Ridgway Christian School is an amazing school with a very friendly environment and a very fast paced curriculum that challenges its students to reach the highest of their potential. While it is a very advanced school it offers many opportunities for students to get extra help in areas they struggle in. It is also a very close knit school, everyone knows everyone and its a very comfortable learning environment.
This is the only school of its kind within the greater Jefferson county area. Furthermore, the staff is well equipped to educate your child from the preschool age as far as 12th grade. The school is not expensive for the quality of the education. Aditionally, the staff holds students to higher standards than most of the surrounding schools. The high school is college prepatory in fashion and has an excellent counselor. Most importantly, the curriculum is thought from the christian perspective. You will not see a more God and family oriented school in the area.
Its not necessary to be rude to anyone. Information can be given without giving attitude. this school is very rude an dthe teachers are not all certified. This information was obtained at the state department. The law does not require them to be.....
Rude is very true and phone calls to the academic counselor went unanswered for a whole month. I left numerous messages as well as my phone so we could discuss my childs academic plan. Very unprofessional!
This school is not funded 'real well' because tuition rates are not set to make money, they are set to allow parents who truly want a quality education for their students to be one they can afford. The adminstration is not terrible and rude, but holds high standards for students, staff and faculty. This level of excellence is not common in this city and that is why it is the way it is.
Our 2 girls attend Ridgway Christian and I know it is the best of all the schools in Pine Bluff. I never worry about drugs being given to my girls and they are really learning more about the BIble than they do in church. They are making really good grades even with the curriculum they are dealing with. It is costly but well worth it when you know that your children are going to come home safe. Also the teachers that I know are truly Christian Women. They live what they teach. I would highly recommend this school to anyone.
An excellent school for academics. If you want a bunch of extracurricular activities, however, it's not for you. By the way, it goes up to the 9th grade, and a 10th and 11th will be added for the 2008-2009 school year. The lower classes have a lot of students, but the higher ones have fewer. There are 7 in my class.
This school has provided our child with things money cannot buy; a loving, structured, Christian learning environment by dedicated teaching professionals. In addition to the environment, she scored two grades higher on her academic testing last year.
