Ridgeview high school is a large campus with a very diverse student body. There are many clubs and sports open to all, and the people are as friendly as it gets! The staff is mostly very professional and helpful, and the school spirit is unmatched! Overall, Ridgeview has been so helpful in helping me achieve my academic and social goals and that is something that I will treasure for a lifetime.

Ridgeview's a good school, has great teachers and peers. Very diverse and many students are school spirited which is nice. A thing I would change is probably it's food because for us students and some teachers who eat school lunches, we don't have many selections of food to fill our stomaches. Granted we got a new "Sandwich Bar", but it's basically the salad they serve at school put into a tortilla wrap, or a hotdog bun topped with taco sauce and mayo. Heck, is this even a sandwich bar? A tortilla wrap isn't even a sandwich! Well, in all seriousness, the food isn't the best. Get's pretty boring eating the same thing every school day.
Ridgeview High School has many teachers who put a lot of effort into their students and genuinely care about their well-being. They make sure that their students are succeeding and give them a safe environment to be able to talk about issues they might have going on. Ridgeview also offers many clubs and electives that all students are likely to find an interest in at least one. With an award winning Drama Department and a great Forensics and Debate club, and many others, Ridgeview offers its students a range of opportunities. The counselors are friendly and helpful from academic issues to personal issues, they are able to assist. Overall, Ridgeview is a pretty good school that is a great environment for all students.
