Ridgefield High School Principal Dr. Jacob Greenwood announced today that Ryan Williams is the Ridgefield High School (RHS) Class of 2023 Valedictorian.
Ryan has attended RPS since second grade—Ridgebury Elementary and then Scotts Ridge Middle School. A passionate science student, Ryan plans to study computer science and possibly physics in college. His current favorite class at RHS is BC Calculus with Mr. Finlayson. Ryan received a perfect score on the AP Computer Science exam and loved the class with Dr. Anton.
His advice to underclassmen is to not throw away your freshman and sophomore years. "Put effort in because they matter," he recommends. The hardest class at RHS for Ryan might have been AP Physics 1. "The thinking and math is a lot different, and you feel like you're jumping off into the deep end in the beginning," Ryan explains.
