Extraordinary teacher, but an even better human being. He is incredibly knowledgeable of the subject matter and about a million other things going on the world. His class is a terrific mix between the math and science you've always wanted and the college advising you never knew you needed, especially coming out of South Dekalb. Single-handedly inspired me to pursue a career in education.

As a Senior in college, I can say that Mr. Ritenour is easily one of the Top 3 teachers that I have ever had. Mr. Rit made it a priority to ensure that students understood concepts rather than just memorization. I found his realistic attitude regarding college and the worlplace to be the most useful advice even as I approach college graduation. Although his exams were challenging, they encouraged us to think and were very doable given the instruction and level of preparedness.

Mr. Rit's Physics and AP Calculus classes are the reasons I majored in Math in college. His classes and teaching style gave me the best insight into what college is really like. He explained everything clearly, but still made us take responsibility for our own learning and grade. I still refer to my notes and use it for tutoring other students. Test/quizzes were fair, nothing was "dumbed down"

Mr. Ritenour is a great teacher that provides world class education in his Calculus and Physics classes. I am now a senior in Engineering and I feel that Mr. Ritenour over prepared me for both my Calculus and Calc-based Physics classes in college. There was never a time where I was confused in college. I even used my notes from high school to help me better understand the lessons. If you pay attention in class and study, you will excel. Hands down, Mr. Rittenour is the best.

Mr. Rit was very helpful as a professor and he was able to make a lot of students happy about physics and calculus. I came back to school and needed his help and he was more than willing to help me.
