    Ridge View is a fantastic school. The staff is so friendly and caring. It's a family environment there. Everyone knows everyone else since the school is small and I like it that way. Your child isn't just a face in a crowd here they are a person they have a name.

    My daughter has attended Ridgeview for the past 4 years. I am very happy at the school and so is she. The dedication of the teachers and all other staff is greatly appreciated.The PTO does a great job. My hope for the next year it that Ridgeview gets the recognition it deserves. Ridgeview is a small school.And that is one of the things that I liked about Ridgeview. We have a smaller classroom ratio then same other schools that is also a great plus for us. Ridgeview does have a high poverty level. I believe it is the highest in Hobart. We should also be able to rise above that.I know everyone is busy with stuff to do at home - kids -work ect . It is the little things that can make a difference. Find out what you or your children can do to make a difference.
