    "Ridgewood only has one semi-satisfactory aspect:athletics. Even kids with athletic scholarships or talent from here end up going to community colleges, or colleges that need to provide commercials to get people to go there."

    "As a parent who grew up in the catholic school system, including a catholic university, I was very hesitant to send my child to Ridgewood. It is one of the best decisions I have ever made. While not perfect, Ridgewood has numerous aspects which I am very impressed. First, the teachers here truly care about these kids. The are very accessible, always returning my emails very quickly and offering students time for extra help. These teachers want students to succeed. Help is always available for students, the students however, need to act like young adults and admit when they need help. I am also very impressed with the classes. The honors classes have stimulated these students to make it into top ranking universities like Harvard and Yale. Ridgewood's curriculum is tough. Straight B's won't get you on the honor roll, you need at least a 3.5 GPA. Non honor kids also are given opportunities to figure out which future path they might take. Ridgewood works with Triton junior college for many career classes such automotive or culinary. The high school also has offerings in CADCAM and construction principles. Finally, the school is beautiful! It is newly renovated and state of the art!"

    "This school has tried to make strides but has failed. The money they get goes into athletic buildings, fields and scoreboards and is not addressing the below state average academics. The school board needs to invest more time in what they can do to turn this around and less on the sports. The school board needs to take control of this place and find out why there is fiscal appropriations going to sports and not else where."

    "That schools gets worse and worse each year. I hate to admit it but I think I'm actually going to move, so my child can go to a better school."
