Faith Ringgold School of Arts and Science Reviews
Was Once Great -- Those Were The Days
Students and families exited the school in large quantities. I doubt there is even a wait-list any more to get into this school. If you think this school is a safe and nurturing alternative to standard middle schools, think again.
I will say that a few of the teachers there are really great but most of the good ones left. There are some really, really bad teachers still "teaching" at that school (I use that term lightly).
This school needs help.
Faith Ringgold School of Arts and Science, Principal has no idea on how to run a school, teachers have no idea how to run the upper grade classes and the students are INCORRIGIBLE. The eight grade class are allowed to bully and sexual harass other students and have no real consequences.
the community and staff promote a positive learning environment suited to various learning styles. Highest star test scores in the district
