In my opinion some of the teachers are very very rude . My bestfriend was having a mental breakdown in the hallway and a teacher came through and yelled at us both to get to class whist he was sobbing into his knees . Luckily I got him help , but she insisted on us leaving the hallway and going to class instead of getting him help.
I highly recommend Ripley Middle School. The administrators are so willing to work with students and parents alike. The teaching staff is one of the best in the state of WV. They are kind and caring and show a genuine interest in all students achieving and becoming productive citizens.
