There are honestly some amazing teachers at this school that try so hard for their students, however the biggest issue I've seen is the lack of good counselors. I was having an issue with something and went to the counselors to talk it out. Instead all I got was a suggestion to see someone else and this look from the counselor that made me feel like i was crazy. This really bugged me as I did skip out in a class just to be told to go somewhere else. Also, this school is so bland and seems to have no traditions of its own. And as it was previously mentioned, it seems dress code doesn't apply to cheerleaders and football players get all the attention even though the team is horrendous. Fine arts are extremely important and don't get as much attention and announcements as football does. I'm grateful for those teachers that do try but the couselors haven't seemed to be helping anyone they don't already know.

When River Ridge High School opened in 2009, I was excited that my kids would be going to a brand new school and optimistic that it would draw great teachers and coaches that would want to work at a brand new school, with brand new resources, and be part of laying a great foundation for future success. But after, 5 years in existence, River Ridge just hasn't lived up to expectations. Instead of drawing great teachers, its a haven for marginal clock watchers that are essetnailly stop gaps, because the administration is either incapable of hiring quality teachers or just doesn't care. My kids have endured too many teachers that are incompetent, overwhelmed, and disinterested; in any other professional they would be fighting for their jobs. If you want your kid to actual learn something to prepare for college, I sugges you look elsewhere, unless you feel like spending your own money on tutoring.

As a Parent I loved the school.Teachers are top notch at keeping parents informed. As for the Principal Leadership, most are awesome but one of the administration team should look for other employment. It was very obvious he is there for a paycheck. Parental involvement gets 4 stars as I do not see many parents supporting the school as there could be. This is a great new addition to the county and hope year #6 is even better for the staff and students than all the prior years. One area that could use improvement is the school drop lane. I would like to see the school do a better job at not allowing people to drive on the left side to form a second line to drop of kids. This is dangerous to the kids and to the drivers in the right lane.

What an awful school. Please do not send your child there. I graduated from there last year. They must have found the staff from downtown Atlanta and said hey you want to teach here. The staff is about is rude as they can get. The principle doesn't care about you if you're not a football player. I hate telling people I went there because it is such an awful school. If you're "popular" the teacher will pretty much take the test for you. Don't worry there is no dress code for cheerleaders. I was miserable every second I was there. The teachers will pick favorites so be sure to be it. Oh and during lunch if you need to go to the bathroom you have the magnet girl and boys passes. You may only use the restroom 3 times a week once a day (they have a chart). I would not recommend this school, unless you want your child to come home miserable everyday. Beware.

This school is AMAZING. I have been going to River Ridge for 3 years and I love it. All my teachers are outstanding and are well rehearsed in what they're teaching. The only thing I can think of that this school could improve on is athletics. We're good in a few sports like volleyball, tennis, track, and softball. But besides that...we suck. But a good education is more important than sports. Hope this helps!

Great school. They seem to make education fun. Not to sure about the principal. He cares for the football and other major sports, but doesn'e support the Fine arts. I don't think this is fair.
