My experience in the Ripon Unified School District was amazing and helped me prepare for my future. Most of my teachers were very helpful and kind. The staff at my school prepared me for the future, and it's almost here. The one characteristic that I would change would be to create more spending room for athletics. Other than this, the Ripon Unified School District was a positive experience.

Ripon is a small, safe, and welcoming community. Classes are small, so students get to know their peers and teachers personally. The teachers and staff fo their best to make learning as enjoyable as possible and to make sure every student is included. I have enjoyed my time and Ripon and recommend this friendly community to everyone.
I like everything about the Ripon Unified School District. I have been enrolled in this district for about 10 years now, ever since second grade, when we moved from Stockton CA to Ripon. My parents and I all like the staff in both Ripon Elementary School and Ripon High School. They are all really nice and you can tell they care a lot about all the students. I am currently in Ripon High and my sister is in Ripon Elementary so the staff knows us and my family every well. They have a lot of different ways students can get involve. Some ways are through all the different sports that are available and and also the sports. At Ripon High School they also have to many college prep classes to choose from. We also have to chose to either take AP classes and also Honor classes, which helps students prepare for college and to advance at their faster pace.
