Ridgeview Middle School 1

We had a totally unsatisfactory experience at this school. Most of the teachers are good (with the exception of a rare few). The principal is deliberately uncooperative. She goes out of her way to make even the simplest problem impossible to solve without going over her head. She spends a lot of time throwing up barriers instead of trying be be helpful and constructive. The guidance counselor is equally difficult to deal with. She seems unqualified for her position and should not be counseling young people regarding difficult situations. The only shining star in the administrative office is the assistant principal. He truly cares about the students but his hands are tied so his positive impact is limited given the current leadership.

I had a parent conference and have to admit it was the worst experience at a school I have ever had. Instead of feeling like things were resolved, the other parents had the opportunity to be loud and were allowed to be so in a threatening mannor on school property. Was not a rational nor pleasant experience at all! I had hopes that meeting with the principal would be a pleasant experience. It simply was not. So no wonder so many things get out of order when there is no one to really talk to, about legitament concerns. I do not suggest this place if you ever have any direct issues. I realize schools do not have to get involved with students lives, which I was told this exact quote by the principal but the negativity shown through 100 percent as a part of why I am writing this. Advocacy is not a strong suit at this school. Nor helping to find the means to an end is not possible, if it comes to any kind of conference!

Ridgeview MS is the worst school I have ever delt with. They LOST my child one day and then shoved it under the rug. They played with a 13 yr old boys head. The teacher took a person vendetta against my son. I wouldnt send your child to this school, not if you care about their safety.

This school doesn't really permit many things at all, the principal isn't very fair. There is a lot of room for improvement to be made. The curriculum is falling behind, and in many classes, the education doesn't challenge many students.

The vice principle is annoying but every thing else is okay. P.S. Mrs. Wilkinson is the best teacher ever!

I've attended Ridgeview Middle School for three years and recently graduated feeling fully prepared for high school. The teachers, I feel, are probably the best part of this school, because they trully have knowledge of the subject that they are teaching. Most of them have taught here for a long time. Also, this school offers lots of advanced classes that are eligible for high school credit. In addition to that, there's tons of athletic and academic activities, like Debate Team, Orchestra, and Ski Club. However, I also feel that the environment is not as good as it should be. Nevertheless, I would recommend this school to anyone looking for a school filled with lots of opportunities.
