Open Quote The administrative staff is very supportive. The teaching staff are very focused on seeing student growth in all areas. Many staff members go above and beyond by leading after school activities that our students can participate in. Close Quote

Open Quote I have worked at RVES for the past 4 years. I love the school and will absolutely be sending my students to Ridgeview when they are school-aged. The administration changed two years ago and the school has grown for the good! The teachers and support staff strive to help all students excel! Close Quote

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.
