Mission Statement:
The mission of Ridgefield High School is to enable all students to become self-directed and self-reflective learners. We engage all students in opportunities to improve their academic performance, develop their interpersonal skills, and achieve an understanding of their roles and responsibilities as citizens of our democratic society. We create a climate of trust, security, and pride to encourage a lifestyle that nourishes our minds, bodies, and spirits. To that end, Ridgefield High School collaborates with parents and the community to provide a variety of educational experiences which support academic, social, and civic growth in an environment which promotes a respect for diversity.
