I love the opportunities and the positive atmosphere here at RHS! There are so many ways to express yourself through the programs and clubs on campus. The only thing that would make the school better, would be if it had more diversity.

Ripon High has allowed me to develop strong, unforgettable relationships with many of my teachers and classmates. The positive atmosphere of the school has made each day one to remember and I never felt out of place. I am extremely pleased with the kindness of the staff over my four years at this school and their ways of teaching. The staff is quite intelligent and made learning experiences fun. In the future, I hope this small, yet amazing school develops more and reconstructs to allow more kids to come.
I have been a student at Ripon High for four years. I have enjoyed every day that I have been at this high school, whether it was the teachers or other students that brought that smile to my face. Everyone involved at the school has such an amazing spirit and admiration for the culture and you do not see much elsewhere. The teachers are great educators and are always willing to learn and evolve with the students. With the school not being able to constantly afford new books, the teachers find a way to make sure we can learn to the best of our abilities. It is not always easy, but they somehow make it work.
