I had Mr. Ripatrazone when I was a high school senior at BRHS in 2005-2006. He was a great teacher. Never gave a lot of homework, and let you work as much as you wanted in class. I started writing a short story for his class. He was so proud of it he wanted to get it published when I was done. He worked with me on this project every step of the way. Unfortunately, I never finished the book before the school year was over. But I never forgot how inspired he made me feel to continue writing.

Ripat is one of those teachers you just feel comfortable being around. The way he acts in AP Lit vs Creative Writing is different, but in both he's funny and really helpful. He really knows his stuff. He's very encouraging about writing and helped me get my first story published

Great teacher. Really helped me improve my writing skills and was funny to listen to. Everything he teaches he puts on worksheets so it's hard to forget anything. Very random with his humor but I heard he's different with every class. A quote- "It's Friday and there are figs being consumed in Bulgaria so let's write some poems."

I had Mr. Ripatrazone back in 2005-2006 as a Senior in AP Lit/Comp. He was still new, and still getting his teaching methods together. Yet, he was a fair, thoughtful, and challenging teacher. However, his method of allowing long, protracted silences while waiting for student responses did get old

He seems like a very nice person but is pretty mysterious. his grading is hard but fair. i don't like that he teaches to the AP test but that's just me
