This school is so focused about the uniform policy and not so much as academics. My child does have great grades, but a teacher Mr. Stuart takes kids jackets and nit pick about small this instead if just teaching. If these kids gets their jackets taken in the midst of the weather is Ridgewood going to pay for my child's doctors bills. I don't think so. If they provide bags for the kids that are in sports to carry around their things then there wouldn't be a problem. Nevertheless some parents can't afford to buy a specific color of jacket or special bag for these kids. Focus more on academics and not the small stuff that may keep a child from learning.

Okay so I went to Ridgewood and played basketball and made straight A's. Every school can be considered a 'bad school', but its just who you have out with and what you do. I need these parents to stop saying its a bad school because its not the school its the students who get in trouble and act like they didn't do anything!

The problem at this school is not the teachers or the administration it is the students and more importantly their parents. There is fist fighting during class. My daughter has had her purse and shoes stolen and the kids won't get on the buses in the afternoon. These children have no home training, respect and of course no fear of punishment. It scares me to think that these kids are America's future. We are in serious trouble.

This school is a very terrible school. It is the worst school i have ever gone to every year i've been here(which is 3)all the teachers except for a very few just take 5 minutes to explain the lesson and give you a worksheet or a page out of the book and tell you to do it. And the school is very undisiplinary.Most teachers just send kids out of class for no reason,and when kids really do things bad they don't get punished correctly. Well i would never ever recommend this very bad school to anyone ever.

I have not yet had an opportunity to get as involved as I would like at Ridgewood, but hope to do so in the coming weeks as I back off of my crazy work schedule. This is my son's first year at Ridgewood and so far my he has been very happy as a 7th grader. I would like to have more communication from the teachers at the school. Once a week I go through my son's daily binder that he carries to every class and I have found a note or something that I needed to sign and return each time, but no one has ever contacted me to find out why I haven't signed and returned them. I realize the teachers are busy, but if its not important enough for you to get it back, then please don't ask that I sign it. Hopefully, it will get better.

Ridgewood is evolving into a even better school. The administration and teachers work hard to educate all students. the school has been blessed to receive lots of technology to incorporate in the classroom. The raider faculty staff and student body have high parental involvement in every aspect of the school.

Ridgewood is a horrible school. The teachers and administration seem to care more about test scores than about the students learning the material. I believe that the test scores reflect the fledging academic program of this school. I also noticed that their is a lack of concern for the students on behalf of the teachers and administration. There needs to be a change in the leadership at this school for it tio once again be viable.

This is the worst school i have ever been to. I wouldn't want any parent's child to go to this school. Our principal does abosolutely nothing. Our student council exists but doesn't really do anything. The teachers are more focused on our behavior than helping us advance to the next grade. Our variety of electives isn't even that great.I belive if Ridgewood can actually live up to it's name of a blue ribbon school it needs to get on the ball.I will never experience a school like this ever again. I belive there are only a handful of selected teachers at this school that care about us.

This is on of the worst schools out there. The only way you are exepted there is if your kiss up to everyone. I am constinly in trouble because of my apperence. All this school cares about is sports in which they are not very good at. Do not send you child to this school.

This is one of the worst schools I have ever been involved with. The teacher/principal involvement is terrible. I have yet to meet one staff member there that is not rude or evasive. I will never recommend this school to anybody..especially to those who wish for their child to recieve a real education. Please consider other school districts.
