Ridgefield is an answer to our prayers. 5 stars in all categories. A true positive, Christian environment.

Ridgefield Christian is such a wonderful school for my children. It is a loving, safe environment. I think they will learn valuable lessons to carry with them throughout their lives. We are so lucky to have this school in our town!

Ridgefield is a wonderful school with caring and professional teachers and staff who are committed to helping students grow both academically and spiritually. I cannot put a dollar amount on the academic education and character training that they are receiving everyday when they go to school. I have had two children graduate from Ridgefield and they were well prepared for college and have been very successful. I still have children attending the school and they love their school and classmates. I am thankful for Ridgefield and the wonderful influence that the school has had on my family!

I am in my fifth year teaching at Ridgefield Christian School. I have two granddaughters attending this school. I could not be more satisfied with their education. Every teacher personifies an educator that cares. Both my granddaughters have excelled at RCS. As a teacher, I have Never found a school system that puts children first. I have seen the administrator do whatever is required of him. I have seen him conduct himself as a professional and I have seen him relate to every child on campus. He has prayed with and for students and faculty. Yes, there are fundraisers. I have never seen any student pressured into giving money. In the twenty two years working in a public school I saw many fundraisers. If I did not teach here I would still send my grand children here.

I was a student at RCS for 7 years. In those seven years I had my ups and downs, but ultimately, I have come to the conclusion that if I had chidren they would most likely not attend this school. Due to disiplinary inequalities among the student population (I was one of the lucky ones who had a decent experience), baffling inadaquacies in the mathmatics department, and an EXTREMEMLY high turnover rate of science teachers (There is one science teacher for the senior high and I had 5 different teachers in 6 years, the administrator has now taken on the job of science teacher and I hear he's great at it, but he has other responsbilities). While there are some great teachers and great people at Ridgefield I feel the truth should be revealed. It is a hghly political envirnment that I feel is unsatisfactory for a child's future.

I have been at Ridgefield since kindergarden and I think that even though we are a small school we make a lasting impression on other schools. I am now in the seventh grade and I have found that the teacher really care about thier students. The classes are interesting and fun for the whole group. My teachers this year help explane all my questions and help me to understand them in a fascinating way. I love where I go to school I love that all the classes are small because the teacher can spend more time teaching and explaning the material to us. I will never want to go to any other school because Ridgefield is where my home is.

RCS is a great school filled with wonderful teachers who care for our children. Highly recommended to those families that encourage a daily walk with the Lord.

We are so happy at Ridgefield. The Christian environment and the academic excellence are by far the best in Jonesboro. The teachers are wonderful. The class size is smaller which enables the students to learn more and the teachers to lead the class more effectively. There are a lot of activities the students can participate in as well. Yes, it does cost money - BUT consider it as an investment in your child's spiritual, academic, and emotional well-being and future.

Wonderful school ~ excellent, caring teachers. Children are well-behaved. Discipline is not an issue at RCS, because they do not have to put up with unruly children. Great Christian environment.

I am in my fifth year at Ridgefield Christian, I would not recommend the school to anyone. I have had teachers that are absolutely horrible and do not treat the kids right. This school definitely cares more about money than the students. We have to give extra money just to wear jeans on some days. They do not offer good extracurricular activities, and my grade only got two electives this year, choir and consumer education. I would not recommend this school to anyone.

My high school children have been at Ridgefield since Kindergarten and I am extremely pleased. RCS doesn't shelter its students from the world, but strengthens them for it. The school is expanding in both size and offerings, everyone feels like part of a family, and we are truely blessed to be a part of it.

My child has been attending this school since pre-k and he loves it, this school is wonderful and I would recommend it to anyone. There are great teachers and I love the fact that there are small classes, and that there is more one on one time for each child. These teachers truly care about our children and there education.

I would not recommend this school because it gives the impression that it cares more about funding than education. I ask you, where are their test scores? Why wouldn't they share this information with us, but instead offer information about tuition and fundraising obligations? This is definitely a red flag from my perspective.

Disappointing. Our teacher has exhibited precious little if any control over her classroom of just 12 students. Our straight 'A' child has had his grades plummet and we have been unable to get the teacher or school to really care. They have however given considerable care and time to their fundraisers, even to the point of offering the children a free day off of school if they sell enough items. What a wonderful lesson they have taught my child; if you hawk enough you can buy your way out of school and education isn't really all that important since it has a price on it. I would not recommend this school to anyone.

Hi, I think Ridgefield is a great school. Plus, we have loving caring teachers, while Im here I'd like to add my thanks to God and Ms Fran Tomilnson, 4th grade teacher, and Mrs. Tonjia Miles and Ms Jeri Sue Williams, both great 6th grade teachers. This year I'm Going to go into the 7th grade and I cant wait. It will be so cool. I love Ridgefield and Mr.Canada is the administrater. If you want to sign your child up to go to Ridgefield call their number (I dont know that) and ask for Ms Michell she is the secratery. God Bless, Jake W.
