My experience at Ridgeview was amazing. I went to Ridgeview k-12 and loved every minute of it. The teaching staff is incredible for a small, rural school. The staff always made sure you were reaching your highest potential. I loved the atmosphere of the school and the positive energy that flowed through it each and everyday. Each day teachers were prepared to teach new lessons and provide new activities. Most students were prepared to learn and take in new information each and everyday. Clubs and activities were limited due to being a small school, but each club had many opportunities. Many of the opportunities included volunteer options and giving back to the community. At Ridgeview the club leaders lead by example and I think that is why Ridgeview becomes a better place each and every year.

The close-knit community here is extremely welcoming and kind. The town is very small, so everyone knows everyone, and you're guaranteed to have the same teacher at least twice at some point, which is actually nice, as you form a tighter bond with them.
When we moved into the area, we moved into this school district due to the system. Even though I may not agree with every move made by the district, overall and compared to area districts I feel Ridgeview is a standout.
