Open Quote Ridgeland High is known for its inclusive and welcoming community. Students can participate in first-class music programs; lots of AP courses and advanced courses are available; students have access to career training as well, if that is their interest. Our graduates attend schools ranging from Ivy League, to West Point, to our great state universities and local colleges. Approximately 94% of our graduates attend college upon graduation. As we say, "it's a great day to be a Titan." 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.
