I like the amount of classes and clubs offered here at school. There is a wide variety of extra-curriculars and other activities at the school, which I am very grateful for. Most aspects of school are average, though student behavior among peers and teachers could definitely be improved. I would like to see a wider range of diversity among the school for sure. A lot of students here are very narrow-minded and it would benefit them to see that there is a world outside of people with their exact profile. I think this school has prepared me fairly well for college, but there could definitely be improvement in that area.

It is a great school! All of the teachers enjoy assisting the students. Our school is very safe. They have cameras in the locker bays and the hallways and after 8 o'clock in the morning, all of the doors lock and you have to press a button with a camera on it to come in. The principal is great! He has a no phone policy so students can learn with distractions. The no phone policy is where you put your phone in your locker or in the basket the teacher has for you and you get it back after class is over. It is a great school and I high recommend it!
South Ripley High School is a warm, welcoming school. The staff and students make you feeel like a part of a family. The teachers push you in order to prepare you for your future. The athletics are supported not only in the school setting but also by the parents and community. I have learned and lot and grown as a student while at South Ripley.
