Continuing on, if one merely takes the general education courses and the simplest electives, no, they will not be challenged; that's common sense! Anyways, Ridgemont is a school that is full of potential! If people could see that as much as I do, then the state funding may increase so that the teachers have more resources so that they won't have to teach to the tests anymore! Nonetheless, I had an excellent experience at Ridgemont and it did significantly help me prepare for college! There is a plethora of resources available to those who attend Ridgemont if they just reach out and grab it! The teachers really do care! The AP English program is so much fun! It really helped me prepare for decoding poetry and literature in college! Lastly, the FFA program is amazing!! The new teacher really turned it around and it's nationally ranked now!

I went to Ridgemont for all 4 years of high school and would be lying if I said I enjoyed every moment. The school is small, understaffed, and definately underfunded. You can complain about the courses offered; however when you have 2 teachers for each subject who are expected to teach freshmen-seniors it's no wonder they have no time to offer anything but the required classes. Parents can complain about the resources but the next time the school tries to pass a levey you're the first to vote 'no' on it. How can you expect your children to succeed in a school that has insufficient funds?

I recently graduated from Ridgemont and this school is not as horrible as people are making it out to be. The teachers do their best to help students be better prepared for life, and they give all the attention they can to help us. The academics may not be spectacular, but they do prepare us. If anything, it is parent's fault why students don't succeed. I have seen many students not do anything in class and their parents don't seem to care. Ridgemont does as much as it can with what they have. Sports may not be great here, but they do help better prepare the kids for life. There may also be a shortage of courses offered, but that's only because that is what teachers here are licensed in. All in all, a good school for the resources availible.

This is a small school in which one would think that there would be better one on one assistance but it is definately not the case here. The school board is more concerned with giving the administration raises every year as opposed to raising teachers salaries and trying to keep the good teachers in the district instead of letting them slip away to neighboring schools. Our children deserve so much more than they are receiving. The academics leave alot to be desired and the athletics are worse yet!

My biggest concern is with the interaction of the Junior High and the High School students, as they are in the same building. My second concern is with the quality of education and the limited courses offered. Small schools don't necessarily mean your child will get more attention. In the past teachers have been hired for what they can do as a coach instead of what they can do in the classroom. As a result the students are ill-prepared for further schooling, testing and challenges of everyday life. By the way our sport records stink for the most part.
