The Ridgefield School District provides excellent academic opportunities for students. The majority of the teachers are knowledgeable and passionate about their subjects and technology is easily accessible. Although it is easy for students to take advantage of the benefits the district has to offer, it promotes little diversity and school culture is not always at a high. At times, though, certain events bring the district together and companionship and community is especially noteworthy.
Ridgefield has a great school district. The teachers really care about your education and want you to succeed. They encourage you, guide you, and assist you in understanding the material. The counselors are great at assisting students through the college process. They have answers to almost all of your questions and are able to help you on the common application.
