Ridgefield High School’s Fall Fair was bustling with middle school and high school students on Wednesday. With approximately 50 representatives on hand from a variety of universities, community colleges, technical schools, apprenticeships, military, employment and community service options, students were able to choose from a multitude of post-secondary opportunities to explore all in one place.
"We are fortunate to have wonderful support from our administration so we can incorporate the event into our school day,” said Amy McKenna, High School & Beyond Coordinator at Ridgefield High School. “Since it is part of our day, all students cycle through the fair and are able to connect with as many programs as time will allow. We even bus our eighth grade students up for the event!”
According to McKenna, Ridgefield High School students benefit from the Fall Fair because it encourages them to reflect upon and update their High School & Beyond Plan each year.
