My daughter enrolled at Ripon Elementary with a close to a 3.0 GPA or above. She played soccer at Parkview and Softball through the city. I transferred her from Parkview Elementary to Ripon Elementary due to severe injuries and aggressive students. She suffered from chronic symptoms due to two concussions at Parkview. After attending Ripon Elementary her grades dropped to all Fs. I found many of Ripon Elementary's policies to be outdated, counter productive, and a little early 1900s. Some of these policies have been updated since then. Assigned seating in the cafeteria was one example. I found that staff seemed gossipy about students. It seemed that favoritism was common and retaliation from my complaints was endless throughout the year. I spent a year trying to protect my daughter from staff at this school. She couldn't attend dances, and she couldn't attend her eighth grade graduation. Endless accusations and what seemed to be witch hunts become the norm for us. In my experience I caught a teacher in two lies in writing. My daughter left this school severely traumatized, an F student and with a triggered rare illness Von Willbrand disorder. She will have to take medication for the rest of her life. I transferred her out of this district. Her GPA now ranges between 3.6 and 3.8. She is still recovering from her nightmare at this school. Since then a few staff have been replaced.
