    My wife and I were referred to Ridgefield Academy by a family member with a child already in the school. I recall my family member stating in a comical way that “somehow” Ridgefield Academy made children love school.

    Children loving school was a foreign concept to me.
    Liking school? Ok, sure.
    But, loving it?
    I was very much intrigued.
    After an in-person visit, I saw this sheer excitement within the children. It was very impressive.

    Fast forward to present and my children have now been part of the school for four years. I can attest that my children truly do love Ridgefield Academy and the community the school has created. As a parent, I love the administration-to-parent engagement, and especially, the lack of bureaucracy.

    In my own opinion, Ridgefield Academy is honestly the environment that school was always intended to be. It is a remarkable experience for children and parents alike.

    Ridgefield Academy is great. Amazing staff and students. Kids ranging from 2-14 can happily go there and get an amazing education. There are great art, technology and music programs. There are also activities after school offered in many different fields such as sports, cooking, magic and more. There is also an amazing P.E. program. The older kids do team sports which are highly enjoyed by the students. There is a great and fun math program as well as interesting and fun science classes. The history and english departments are phenomenal. Amazing and eyeopening books and pieces of history are read and told. The language department is good, but not exceptional. The older kids and younger kids are also able to connect with each other which only strengthens the already strong community. If a child needs to reach out for extra help, it's always there and is offered. The food is also great. So many amazing things offered, there is something for everyone. Great school. I loved it.
    I had been a student at Ridgefield Academy for nine years and had a great experience overall. I made many connections with my teachers and school had always been something that I looked forward to. My grade however, was very divided and at times it felt like some students had privileges and exceptions over others for whatever reason. Some issues that had been brought up from students seemed to be overlooked or forgotten, but of course I don't know what went on between faculty. Besides these problems, I absolutely loved RA and I definitely feel like my time there has positively impacted my life. I feel well-prepared at confident as I go into high school and RA is to thank for that! My time here has been unforgettable and despite any issues that I've experienced, I still love the school. The teachers do an excellent job and RA is pretty academically challenging, the campus is very pretty, and the school is a generally happy place! I had a great time as a student here!
