Our School

We are strong and proud here at Ridgefield High School, serving students with nationally-ranking academics since 1971. Our exceptional students work hard and it shows, with test scores regularly falling among the top in our state and across the country. In fact, our school ranked in the top 10 percent of Newsweek’s 2015 list of the top high schools in America.

We serve nearly 1,800 students on our campus, proudly guiding students on their journey to adulthood. We offer a number of extra-curricular activities to give students the well-rounded education that colleges look for in applicants. Our rigorous curriculum ensures that graduates are well-prepared for life beyond high school, no matter what path they choose.

Our Mission

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.
