Ridgewood Public School District Reviews
I have had over 20 years of being a Ridgewood public school parent and I am still recommending friends to move here to take advantage of the love of teaching our children were lucky to receive. Every school system has peer pressured problems but if you involve your child in any of our art, music or academic clubs you and your child will a feel deep sense of community. Specifically, our music programs bring out the best in our children, from deep exposure to gifted artists sharing their talents, to cross age mentoring Ridgewood identifies, guides and embraces your child’s talents. Though, the parent/caregiver should be involved and ask questions for you child, because there are so many opportunities that some are missed if you don’t do your research.
During my experience at Ridgewood High School, I was heavily involved in the school's music and arts program, specifically concert band and marching band. I also participated in dance organizations associated with the music program. Ridgewood is well-known for its excellent academics and music programs, and I am very lucky to have been a part of both academic and extracurricular programs under the instruction of superior teachers.
Ridgewood High school provides a great education for students and has teachers who will stay after and continuously work with their students to help them succeed. Though, students have to reach out to their advisors rather than their advisors reaching out to them about anything college related.
