Ridgewood is well known for the exceptional strength of its public school system. Consisting of six elementary schools, two middle schools, and one high school, this school district offers its students the best in education, recreation, and extra-curricular activities. One of the key core values of educators in this school district is rigor. In the video below, one of the teachers interviewed outlines how rigor doesn't necessarily mean more time spent working on homework, it means a higher level of engagement. In order to capture the full attention of the students who attend this school, Ridgewood staff has incorporated new technologies into the classroom. These range from chromebooks, to iPads, to smart boards, and more. These devices are ones that many students encounter at home during their recreation time.
There's no denying that the tech sector is rapidly growing and more and more jobs require employees to be adept with computers. It makes sense that education should shift to meet a changing workforce. There's also the perk of being eco-friendly. More digital assignments, mean an increasingly paperless footprint for this school district.
Take a tour of Ridgewood's tech-savvy education below in a video crafted by Ridgewood students: Michael Hayes Walsh, Spencer Muhlstock, Aidan Gibney, and Thomas Carmona.
