  • First of all, this school is beautiful from the outside but rotten from the inside. We recently move to polk county and I'm so disappointed with the high schools in the area. When I went to this school to enrolled my kid. I said to my daughter it looks like a good school. But when she started complaining I said well she'll get use to it. But then she said to me that she was feeling that she was wasting her time and that she wanted another school, I ask her what was wrong, And she said , Well the teacher dont do anything, they students dont respect the teachers, the (...) was just there for decoration. I was impressed. If all of you would hear her experience in this school you will go today and withdrawa your child. And please If some one of the Board of education reads this, please review personally this school. It's not fair for the students. I had to take my daughter to Florida Virtual School because she refuse to go back there. Oh and the lunch sucks! PLEASE! DO and AUDITORY to this school. And change the administration for one that could manage those kids & teachers.

  • This school is one of the best in the area. From campus, athletics, clubs, and academics. Ridge Community has much to offer. Being a junior in this school I am doing very well thanks to the teachers, the extra help, and most of all the guidance. The Principal is best principal even though these are her first years in the position she is doing an awesome job. she does not only look at one particular thing she looks at the picture as a whole.
