Ridley High School is a beautiful place, and the majority of teachers are very kind and supportive. Honestly the positives of RHS are obvious from a glance, so I'm going to go more in depth about the negatives. Some aspects of the school feel under developed and under funded, while other parts of the school get unwarranted praise and attention (Sports). The administration is very weird. Their priorities seem to be backwards a majority of the time. Most of the teachers don't enjoy the rules they have to enforce. The administration seems to not understand what their students want and need. Maybe instead of having a 'Theme' every year they could just solve the problems that already exist. The last thing we need are new laptops when the WiFi can barely handle 30 people using it at once.
Out of all of the teachers that I had at RHS, a select few were wonderful teachers. I had many that put us down and made us feel like everything we did was wrong. The student population at RHS is full of bullies that made it extremely difficult to want to come to school. Even further, nothing is done about these bullies. Students often ditched classes without consequences and were able to walk right out the door. Popular students and football players got away with whatever they wanted, including public fights. There is a fight almost everyday at RHS, including one where a child was taken out in an ambulance. I loved my guidance counselors, they were very mom like and helpful. I wish I had been informed that I could have taken AP classes much earlier and certain classes to prepare for them a year before. Money for sports teams were also dispersed very poorly, teams like tennis had to pay a lot of money for uniforms. I had a very difficult experience overall and am happy to graduate.
I was new to Ridley school district when I began as a freshman at Ridley High School, but I quickly felt like I fit right in. Over my four years of attendance, the staff helped me deal with my developmental issues and put together a unique education plan for me, so I was able to continue learning and eventually graduate. The teachers are all very diverse individuals, and most are interesting people. I never ate the cafeteria food but I never heard anyone complain. As for the academics of the school, I believe my education there was sufficient (as I can't possibly compare it to any other high schools), but being in college for over two years now, it is apparent that what I learned has been very useful and was definitely enough to prepare me for college.
