Ritenour School District Reviews
For the most part it's been not good. Elementary was awesome and teachers were always listening. Middle school I had to transfer from one school to the other cause the first ones teachers were horrible (except for like 7). And high school, there's some good teachers but they never took care of discipline or over extend discipline. The school gets mad at students who go to our technical school for no reason at all. This school has gone down hill and I'm in my junior year now and they are getting worse. Not cause of the virus but with everything. At least at the tech school I get treated like a college kid and the high school treats you like pre-k students. It's just ridiculous.
Just like many high schools in the area, there's kids who hate it and there's kids who loved it. I was one of the kids that made the best out of it. The ones who wanted to leave were the kids that weren't really engaged in school, class or any activities. My class, class of 2018 had a great bond. Greater than the cool kids and geeks. We all got along and we ALL hung out. It was miraculous and weird. But that's what made the school so inviting. But it was also competitive which is great for students. Good grades and healthy students is usually the culture. we all strive to be better than the next. And always being the underdog at sporting events when we won it was a great joy too.
While I appreciate the fact that Ritenour is making an effort to improve its reputation over all and has a good track record for fiscal responsibility thus far, and I have liked the schools my child has attended, my experience at the Ritenour School District office itself was not pleasant. When my daughter and I first moved here, the difficulty I had in just simply getting her enrolled to take classes was frustrating. The tiny windows in which I could get her enrolled were also not convenient, but I had to rearrange my work schedule to get it done. What would help would be more days and times to allow parents to come in and enroll their children. The website should also have specific requirements for proof of residency and other necessary paperwork.
