    "The best of the best. We looked at many schools, including private schools and when we walked into the Ridgeland schools, we felt at home. Academics is a top priority for our kids and they have performed in the 95%til on national standardized tests, assuring us about the outstanding opportunities here. Teachers respond quickly to parents, stay after school to help, lead clubs, and set a tone of inclusiveness. Small enough that the students feel like they are an important part of the community;big enough to offer a wide variety of AP and advanced classes. Lots of options for all students. 96% go on to college. RHS student won National Poetry Out Loud competition in 2012. Alma mater of 2012 Olympian in, Track and Field."

    "The new (as of this spring 2012) principal is a massive improvement over the one that was there (see the older comment about the previous person - I agree with that poster). The new principal actually cares about ALL the students, including the ones struggling. If your kid has an IEP though, beware. Expectations are in the toilet (D's are considered all they need to help your kid get to which I asked where in IDEA does it say this?). Not only that it takes considerable advocating to have accommodations for mainstreamed kids in the classrooms actually implemented on a regular basis. It is really frustrating."

    "I am so happy we chose Ridgeland!!!! We transferred from a larger system where the multiple elementary schools join together into a 6A middle school then high school. The elementary school was wonderful. Teachers helped my son and his peers to have a love of learning. When they all moved to middle school and mixed with the students from other schools, the social situation was almost miserable. There were many cliques and as my son describes "the social network was very complex". He just wanted to learn in a safe environment. Moving to Ridgeland, changed his life. We started at Olde Towne in the 8th grade and are now finishing our first year at Ridgeland High. Ridgeland allows students to particiapate in multiple sports, academics and activities. It is common the see band members marching in their football pads or cheerleading uniforms. I believe this prevents the "cliques". Cheerleaders, football players, soccer players, band members and academic/volunteer clubs are all filled with students from many different areas. So it's a family where everyone can find a place to fit in. And like a small town where you can have the same best friend from 1st grade to 12th to grow up with."

    "WOW- All I can say is that it's ALWAYS a GREAT day to be a TITAN!! The Staff and administrators have always talked with me about issues that I may have had, or in the few instances that my children have had, the door is always open to students if they need someone to talk to, and discipline is fair and evenly handed out- I have had more than one occasion to work with the administrators on any number of issues, some school related, some not- and they have always seemed as if their concern was genuine, I have never felt "put off" by them, nor have I ever felt like my concerns (as few as they may have been) were not being heard! I have always felt like my children are in the BEST place they could possibly be, and the education they are getting is wonderful, and thorough- Ridgeland has found the perfect balance of academics and good times- they give the students a well rounded place to gain their education, and I am so happy and BLESSED to be a TITAN MOM!!!"

    "Overall the school is a great place for students. However, the principal and certain teacher(s) is/are prone to be pre-judgmental (biased) against certain kids. This is especially true if you rchild makes a mistakes early in the school year, they are quickly branded, even if they are excelling in all other classes. The principal is hotheaded and on multiple occasions has hung up on a parent when the discussion is not going to his liking. Overlook the principal and advise your kids to walked carefully because if they can steer clear of these isolated problems the ywill truly enjoy Ridgeland."
