Coming from a former student, this place is terrible. I attended this school from Kindergarten to 8th grade. There was no coordination and the teachers barley knew what they were doing most of the time. We would skip entire lessons and units, come test time we knew nothing about it and would receive low test scores. We had teachers who didn't even care about us, they only cared about being payed. In 8th grade our English teacher referred to us as his Paycheck and couldn't care less about what we did in his class. Today I am soon graduating high school and the things that we covered here pretty much make everything we learned at Coyotes Ridge useless. Our high school teachers even told us how bad they felt for us having to go to this school because of how far behind we were compared to students from other schools. Overall, I hated attending this school. I made great friends during my time here but we hardly got an education. I do not want to share my name for personal reasons but any student from this school can agree, especially my former classmates.

My child had an outstanding second grade experience with Ms. Carlson. When he entered her classroom he was shy and struggling in reading. She worked hard and built his confidence. He is a happy, outgoing boy who loves to read!

Coyote Ridge is not the brightest school there is. It used to be an amazing school until they really started to change their ways. The teachers use a unprofessional behavior. They seem like they don't know what their doing for the most part. There is no communication in this school, which causes a lot of problems. I would no longer recommend this school. It seems as if the staff don't care like how they used to. I would give this school a one star our of 10 stars. Good luck with making it out of Coyote Ridge.
