North Ridgeville as a whole is a rapid growing town that was once a great and safe place to live. As of now, the schools are overloaded and the Board is Corrupt. There's a huge bullying issue within the school system that they refuse to deal with, only cover it up with the "Ranger Strong Program (s)." It has been discovered that favorites are played amongst teachers, staff and wealthier-off families: as well as, those in powerful positions that cover up for the wrong doer because of their relations with the wrong-doer instead of doing what's right. The kids are also punished for the outrageous school fees and the parents un-ability to pay. The City officials are good and do what they can with the growth and the PD is some of the best we've seen.

North Ridgeville is growing suburb that manages to maintain a small-town feel. It has a the perks of being in a central location between Elyria and North Olmsted while being distant enough from the more modern areas to posses a certain charm. Small and large business owners alike will thrive here. The residents mostly keep to themselves, but are very kind. Aside from the sound of traffic on 83, this town is very quiet and has a shockingly low crime rate. Although North Ridgeville does not have a recreational center, the many programs and services offered by the Parks and Recreation Commission provide plenty of opportunity for learning and wellness.
The city itself is a wreck. There is always an absurd amount of construction everywhere and there’s dumpy plazas left amidst new buildings. The school system is good because the teachers genuinely care, but the administrators have no backbone.
