Ridge View High School 3

My daughter is in her Senior year at this school. The most disappointing thing about this school is the administration. Every single year I have had to go back into the school and fight for schedule changes. I can understand that issues arise, but every year is unacceptable. I think they just give out diplomas because I know that students can not honestly get the required classes that they need. What school seriously allows a child to have four study halls on their schedule that they don't recieve credit for. Just be prepared to spend every year in guidance advocating for your child and their schedule.

I am a senior at Ridge view high school, and I love it here. We're starting two new magnet programs this school year, and we're opening a new computer lab. The art department of the school is excellent, the library is huge, and the sports programs are great. The only issue I really have with the school is the size. There are a ton of freshman coming in this school year, and there really isn't enough space for all of us. They need to add on to the school because I don't think I want to spend another school year stuck in the portables.

I am a student at Ridge View and i transferd here from Weisbaden, Germany. The homework is a bit overwelming at times but then again thyats just high school. The library is huge and they offer wonderful art classes and after school sports! The lunch food is great and the way the school is shaped, your not likely to get lost on the first day! Hope this helps.

RV is a good school. A little small but has great programs. The teachers are good, but there are some that aren't. Overall 4/5

I have two children that currently attend RV. OK school, but way too overpopulated. They're up to 2400 students now! The quality of the children's education is greatly suffering. The majority of the faculty and staff is friendly and willing to help, but there are few that are questionable.
