Ridgeway High School sucks. I am an AP/IB student, and I feel as if they are treated quite unfairly. Honors students are given piles of summer homework, and the standard students have none. Tests for difficult subjects are given on the first day of class, and books are given to the Honors/IB students BEFORE lockers are issued. There are three flights of stairs, and carrying heavy books is really painful. When issues are discussed with admin, the problems are simply brushed off. I suggest going to a much more student friendly school. Also, the peers are very disruptive and unruly. That might be common, however sometimes enough is enough. Think twice about going to Ridgeway.

Ridgeway High School is a great school, academically speaking, and has great teachers. However, they have apartment complexes right outside of the school so there are some overcrowding problems. Also, there are few 'misguided' individuals at this school (i.e: gangs, drugs, pranksters... etc.) but overall the people there are cool. The teachers here are very well qualified for the job and we have an outstanding band director (Mr. Chris Piecuch), choir director (Dr. Jeff Brewer), orchestra conductor (Ms. Karla Phillips), drama/creative writing teacher (Ms. Julie Watson) and art teacher. If your child is very active in sports (especially lacrosse or basketball) or the fine arts, or is an overall great student, Ridgeway is the school to look at. I hope that the media does not curve your view of our school, because it is indeed one of the finest Memphis City Schools.

RHS is a great school academics wise.In other prospect the school is get worst. Sports u can get recognized if u are a favor. Play the player because of thier skills. Not because of your grade level. I wish yall the best this year.

This was an excellent school, but there have been recent changes in the faculty, staff, and students. RHS was once the best schools in the city, period. Although it's declining slowly, it's still the best public school in the city with the highest graduation and attendance rates. This school also has the best choirs in West Tennessee. If you really want to hear a choir, stop by Ridgeway and see Dr. Brewer and the Choirs.

Well i have gone to Ridgeway for 3 years now and each year it is getting worse. Mr Long has messed up alot of the traditions that the students have and the teachers have. It is a great school for acadamics. The teachers are all involved in helping if you ask for help.

I am currently alumni of ridgeway highschool. I was displaced by hurricane Katrina and came from a private school in new orleans. new orleans private schools are equivilant to a ridgeway education. There are honors courses and AP courses.rigdeway has had several national merit finalists and the seniors have had over 100,000 in scholarships. Ridgeway is an excellent school, to prepare for college. I would rate it one of the best memphis city schools.
