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.
I always wished there would be more things to be a part of in highshool. You really can’t help making this school very fun and entertaining because everyone knows everyone here. It gets a little old and you get tired of it. But overall. I have met all of my childhood friends here and I am so thankful for it. They have helped me through it and make me the person u am now. The teachers are also very kind and sweet. And they will do anything to see you be successful. Any teacher would want that for their students but there is just something special about the teachers we have here. Always give us life time advice and stories that one can’t forget. Teach us life lessons. But I’m happy to be ending my high school career here. It was all fun while it lasted but for the future. I hope to see it grow more and more over time. That would be a great sight to see for me
