    "We moved our daughter from public school to Ridgefield Academy and could not be happier. The individual attention that they provide each student is wonderful. Her teachers quickly got her up to speed with the other students and her learning progressed at an amazing level. The focus on special subjects - foreign language, science, music, drama, etc. has been a favorite part of our daughter's experience at RA. We appreciate he fact that everyone eats in the cafeteria (no packed lunches allowed) and they focus on healthy choices, locally grown food and exposing children to a variety of international dishes. Plus, there is a staff member at each lunch table to facilitate conversation and remind them of good manners. These are just a few of the highlights...I encourage you to visit and see if RA is a good fit for your family. It certainly is for ours!"

    "This school is an embarrassment. It's teachers lack discipline, respect, and trustworthiness. I have been going here since preschool, and after 4th grade the school becomes a joke. The teachers pick on kids, have favorites, and stack us with homework that we cannot keep up on. It's "cafeteria" is a disgrace. It is the most revolting place I have even stepped into. They don't even bother to wash anything, but just sprinkle water on top and call it clean. The schools bio says a bunch of fancy words and "cheap" prices. I highly recommend that you waist your hard earned money somewhere else."

    "Phenomenal school! Curriculum is challenging but not overwhelming. Students are encouraged to work hard - significant homework starting relatively early compared to public school. RA kids are well-prepared to move on to HS. Faculty is outstanding, particularly 7th/ 8th. Principals are excellent & beloved by the kids. My child has gone through the entire program from preschool to 8th grade, and we couldn't be happier -- our youngest is now in the lower school and absolutely loves it. There has been great improvement in the transitions between grades, and more focus on preparing students for the next step (whether in the school or moving on beyond RA.) The headmaster knows virtually every child by name, and is involved, effective, and caring. The kids love him, and the parents I know truly value his contribution to the school. We have had one or two "bad" teachers, but that's true anywhere. Arts programs are improving, but both the music and drama programs are really in their infancy. We've found the secondary school placement to be wonderful -- they really want to see your child wind up in the right high school. We have been thrilled with RA. Can't rave enough!!!"

    "I wish I found Ridgefield Academy sooner! My youngest of 3 started in Kindergarten and we couldn't be happier. The education, nurturing and moral values instilled are the finest we have ever come across. We have 2 older children and there other schools didn't compare to Ridgefield Academy. We also travel 1/2 hour to school and love the school tremendously."
