The teachers really care about the education provided and they really care about your children! It is a rigorous school, but the end result is worth it!

I personally really like the school. Now that might be a bit biased because I go there but the school itself is a really good place. It's small, easy to get around and I love the look of it. It definitely needs some work on the surrounding area but I suppose that doesn't really matter.

I love a majority of the teachers and staff. It feels like a majority really care about the students and not just their grades but their wellbeing. Sure, there's those few that feel as though they're simply in it for the paycheck but it's so few and completely outranked by the good ones.

The school does a great job of trying to involve the students in as many events as possible. They have events and clubs catering to everyone and I feel like that's a really big thing for such a small school.

Overall, the school does such an amazing job of trying to accommodate everyone and provide a good space for learning and being comfortable.
Eagle Ridge Academy is a school that is very supportive of its students, focused on academics, and an all-around amazing school. There are plenty of clubs for students, from gaming, math, and Interact club, National Honors Society...the list goes on and on! Also, they have a fair selection such as: volleyball, baseball, soccer and basketball (boys and girls) or you can play sports at a different school. The teachers are very supportive, always available for help, and are pretty great at teaching. Since it is a smaller school, you get good relationships with the teachers, students, and staff. The only drawback about this school is that there are no honors classes or AP/CP classes. There are college classes that you can take as a current enrollment student, which is an awesome opportunity! The professors come to Eagle Ridge to teach and you gain college credit. Eagle Ridge Academy is a great school and if I were to do high school all over again, I would pick Eagle Ridge Academy again.
