School Reviews

  • Recommended February 28, 2014 - I do not like that we ( the parents) can't call in and excuse a child from being sick or not being in school that day. It is awful going in that parking lot in the morning to drop off the letter as to why my child will not be in school. I work just up the road but didn't get to work until 7:30 am the time that I start work because I had to go through the loop to go out of the parking lot in the morning. Please change the policy for working parents that can't do the drop off early in the morning. - Posted by Parent
  • Recommended November 11, 2011 - Pine Ridge school is full of drugs and the teachers do not bother helping you if you have questions. - Posted by Student/Alumni
  • Recommended May 03, 2011 - The school sounds great on paper, but in actuality, has been a C-D rated school since it opened in 1994; the million dollar question is: Why? - Posted by Parent

School-to-Prison Pipeline Persists Despite Local, State and National Efforts
Inadequate funding and resources for schools, harsh zero-tolerance discipline policies, police presence in public schools, and de facto segregation continue to create school environments in which poor and minority students have little chance of succeeding. The result is a continuation of the school-to-prison pipeline that has been commonplace in the American education system for decades, despite federal, state and local efforts to curb the problem.
