    I happen to know several people that attend this school and they have a great education. i attend a different school out of the area but still in tennessee and a person i know from up there has asked me to help them on math skills and i have not even learned how to do that yet. i believe that ripley has a fun learning experience in their school and they learn exceptionally well. The teachers there have great teaching methods from signs to songs. i believe this school is great.

    this school cares too much about the dress code. i mean seriously we are here to learn not for them to tell us how to dress. i mean come on when we get in college we arent gonna have a dress code. they are more worried about out dresscode than they are our grades!

    I graduated from Ripley in 2004 and it is not nearly as bad as people make it out to be. The community isn't great for sure but that's another story. I got a great education from Ripley and was more than prepared to excel in college especially in the areas of math english and science. I think most of the problems come from people being unable to discipline their own children. Its not the teachers' responsibility to rear your children its yours.

    I am not a parent but I did attend RHS. I think this school provided a positive learning environment for its students and the teachers are very concerned with the welfare of its students. Though this school does have its problems it's one of the best in the area. The school is in a safe secure area that will provide students with a great high school experience.
