Ripon Area School District Reviews

If you don’t care if your child’s teacher ever responds to your correspondence via email or hand-written note..then Ripon Barlow Park school is for you (and specifically Metoxen and Weise are the teachers for your children). If you enjoy your children being called by formal full names rather than what you prefer them to be called and an environment where rules are posted everywhere (picture coded for kindergartens) well then your little conformist will feel right at home! I’m truly saddened to hear that there will now be even less accountability going forward in 2019-2020 onward now that Barlow Park will also be a circus (oh excuse me) “charter” school. Disgusting. I will drive my kids to another district rather than have a repeat experience or worse.

I loved the districts support in the music departments of their schools, and I loved the teachers overall. The teachers are always willing to push their students because they see hidden potential that their students have.
I really liked how small the school was and how you got to know everyone individually. Being at this school since I was in kindergarten, I can name almost every person that I see walking through the halls. Being in this kind of environment makes going to school feel like home.
