    "This school is on the rise. The athletic facility is amazing, so nice even pro footballs teams have used it for practice before playing the Bears. The new principal is very good too, coming from Stevenson a top ranking High School. I am very happy with the school and it's progression and would not hesitate to send all three of my kids here."

    "I am very impressed with This school. I have family that attend Main South H.S. in Park Ridge and a child that currently attends Ridgewood and Ridgewood is a very good school. This H.S. offers a wide array of AP classes and some very tough Honors courses that my child has found to be very beneficial. Yes, maybe Main South offers a few more AP courses but it also offers more students (2,600+) and sometimes more problems. Ridgewood is a small/safe school and if you and your child want to succeed, he/she will be given every opportunity. Any parent or student that suggests otherwise is simply uneducated, bitter, or just cynical. I know of kids both past and present who have attended Ridgewood and have had every opportunity to shine while moving on to top Universities like MIT, Yale, and Harvard. When reviewing sites like this, you must consider the source and with that said, I would suggest considering the quality of these reviews and maybe this site should also consider removing some of them as well. Meaningless digs do nothing but make our neighborhood and community look silly and absurd. I hope this helps you."

    "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."
