    "Fossil Ridge is great. They offer a lot of after school and before school programs. They also have plenty of electives that can suit any person. I am happy with all most all of the teachers. We have a very good Marching Band, Science Olympiad, Knowledge Bowl, and good sports teams. I think that this is a great high school."

    "I was concerned to read the negative reviews, but I have seen, so far, that the students are able to learn, and learn well, if they are motivated. This is no longer K-8, nor should it be, but rather a bridge between K-8 and college. My child has had excellent teachers and encouragement to learn. It is similar to most aspects of life--you get out what you invest, plus more. I have seen hardworking, caring teachers who teach the classes, offer assistance as needed and evaluate student performance in a timely manner. I have seen teachers that care about their students' success. Finally, we have witnessed great education for our child, which will, if it continues, will prepare her for an excellent future. Thank you, Fossil teachers and staff!"

    "Fossil Ridge is a poor high school. The homework for students is inadequate for the students to master and retain the knowledge they need in subsequent grades and for college courses."

    "Lack of communication, leadership that has no vision and mandates rules that do not support teaching or learning is leading this school into a hole that it may not be able to return from. It is very sad. 23 staff members left FRHS in 2014 -- one must ask why!"

    "Just left FRHS and I can honestly say the education declined year after year while I was there. To begin with, it was a much better school with better staff overall but as time went on things only got worse. Teachers definitely got lazier and most now follow a "student should learn on their own" approach whenever possible, and many in the school can't be communicated with and many are often very bad in terms of providing help. A few good staff members here and there but for the most part, bad teachers. Can't speak to the new principal because I only saw the result for one year and considering it had already declined in past years, it wasn't a surprise. The administration overall however wasn't very helpful nor nice throughout my years, and definitely encourages self learning. Student body is definitely wealth oriented and there is no doubt the school and ridiculous fees no other school would charge revolve around it. Test scores are high, but after my experience I have to wonder if that's just the result of smart and rich kids, or a mediocre staff. Overall, I can't say it's "worse" than other schools, but there is much to be improved."
