Great school. Great location. Discipline is not handled well! Most staff is ready to start the day with a warm welcoming smile, are very understanding, and care about your success!
As school takes up a large percentage of my day, I believe that it is important that my environment is preparing me for the future. Ripley High School offers everything I want in a school. The incredible staff make learning fun and exciting for everyone, whether it is someone with a hard time with academics or someone who is brilliant. The staff tries to meet everyone's personal needs to help them succeed in school. My grades have been a big deal in my life because I am preparing for my future. I might not be the smartest student, but with the help of some encouraging teachers, I can be the hardest working. Although academics are important to me, I also believe the arts are just as important. They bring out the creative side of every single individual, making us all different from one other. I am an active member of Ripley’s music program, which is heavily supported among the community and school board. With everything that is offered at Ripley, I would highly suggest this school.
