Open Quote I have had three children go through Ridge, two are still there, and all three have loved the school. I am a room parent, and I agree with my kids. The school is filled with teachers and assistants. It is a title 1 school, which means that kids get extra attention with all of their school work. The children are diverse to say the least, giving my kids a multi cultural learning experience. I have no complaints, I am looking to move and hope that I can stay in the district. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
