  • I am not very happy with this school. My child has always made excellent grades, K-8, now all of a sudden, he is failing, he does not understand the material and can't get any help. I am now having to hire a tutor to try and fix what he has missed this year.

  • I would like to state that the staff and administration is very lax in their knowledge of regulations and in notifying parents as to their individual progress. I have a granddaughter that was informed she could not walk with her class at her graduation cermony. She has all of her credits, however she seems to have failed one subject catagory on the state exam. She has not even taken this course in school. Her mother, myself, and my granddaughter is very upset about this! I think she should be able to walk!!!!! I also think it is very sad that the student has to pay for her certificate and a place to receive it after she has earned it! Sorry way to run a school!!!!!!!!

  • Great teachers, great staff, highly underated school. My 3 daughters have done well there. One has graduated, is now an LPN, one will graduate this year, and going to college in the fall, and the other in 2 years. They are having to add on to the school as there are some portables being used, but the school district is growing so much each year that they had to. Ridgeland also has plenty of clubs and outstanding sports teams.
