Welcome to Ridgewood High School! The mission of our school focuses on student learning:
Students will become adaptable life-long learners and responsible, ethical citizens, with the ability to make informed decisions in a changing global society.
Students will demonstrate learning in multiple settings and in multiple ways.
Members of the Ridgewood High School community will collaborate to ensure that every student learns.
To support our mission we continually examine our current curriculum and instructional practices to ensure a rigorous and challenging academic environment that will offer our students multiple opportunities upon graduation, with college readiness being our top priority. This is done through the use of alignment to the Common Core Standards, which have replaced the Illinois Learning Standards. Additionally, a variety of assessments are used to demonstrate student understanding of course topics.
It is an honor and privilege to serve the students, parents, and staff members of the Ridgewood High School community.
