Very poor. This school also has a problem with drugs and vaping and the administration admits it.

Overall, with six years in this school and two graduates from RRHS, both of my children were college ready, but they could have been even more prepared. Both are well on their way to great careers and higher education now. There used to be strong favoritism within the counselors/students, but I believe that has gone away a couple of years ago. There was also strong favoritism with some coaches (not all) and that is a shame. I feel my children received a fair/good education at RRHS. Had I known what I do now, I may have pushed for a different route with public education as a whole, but I cannot complain too much because I feel the education and experience received was 'a real world experience' and glad both of my kids are now out of the public school system.

I've learned that everything nowadays is online, from assignments to homework. Some teachers are starting to heavily depend on online. The thing is a lot of students don't learn effectively through a screen. Sure it's practical, but it's not effective. So to those teacher who depend on online for assignments and homework: What's the point of going to your class if everything is online anyways? From notes, to assignments, to homework? Might as well just do it at home. On a side note, I realized a lot of staff (not including teachers) really don't care about minorities. If you're not in the sports or cheerleading, you might as well not exist. Someone else mentioned fine arts not being looked at seriously and I wholeheartedly agree. It's really sad fine arts doesn't get the attention of the principal and his lackies as much as sports. If you're gonna have favouritism at least try to hide it. Shameful. However not all is bad. There are an arsenal of amazing teachers in each department and teacher who are truly passionate. You only gonna hope and pray you get them. These teachers earned the praise my daughter gave them (which says a lot).

It is absolutely an amazing school! Everyone treated equally, amazing course placement, never met a teacher who couldn't help a student learn there

As a student athlete (graduating class of 2014), my time at RRHS was enjoyable. The less interactions I had with the counselors and administration, the better. After four years of attendance, neither counselor nor the principal knew me by name- for instance my senior year Mr. Herring (the principal) asked me if it was my first year at River Ridge and where I moved from. Most teachers were excellent, a few left some to be desired. The coaches did everything they could for anyone regardless of who they were. Bullying was not tolerated and generally everyone felt accepted and free to be themselves without fear of being ostracized.
