    "Overall, a solid school with high standards. We moved to Ridgefield because of the reputation of the public schools, but were disappointed by big class size, uninspired curriculum, and reality that wasn't as good as advertised. Love RA's small community feel, whole child philosophy, and ability to prepare our kids for high school; they are a year ahead of their public school counterparts now. Not cheap, but worth it!"

    "My husband and I were looking for a school where our child would feel safe to take risks, love learning, be encouraged by her teachers, and be challenged to be her best. This school touched on all of those things. I cannot say enough about the wonderful teachers and the way they help each student succeed. It is a wonderful, warm, and nurturing community where children of all abilities thrive. Love, love, love this school!"

    "The teachers at Ridgefield Academy genuinely care about each child's success. They make themselves available to help their students and go above and beyond in making sure that every child is challenged. I loved seeing the passion the teachers have, and my child absolutely love coming to school and thrived here. It's a terrific community!"

    "Many teachers are uncertified and have never taught anywhere else. I always got the feeling they were under the gun to get kids to produce a certain kind of result. There are several faculty members who have histories of bullying students or being rude to parents and they are allowed to stay."

    "I would never choose this school again if I were to start over. I would homeschool my child first. The level of work expected is inappropriately difficult (and I have a gifted child who handled it, but that does not make it appropriate.) Many of the teachers are uncertified and kind of winging it. A few teachers have histories of bullying students and are allowed to stay. Children of big donors who behave horribly go undisciplined. RA pushes graduates to boarding schools and to independent day schools over an hour away for high school because there simply aren't enough spots in local day schools for RA graduates."
