Ridgecrest Intermediate School Reviews

By a Parent on

For our kids,  it's a very good school and good place to be.  There is a high percent of mixed race kids and asian kids which freaks out some families. Very competitive in academics and the pressure can get to some kids especially in 8th grade.   Lots of great opportunities outside of academics in school and on the Peninsula with sports,  theater,  dance, etc.  High school is competitive in all areas.  So if your kid is unhappy or minimally happy at Ridgecrest,  seriously consider private school.  The only 2 knocks are student/teacher ratio (good if your child is self-motivated and stays ahead of the curve) and the facilities (safe, not swanky but glad $$$ go to classroom instruction).  Realisticly and considering the economy,  the 2 knocks-against are fleas on an elephants back.

Very little individuality here. . My family thinks it is such a mad house that they are considering sending me to another school.  
to me it is almost like a city school. You here of break- ins, internet teasing, and students vandalizing bathrooms. Only thing i find comforting is that its in RPV. {No insult intended to students}
