  • the techers are great but the lunchees are a little gresy. it takes for ever to get to the front of the line. they should make another line for the main dish because they just slow down the line because they don't know what they want. I am only in 7th grade my first year is not what i hoped for.

  • My son is now in 8th grade at Ring Lardner.
    I feel this school gives the parents a chance to be involved with what your child is doing and what they are teaching your child.
    They respect your input and your child's input. I think RL is a great prep school for high school.
    I have heard some people say Edwardsburg schools are top!!
    Well, they haven't attened Ring Lardner!!
    To the teachers on 8B, thank you for your dedication and hard work with out great teachers there would be no future.
