Ritenour Senior High School Reviews
Ritenour High School is not a bad school but it does have some flaws. Some of the teachers and staff are very rude. They sometimes have attitudes and act like they don't want to help you. But other than that, I do say that college counselors are really helpful with sharing many opportunities with students about college information, scholarships, job opportunities, and many more. You can also take dual enrollment/credit and if you meet the requirements you can go for free!
I really enjoyed my time at Ritenour High School! The students and teachers were all really nice and happy to learn. I really liked the clubs that were offered before and after school and I love that the classes are so varied and offer so many options to students. We also had a good time at lunch; teachers' and staff would sometimes play music and we had pingpong in the back of the lower lobby. However, I wish there was more security since it is a large public school and we only have a few resource officers in the building.
Overall, my experience at Ritenour Sr. High had a major impact on my college readiness and attitude toward school. Transferring from a private school showed me that the AP classes here were a little inferior to private school education. The teachers did care about their students, and the resources were readily available to those who seemed it. There were a lot of physical altercations and very little punishment. The general attitude of students was not to receive an education, but to simply finish high school, contrary to the high school I was at prior. The classroom sizes and student-to-faculty ratio was pretty good, and allowed for easy learning for all in each class. The school prepares the AP students for college, but does not do a good job preparing the rest of the students.
