Ridgevue High School Reviews
Rating 4.06 out of 5 32 reviews
Everyone is very welcoming and every teacher wants to see their student succeed not only in school but in the real world.
I thought it was a great school while I was there but in retrospect there was no diversity and it could’ve been better. Lots of cliques and favoritism through the school, administration did not do a very good job containing this or putting an end to it and honestly even continued the favoritism. It had a lot of potential when it opened honestly but there needs to be more action and clubs. The teachers were great they all helped me when I needed it and I still connect with some. While in school they were very supportive and did their best to get us prepared for college or the work force. The curriculum was not the best, they could do a better job acknowledging native land near the school, black history month, and delve a little deeper into US history in general. I learned a lot once I left and was exposed to a variety of historical facts that were kept hidden. Overall it was an average high school experience.
The environment at Ridgvue High school is a very positive one, students are involved and have the option to be involved in a multitude of activities. The staff is supportive and overall I've had a good experience at this school.
There can be some drama, but what high school doesn't? The level of education is relatively good, and the teachers care about their students. There are many opportunities for classes as well as extracurricular. Our music and arts program is very good as well.
There are good relationships between teachers and students a majority of the time and we are offered the resources to succeed.
Ridgevue is still pretty new, so when I went there some things were still being figured out. I don't exactly have any other high schools to compare my experience too, but I think that it was pretty normal as far as high schools go. Kids will be kids, so there's always going to be problems. The biggest criticism I have is that the adults there didn't care to listen to what the students said half the time. Maybe that's normal, I don't know. For example, one time one of my teachers asked if we felt safe at school. No one answered in the positive. But unfortunately, that's pretty normal for anyone under about 20. Overall, teachers just need to listen to what student are trying to say instead of hearing, but not listening.
I loved the beginning of high school. It allowed students to pick the path they want to choose. Freshman year I wanted to be an architect. At Ridgevue high school I was able to cross that off on my list because I took drafting classes but I now am taking anatomy and medical terminology and now want to be a physical therapist or a physicians assistant. Some teachers make finding information about classes or college a struggle, so I’m that way you have to be independent and find information yourself.
There are really great teachers, teachers that really want to change the students lives. The music program is a big deal at Ridgevue, music is really the culture there. There are also some teachers that aren't exactly great at their jobs and negatively impact the students, but only 1 or 2.
My high school offered a wide variety of college preparation courses including dual credit and AP which I greatly benefited from in my undergraduate education. I found support in the various English and STEM courses I took, but the history department could use enhanced teaching and preparation. The music department is absolutely amazing and my time in the band greatly benefitted me as a student and I always found the support that I needed.
I liked the teachers there. They were really great. What I would like to see change is open campus for lunch be available and for school spirit to be more visible amongst the students
I love the culture of Ridgevue. I am able to be myself and they offer all the classes I want to take to further prepare me for my future education!
Ridgevue High School is great because it's almost completely brand new. The teachers are knowledgeable and the music excels.
I think in all ridgevue isn’t a terrible school but it could improve a lot. i think it gets cut slack because of how new it is so i don’t expect a whole lot but what i really don’t like about the school is the way it looks. it’s not fun to be in and they don’t let us leave until school is out. i think it should be an open campus and have more decor. the academic side isn’t awful, and the sports are good too.
I liked Ridgevue High School because I am not only involved in my school but the love for the school that I have. If anyone walked in to Ridgevue Highschool they would think that it is the best school ever the academics is un real and the sports that we have are getting better each day.
I liked how Ridgevue was very put together and how they included students in some of the future planning for new safety measures.
Great teachers that really care about your success. Lots of availability to AP classes and dual credit. Certification classes like welding, emt, cna, etc.
My four years at Ridgevue have been full of first time experiences. Whether it was personal or school wide, we were constantly making history. I was apart of the first freshman class, and now I am apart of the first graduating class to have been a Warhawk for four years. Everything that our school stands for has taught me how to be a responsible member of society. The history of our mascot has shown me that even though I may not be the strongest or the fastest, I can still be above the best. I was blessed to have been apart of this unique experience, and I know my fellow classmates feel the same way.
