We are new to the Ridgetop Community and I could not be happier as a parent and fellow educator. I see my kids using language in a whole new way as part of the immersion program. They notice Spanish everywhere now that we are out and about. They are not only learning content in Spanish, they are also learning about Hispanic traditions and culture. I look forward to seeing their continued growth as bilingual students in this program.
We have been part of the Ridgetop family for a year, and when I say family I truly mean that. The school's Principal (Mr. Gloria) and Assistant Principal (Ms. Schultz) both work very hard to make parents and kids feel welcome and part of a special community. In addition, the dual language aspect of the school is invaluable, with kids spending upwards of 50% of class time learning only in Spanish. Having grown up in a bilingual program myself for all of elementary and middle school, with a very similar structure to that of Ridgetop's, I feel lucky that our daughter gets to experience this type of education. In our limited time there, she's already throwing bits of Spanish here and there into her daily expression at home, which is great to see. I am certain that challenging her mind in this way is helping her to think more creatively, and to push herself in ways she might not otherwise.
