  • The homework load was a bit much, but I had no complaints about any teacher that administrated there. The ones I did, were eventually laid off. Athletics are decent considering the size of the school and security has never been an issue. I would like to see more funding go towards programs like renaissance and AP courses.

  • Ripon High School is a great school. I love the teachers and have nothing but positive things to say. I can't believe a parent would pull their kid out of a school because of rumors (referencing another parents description). Think for yourself!

  • This is a great school! I will gladly send all of my children to this school and to this district. Those that don't agree probably wouldn't be happy with any school.

  • Ripon High is a very low-quality school. As a parent, i pulled my child out of there the second i learned about the teachers and power-hungry administration. The school is headed down a wrong path and i want nothing to do so, and i suggest you do the same

  • Ripon High needs to work to keep qualified, experienced teachers in the classrooms. They also need to offer more AP classes.

  • The kids at this school are very disrespectful. Something has to be done about it. Discipline needs to be supported by Administrators. I am tired of being treated in this manner. Kids need to take responsibility for themselves and grow up!

  • This school needs to update their technology plan, and try to do something about its pitiful use of technology. If our illustrious administration would support teachers in this matter, something might actually be accomplished.

  • This school needs to support its teachers. The more this occurs, the better kids will learn.
