The campus was designed to support the future of education by creating areas for student collaboration and engaging seminar spaces.
The school has a variety of amenities including a theater, two gyms, a weight room, a wrestling room, a dance studio, and a 4,000+ stadium for track/field, football, and soccer.  The campus also includes three fields for softball and baseball as well as six competition tennis courts.
Staffed with caring adults who set and model high expectations for life-long learning, RRHS provides a safe, engaging, and productive learning environment for all of our young scholars to thrive!”
Why was the signage requested?  
“We had two main objectives for our signage: 1) provide clear direction to visitors, students, and community members visiting our site; and 2) begin to establish an identity for our students as “Riverdale Ridge Ravens.”
Who are you trying to target with your new signage?
“We are looking to create identity with our students, staff, and new community members.”
Did the signs meet your purpose?
“The signs have truly met the desired outcomes.  Our school crest and raven mascot are prominently located throughout the building and our way-finding signage is easy to locate, provides clear direction, and leverages school colors to reinforce our identity for the young scholars we are serving. We expect to add more signage in the years ahead and will certainly return to Signarama for their expertise, quality designs and service”
What kind of feedback have you received from your clientele regarding the sign?
“The wayfinding signs have been commented on as being very effectively placed and easy to see from a distance. The logos in the school as well as the entryway crest capture eyes and help a “new school” feel rich in tradition already!”
