Ridgewood High School Reviews
This school goes above and beyond to prepare you for higher education, all while providing you with the tools to become the best version of yourself. This school is everything you could ever want, all you need to do is to be willing to put in the work. The motto, "A tradition of excellence", is tangible. The culture is very competitive and driven by the incentive of success. There are wonderful academic, athletic, and art programs. The teachers are elites in their field and can help students learn concepts in a plethora of ways. There is no doubt that everyone who graduates from here can easily change the world. Let's go Maroons!
Great school and the town in general is very connected. You are able to work, play sports, have fun in clubs, all while still being connected to your friends. The school has many programs to orient your education to medical, artistic, or history/english. Of course you can go the basic route too. The classes range is various difficulties, so you will always be able to challenge yourself more!
I personally like the amount of support Ridgewood highschool provides in your passions. Ridgewood high school offers a large variety of courses and provides many opportunities to take AP level classes. I started taking AP level classes during my senior year and will graduate high school with 5 AP classes taken. However, I do feel that some of the guidance counselors try to do the least amount of work possible and try to discourage the students from taking certain high school academic paths because they believe that it will challenge them. Additionally, once you start a certain academic path in your freshman year, it is really hard to get placed in higher classes.
