This is the hardest working school ever! Teachers and students work relentlessly! Teachers are totally committed to their students. The uniforms are an asset, studies show that strict uniform policies enhance learning and behavior! If your child goes to Middle Ridge, be thrilled about the education your child is getting!

Recently, due to rezoning my children were change from Heard Mixon to Middle Ridge. With the disagreement from a friend of mine, who is a Newton county teacher, I allowed my children to attend and to give this school a chance. The dress code was different from their previous school and we were not told that until the first day of school. Because they have to wear what I bought, my kids are now forced to sit in ISS and learn nothing. My children are 5 and 6 and this is absurd! Is'nt school a place to be taught,learn and not to be isolated? The dress policy goes overboard, and the use of uniforms should be a parent's option. Why should our children dress all alike and not as individuals? Parents buy the clothes not the schools. These are OUR kids and WE should choose what should be worn to school. Nice neat respectable school clothes are very appropriate. I agree, the schools should have dress policies, to insure that suitable clothes are wore but uniforms should be a choice. Am I the only parent who feels this way?
