Helping Your Child Start the School Year Right...

Every parent wants to help their child either continue the success they have had in elementary school or get a fresh start.  Every parent wants their child to enjoy school, learn a lot, discover new talents, and be happy and successful.  Starting the school year is stressful for both parents and students.  Will the teachers be fair, will they be nice, fun, and enjoy every child?  Are academic standards both high and realistic in helping each child be successful even if he/she struggles?  What about gifted or academically advanced students?  Will my child be challenged or bored?  Even the most confident child wonders where he/she will eat, with whom, and will they see friends at school.  New students wonder if they will make new friends, if they will eat alone or how they will feel all day if they do not know anyone yet.  We are here to alleviate those fears and to spend every moment of every day trying to make Canyon Ridge the best school experience your child has ever had.More
