  • it's Okay, but could be better. Still improving. I didn't get much counseling about courses or college. I guess I don't matter that much.

  • I attended River Ridge High School and Middle school.Class of 2000. I thought that this school had its ups and downs or pros and cons. A lot of my teachers knew exactly what they were doing and some of them, well, jumped around too much. As a school with an auditorium that hosts a lot of West Pasco's plays and such, I think that River Ridge had a great Arts Program. Whatever class you were wanting to attend, you didn't seem to have a problem getting into. I think the teachers could be more hands-on with their students, but maybe that has changed. Overall, I think it's a good school, as the grade "B" reflects.
