Ripley High School is a marvelous school. Everyone makes you feel welcomed and the teachers always go over and beyond to help you in anything that you need. It’s very small which makes things better, because everyone knows each other. It just feels like being part of a family. The classes are hard but it’s incredible because when the state test come they are easy due to the classes being hard. The classes challenge you to be the best that you can be. Overall I love Ripley High School. When I got hurt the teachers were really nice about letting me leave early due to the complications that would bring if I left eveyone would leave because of my crutches.
Ripley High School is the best. The teachers are outstanding and the sport programs are amazing. The part I wish they can change is the dress code, only because I want to feel comfortable walking around the school.
