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 schools, anything lower than a 1300 on the SATs is considered terrible, and many state championships are won, especially in Soccer, Hockey, Lacrosse, Cross-country and skiing. But this is obviously because the parents can afford expensive private tutors for both academics and athletics. Oh and every next person drives a Jeep, it's a fact of life!

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 doesn't? There are also the sexually active kids, but not everyone loses their virginity at 14 or 15, like many people claim. And there are many people who make large salaries, but not everyone drives around in $70,000 cars and live in $4 million houses.

Ridgefield is just like any other wealthy suburban town. The people who have added other definitions of Ridgefield describing how terrible this town is obviously are just disgruntled and have had bad personal experiences here. That doesn't mean that the town itself is a bad place, it just means that they have gotten involved with people who have made negative influences in their lives. Ridgefield may be boring, but it's not the suckish hellhole that people have made it out to be.

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.

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.
Kid #1: Whats good in the Ridge tonight, gangsta?
Kid #2: You're not black, dude.
Kid #1: Ok. But seriously whats happening.
Kid #2: Nothing. It's Ridgefield. Wanna go to genoa?

A relatively small town in NJ. 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.

Oh, please...
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.

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, too!

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.

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).
