Ridge View High School is a school wide Arts Innovation for Medical Sciences (AiMS) magnet. In addition to the school-wide magnet which benefits every student, there is a Health Science Magnet and a Scholars Academy for Business and Law Magnet. Within the school, there are four smaller learning communities; AVID, Blazer Academy, Carolina Alliance for Technology, and the School for the Arts. All students benefit from the offerings of the school-wide magnet program and can tailor their high school experience by being a part of a district level magnet program or a smaller learning community. The overarching theme of Ridge View is the four A’s: Academics, Activities, Arts, and Athletics. The four A’s are equal branches of what it means to have a full and well-rounded high school experience.
