I was very thankful
For being a part of this school! I learned how to being responsible and how to tackle my fear of public speaking and school involvement. I was able to take honors courses, participate in journalism, sing in choir, and be a character in various musicals. Great school but watch out for peers who like to cause trouble.

Ridgeland High School overall has been a wonderful experience me. This school unlike others in the surrounding area is very diverse in not only its students but its teachers and staff as well. The quality of education that I have gotten is wonderful. I have made strong friendships while at ridgeland, and the teachers there have been wonderful. They everyday inspire me to do my best and always strive for excellence. Ridgeland high has been a great school to go to and has prepared me for college.
I love this high school it has a very warm welcoming, the staff is always great and the new principal Mrs. Hughes is amazing. The staff really cares about the students and the teachers makes sure every student succeeds. They're a wide variety of clubs to join and opportunities you can experience. At Ridgeland High School making friends is really easy, everyone pretty much gets along with each other. The only thing I would like to see improve is more pep rally's and also more chances to win free merchandise. I feel like every student should be recognized even if they do have a C cause everyone is important in their own way.
