Ridge has a strong positive vibe coming from the staff, and they are doing all that they can with the growing population, and demands that are put on educators every day to keep up with the insane law of 'No Child Left Behind' The teachers at this school do an exceptional job showing the kids that they care."
