Community: Ridgeland High School opened in August 2002 in the Madison County School District, one of the fastest growing and top-rated school districts in the state of Mississippi. The school is located and serves students with the city limits of Ridgeland and portions of Madison County, a suburban area north of metropolitan Jackson. The area's convenient location, a strong public school system, and easy access to Jackson have made Ridgeland one of the more rapidly developing areas within the metro area.
