Ridgewood Public Schools seemed to have prepared him very well for a rigorous university curriculum

I was not a lover of Ridgewood Public Schools until my son (who was just about the 50 percentile at RHS Class of ’12) took the SATs and ACTs and scored extremely well; well enough to get him into some of very competitive engineering schools and liberal arts colleges. Ridgewood is still looked upon very favorably by most universities. His 3.6 RHS GPA went alot further than I thought it would have. Some might say that Ridgewood is relying on its’ old reputation but I do not. I am happy to say that he excelling at his freshman courses (calc 2, physics, writing, etc) at a very good engineering college. Ridgewood Public Schools seemed to have prepared him very well for a rigorous university curriculum.

Just my two cents worth.

  1. I am the original poster of this in an earlier thread. To keep it in context, here’s what I was respondiing to. . . . .

    “Keep telling yourselves how special your average town is, with its average schools and restaurants, below average bars, park space, and outdoor activity options, and terrible location. Pay your taxes to support the palace in the lake.”
