    It starts with the principal. This principal, Ms. Babb, is truly committed to the school, the teachers, and most importantly the students. For the past 2.5 years we have been at Aldridge we have had great teachers. Starting in 2nd grade one teacher focuses on science for all students at that grade level. She has a passion for the subject and it shows and rubs off on the kids. This puts them at a great advantage moving forward in learning. My daughter has enjoyed going to school every day which I find amazing. There are no negative influences from her classmates that aren't age appropriate. Any issues that do come up are dealt with quickly and effectively. This is a top notch school, and I couldn't imagine going to another school in this area or beyond.

    My son is attending this school for last 4 years and has been always happy in all 4 years. His grades has been always improving and I get notified well in advance if teacher senses any issue so that I can work with him and ensure things are on track. His current teacher Mrs. Pitts is strict but she is trying to help students all the time and very focused on being 100%. The leadership of principal is a big plus. Overall, we are very satisfied with all factors of school like their Library, extra curricular activities and even Food!

    This school is over rated. Full of styles but substances are much tobe desired. A number of teachers are very rude and condescending. They treat according to the way the parents dress eventhough the parents are well educated. There is one particular teacher in 2nd grade who would shout at students and insult the parents during conference. Teach little but lots of homework and test a lot. She is very rigid. Doesn't accept different ways of finding solution though the end result is the same. Having a piece of paper called teaching certificate doesn't make a good teacher. The result of state assessment for the past years speak volume of the quality of teaching. A good school has percentage of passing at 95% and above. Where is the position of this school? They dare not publish it. Avoid this school if you don't want your children being shouted at and yourself being insulted because your way of doing things different from them.

    The principal is highly engaged and aware of students and teachers. There is a high parent involvement.

    I have really enjoyed our time at Aldridge. We have one child who honestly has historically had schoolwork come easily to him and I can say he has been challenged for the first time. It was good for us to work through, and I'm thankful for his teacher for recognizing it and pushing the extra mile. The moms take a little bit to get to know, but really it has just taken me being the one to say hello, tell me about you to break this cycle.

    I am disappointed in Aldridge I heard this school had the best education. All the teachers we rude, especially one but I am not going to say. My child said the students were not good influences.And talked very innopropriate. My child also said his teacher was always distracting and "annoying". I would not Recommend Aldridge.

    My child attended Aldridge for 1 1/2 years. First semester of 2nd grade, they have no assigned homework and it was not challenging enough for the students. We ended up transferring our child to a different school after 1.5 years.

    Excellent teachers and wonderful principal who considers the needs of each student individually. I will have two children there in the fall and couldn't be happier.

    This a very bad school. I do not recommend it. The teachers are not fair and treat other students better than the others.

    When I first moved here, I was so excited to be within the Aldridge schhol zone. I heard how lucky we were...there is a waiting list a mile long to get into the school, the education was top notch, etc. Unfortunately, I have not had a single good experience with the school. The school secretary is rude and trys to assert power she does not actually have. Several times when I requested meetings with the principal I was told she was unavailable or off campus at a meeting. How can you be a principal of a schhol when you are never there? The assistant principal made very rude, judgemental and inappropriate comments to me when I questioned some school practices. Minor problems with age appropriate behavior were not handled in the classroom...students were sent to the principal's office. If I could send my child to another school I would without hesitation.

    Aldridge is a wonderful school. My oldest daughter will be going into her 5th year there and my younger daughter will start this fall. We have not seen a high turnover in teachers. Quite the opposite. Ms. Carruther's has a wonderful staff. There is a high level of dedication to the children. There is great parent involvement, which is key. Our experience has been great. We recommend this school to anyone.

    My daughter has now attended Aldridge for two years, and I am very impressed with the teachers, principal and staff. She has progressed academically, and she loves being at school. Here first grade teacher has been with Aldridge for more than 30 years, and there are many other teachers that have been with Aldridge for many years. I'm proud of the fact that there are some transfer students at Aldridge. It means that Aldridge is a good school to be attending, if people go through the efforts to be there. Aldridge is currently going through a renovation. It's going to be up to date and beautiful when it's finished.

    We are very disappointed by Aldridge. The high teacher turnover rate, drop in overall school rating (once exemplary), and lack of structure are big problems. There is also a high number of students who transfer in from other neighborhoods. We would not recommend this school to anyone.

    Aldridge is an excellent school, my daughter has attended for five years and is doing great! The parents are very involved, the teachers are good and there are music, art, and sports programs.
