Open Quote Terrible school experience 2017/2018. Seemed like an outdated backwards school environment. Small town gossipy feel to this school. Like Mayberry gone very wrong. Seemed like outdated traditional education, policies, and unconventional teaching methods. It felt like they were trying to catch up to the rest of the academic world by piling on homework and classwork and offering quantity education instead of quality.I recommend avoiding this school and looking for a more progressive updated school with higher test scores, better eighth grade math teachers and better administrative leadership.

Open Quote My daughter attended Ripon Elementary in her 8th grade year. She transferred from Park View with As and Bs. She was at least a 3.0 student. She was an energetic outgoing athlete who played on the schools soccer team as well as softball through the city. I transferred her out of Parkview because she was severely injured too many times. In her first year at Ripon Elementary, her grades dropped dramatically to all Fs. She suffered from harassment and bullying and although she spent her entire elementary years striving for academic success at Parkview she ended her year at Ripon Elementary mentally scarred, an F student, and not being able to attend her 8th grade graduation. I believe her Fs were due to poor teaching skills and continuing harassment. Her grades went back up at Ripon High and I transferred her to Gregori where her GPA ranges from a 3.0 to a 3.5. When a school proclaims to be a close family I do not consider that a good thing. In my experience that is a bad thing. Since then certain staff have been replaced. Hopefully things have improved.

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
