    "I completed all 4 years here. The teachers are the best part of Mt. Ridge. They really get to know you on a personal level. They are more interested on the student, rather than "doing" their job. They really prepare you for the challenge of college and or career field you enter after high school."

    "My experience at Mountain Ridge High school was fair. I had many teachers who devoted an abundance of time and effort to assisting me in my academics. However, Mountain Ridge High School's administration needs to work on listening to students' complaints. I know mulitple students and parents who have reported inappropriate actions done by teachers and the principal and administration chose to ignore these, putting all students in danger. Mountain Ridge has relatively decent academics and sports teams, however, sports are looked at as much more important than academics. Most teachers and the administration focus too much on sports and not enough on academics. Those who excel academically are looked at as "less than" compared to the schools athletes. Mountain Ridge High School definitely needs an entirely new administration in order to restore morals and good standing within the community."

    "The teachers care about your school performance, they become your friends. The education I received here was above and beyond the average experience."

    "My experience though out high school has been rather interesting. I have learned some academically but not as much as I feel I should have. The one class I have learned the most in is English. I have excelled in the class. I was able to be placed into College English and Speech for my senior year. I no longer excel in math class. The teachers don't teach the class, they just place the information on the screen in the front of the class and expect us to understand. My tenth grade year my teacher did not really teach. My eleventh grade year we didn't do anything in the class. This is not an exaggeration. Because of this class my math skills have diminished drastically. My twelfth grade year started off on the correct foot. I decided to take a Honors Trigonometry and Pre-Calculus class. I had to drop the class.I am now without a math class. Something that needs to change are the people that are employed in certain subjects throughout the school."

    "Mountain Ridge is a great place to get an education. Its facilities are new, and its teachers are helpful and knowledgeable. There aren't too many clubs to participate in, besides few academic clubs. Since its a local area where the demographics are predominantly white, the school isn't too diverse either - though there is some diversity."
