    This sis such an amazing school. All the staff really cares about the well being of the kids. Principal Edwards and Asst. Principal Peterson are the best. They go way beyond the call of duty. They really care about there students. They do everything they can to make sure that school runs well.

    We took our kids out of private school and put them into Pepper Ridge, and it was a great move for our family. The teachers are excellent and really care about the kids. The principal works very hard to make it a great school. Her door or email are always open to discuss your child. My kids do complain about the food, but with national regulations using whole grain, they are eating healthy but don't like the taste. I love the schools diversity with different ethnic groups, medical needs, cultural backgrounds. Our country is getting more and more diverse and our kids need to know how to respect other people who are not like them. They also have a special team of adults called Promise Council who come in to talk to the 5th graders about going to college and being successful. This has really helped my 5th grader start thinking now about making good grades, creating goals and working hard towards these goals. Overall, I give this school an A+!

    The teachers are great. The education is a head of other schools. But what makes this school bad is 1. Pick up drop off, is TERRIBLE and DANGEROUS! I am waiting for a child to get hit by a car. The school doesn't enforce its rules at all. 2. There are not a lot of family after school activities to do. 3. Hot lunch could be better. My child only likes 40% of what is offered. And I think it could be healthier too. 4. Children are not watch well enough while waiting for parents to pick them up. Kids who are not walkers can do what they want. I once thought my daugher wasn't there. She went to the after school program and no one at the school knew where she was till I found her at the schools program in the gym.
