Ridgefield Highschool was a great place to go to school at. The teachers were really good at explaining things to individual students if they didn't understand something. The new facilities that were just put in, as well as the ones going in, are all amazing and are definitely going to help the school grow. They had a lot of clubs for the size of the school and students were involved in all of them. Ridgefield has great sports teams all around and I am proud to say that I will be graduating from there.

While I have only been a part of Ridgefield High School I see how close everyone in this community is and how helpful they all are. When I moved here I didn't know anyone but by the first week so many people had introduced themselves to me and helped me so much getting around the school and community. I do wish that the adults at the school would reach out more to the new students. At my old school I was much more involved in the community but here I haven't been asked my opinion on most things here. I have many idea that could be brought to the plate from my old school. The academics at this school are amazing, the teachers really want you to learn and understand what you are working on. As I go into my senior year I am getting a lot of help from online resources made by the staff that are specifically for graduating and college. Overall Ridgefield is an outstanding school that prepares its students greatly for college.
Ridgefield High School is a pretty good school. However, It could probably use more diversity, and more clubs/activities.
