Excellent ground to sow seeds. Before moving here from California I searched the Houston area for the best high school for daughter to attend, then choose where we would live.

Posted May 18, 2011

Great School and the teachers and staff there are outstanding!!! I was so worried about my daughter when the district zoned us for Ridgepoint. I was insistent upon her attending Hightower because of its academies and the way it prepares the students for higher learning. Well I had an oppurtunity to visit Hightower and I am glad that my daughter attends Ridgepoint. The school is over crowded. The atmosphere of the schoo overalll is not condusive to academic success, although in the academies they are striving. Ridgepoint provides tje right amount of balance, so that the students can perform and be more productive. Hopefully down the line Ridgepoint will have its own academies., and prayerfull the district will not change my current zoning. I love this school and my daughter does as well. Receives a 10 out of 10. would higly recommend.
