A poorly defined town in Connecticut. Yes, it is generaly rich, and most houses are either ancient colonials or new McMansions. There are a decent amount of normal sized/aged houses, but not many are located in any area they would be seen. The town does have a terrible selection of shops, most being over-priced clothing stores, 'antique' stores, jewlery stores and that one lingerie shop. The only places that stay open after 7 are Deborah Ann's, CVS, Planet Pizza, Starbucks and the Subway that was forced to move to a side street rather than actual main street. There is the park, which has a tree, gazebo, stage and is CVS ajacent. The cops do have not a thing to do, so they spend all thier time busting teenagers for drinking and smoking. They do this alot, since alcohol and cigarrets can be bought by the on homeless man in town for a low, low price. The school is well know for having good SAT scores and GPAs, but that doesn't make it a good school. The building is poorly designed and overly-crowded, the classes spend only about half the actual class time doing work, and many teachers enjoy talking about thier personal lives with the students. Most seniors drive, and the majority of the current sophmores are complete bastards/bitches. The girls are not AS slutty as everyone says, but there are plenty of sluts around. The jocks are well know due to the fact that the only thing ever talked about on morning announcments is sports (mostly football). Our mascot is the tiger, which there is a bronze statue of outside the main office. It is male. Very, very male. The kids are not as spoiled as everyone thinks, but money is not an issue for virtually anyone in school. Sex happens, but sex happens everywhere. Sometimes on the stage in the auditorium. Some kids do do drugs, almost always pot, but not everyone is a junkie. Underclassmen do fight more than past years, but it's mostly amongst themselves. Cars... are fairly normal, but there are too many humemrs and jeeps for a suburban town like Ridgefield.
Student 1: WTF. Ridgefield isn't as f'ed up urban dictionary says.
Student 2: Pretty close though.
Student 1: Yeah...
A beautiful town, probably the MOST beautiful town in all of the luxurious Fairfield County
. Its charming Main Street is lined with a plethora of clothing boutiques, restaurants of fine dining, pricey jewelry stores, glamorous flower shops, expensive hair salons, expensive toy stores, and fine wine shops. If you cannot already tell, this town and ALL of it's people (even the Ridgefield "poor") are extremely wealthy in comparison with the rest of the country as well as CT’s seven other counties. This wealth is evident everywhere you look. It is especially evident in the houses as well as in the people. Many of the houses are old colonial homes or either newly built custom-designed multi-million dollar mansions. The people also carry around an air of pretension, though a majority of Ridgefield’s residents are welcoming. Since the children have a lot of money (both from their parents and jobs they are forced to get to learn responsibility) they are able to afford pricey drugs such as heroin and cocaine, as well as a wide assortment of alcoholic beverages. Though this is a problem, as Fairfield County
is the nation’s county with the highest drug and alcohol consumption, it can be overlooked by the great achievements made by the town’s students. Some achievements are that a good percentage of the high school seniors each year are accepted and sent off to Ivy League ...
All the kids have tried pot
once, cause its easier to get than alcohol. Everyone gets a 4.0 or your considered an idiot. Everyone hates eachother, talks behind everyone elses back, and everyone has money. If your considered poor
in this town, its cause your only a millionare
and not a multimillionare
The highschool here is terrible and overrated even though its one of the top in the country. All the girls where mini skirts, have sex at 14, and all go to colleges like boston college
and um boston college
. Sometimes boston university
You either hang out behind geneoa, starbucks, dunkin donuts, or yanity. The police here are bored since theres no crime so if your carrying a small amount of alcohol you will be jailed for life.
Basically this town is terrible, its filled with white people, and maybe you'll find two or three asian kids around if you look hard. Everyone is an overachiever, and you either go to yale or OD on cocaine or heroine because your family hates you because you didnt get into yale.
So go raise your kids somewhere else.
Where do you live?
On the border of newyork
Regardless of the other definitions of the town of Ridgefield in Connecticut, it really isn't much different or worse than any other suburban town in the United States. Sure, we are probably wealthier than many other towns, but behavior and people wise, we're nothing out of the ordinary.
Ridgefield is a town in Connecticut's Fairfield County. There are six elementary schools, two middle schools, one high school, and two private schools. Ridgefield has some of the best public schools in the country. The main street has many small (and extremely pricey) boutiques. There is also a candy shop and a pizza shop, where most of the kids in the middle schools and high school hang out after school on Fridays because there isn't a whole lot to do here. There is also a park in town, which is a popular teen hang-out spot as well.
Sports play a big role in Ridgefield. The students do have a lot of school spirit, but what's wrong with that? Ridgefield High School has relatively high scores on standardized test as well. Yes, and there are also the kids who drink and smoke, but honestly, what town doesn't have kids like that? Wherever you go, teens will always be experimenting with drugs and alcohol. The cops, however, don't really have much to do, so they will punish you severely for relatively minor infractions of the law. And contrary to popular beliefs, the schools in Ridgefield aren't populated with only jocks and sluts. Sure, we have our fair share, but what school do...
The original model for what would later become the Homestead and Grid City Acts. A scenic, dyspeptic Connecticut town engineered on the elliptic principle that the distance from any given house A to any store open after 9 B summed with the distance from A to something to do C will always equal D, where D is the distance to New York (of some mathematic curiousity, this will also always be the distance to Wiggles
Ridgefield has the linear eccentricity of a limp dick!
Most Ridgefielders are white and wealthy; however, there are families (like mine) who drive a normal car, make less than six figures, both parents work, kid works, have values, try to understand the world. The high school is competitive, but high schools have forever been populated by popular jocks, drinkers/druggies, and everyone else who feels left out. Ridgefield is like many other burbs; just more so.
Ridgefield, high school, wealthy, suburb, connecticut
A southwestern Connecticut town of about 25,000, known to kids who live there as "the Ridge". Not as preppy as Greenwich, not as wealthy as Darien. There is no crime, so the cops just dick around all day and bust house parties at night. You either hang out at Genoa (italian restaurant), or if you like cutting yourself you hang out by Dunkin. Then you drive around for two hours and end up at someones house right before it gets busted. But if you think there's nothing going on in Ridgefield, just check out any of the nearby towns - Redding, Wilton, Weston, Bethel - theres even less happening. It's Connecticut, dude.more...
The kids aren't any different from your average connecticut kids, except maybe a little richer. So yes they're preppy, mostly white and probably dont know what hit them the first time they leave their bubble, but theyre not all assholes. Weed is easy to get, alcohol isn't as easy but thats fine cause they steal it from their parents' liquor cabinets anyway.
Ridgefield High School is legit and is consistently ranked in the top 15 high schools in CT. Anyone who has said otherwise, look it up retard. A decent percentage of kids make it to the Ivy league every year. A lot more go to UConn or WestConn.
Otherwise, nothing really special about this town. The people who diss it are probably from Wilton or just have a stick up their ass. I could write about the Battle of Ridgefield or some historical shit, but thats kinda gay.
. The majority of the town has a lot of $ unless they live in the garden apartments
. Every other house is a Korean
family, and the public
schools are only known for their outstanding music
program. Everyone knows each other, and people talk
behind everyone's backs. The only decent
places to hang out
is the park
and the pool
My rich girlfriend is on the Ridgefield chorus, band, bel canto, and choir!
