“Ridgefield offers so many facets of people, and support at every corner of our community.”
I was privileged to witness firsthand how helpful and generous my fellow Ridgefielders were during the pandemic. My husband and I are both medical doctors and during the pandemic he worked at Danbury Hospital, and I volunteered at RVNA vaccination clinics. We so appreciated the numerous neighbors reaching out offering help or showing gratitude. It takes a village as it is said, and I always add that Ridgefield is “the perfect one.”
How long has your family been a part of the Ridgefield Academy community?
We started our RA journey five years ago when our son Mateo was in 4th grade, and he is graduating this year. Since day one, every single person at RA made us really feel at home. We are really blessed to be part of this big family.
What stood out to you when choosing RA as the school for your son?
The academics with inquiry-based learning, the beautiful campus with the most incredible Ridgefield views from the amazing athletic fields, the diversity, the supportive faculty, and the learning environment.
What has your experience been with RA through the years?
RA has a remarkable way of integrating children and easing transition. Transitions are tough for most children, and if the transition feels good, the experience can start on a positive note. It really felt like home from day one. The countless opportunities that RA offered and continues to offer Mateo are priceless.
“The faculty, and every staff member at RA, are so enthusiastic and create a very positive, nurturing environment.”
Mateo keeps getting challenged every day without even realizing. He is happy, loves his school, friends, teachers, and he is eager to learn. In my opinion, that can only be achieved if the student is in a safe and supportive school, where everyone goes above and beyond to help them blossom.
