2017-18 Student Author Introductions

This year, Ridgeview is pleased to welcome five new student authors to our student-run blog, Hoplite Insights. To learn more about these students, please read their introductions below.

Ethan, Class of 2019

My name is Ethan and I am in 11th grade. This year I am a member of Hoplite Helpers, Veritas, Science Bowl, StuCo, Student Ambassadors, and the Ridgeview blog of course. I enjoy activities like hiking, kayaking, swimming, and traveling.  Some of my more academic interests include science, math, and philosophy.  I hope to bring a unique set of qualities to the RCS blog, in that I value both science and philosophy, ways of thinking that have long been thought of as opposing one another.  While this is my first year as a blogger for Ridgeview, I hope to catch on quickly and post some interesting stuff for you. Let’s make it a great year!

Sarah, Class of 2019

I am Sarah, and I am a junior. I have attended Ridgeview Classical Schools since Kindergarten. I am an avid lover of theater, both watching and participating, and a lover of vocal music. I hope that my experiences in Ridgeview’s music and theater department will provide a unique perspective for the Student Blog.

My name is Alison, and I am a junior. I enjoy playing soccer as well as hiking and backpacking in the mountains. This year I hope to bring content to the blog that readers will find both interesting and enlightening.



Kelsey, Class of 2018

I am Kelsey, and I am a twelfth grader. I have been at Ridgeview since kindergarten and I am excited to share what Ridgeview is like.  My favorite subjects are physics and math. I love learning in general and experiencing new things. I like attending all of Ridgeview’s events, and I can’t wait to share the fun that I will experience this year.


Lucy, Class of 2018

My name is Lucy, and I am a twelfth grader. My interests include drawing, writing, reading, fashion, debating (okay, sometimes I just like to argue), people watching, Krav Maga, Quantum Physics, sleeping (an interest I believe I share with every Ridgeview student ever), languages, accents, cultures…can I just say almost everything? Through the blog, I hope to bring honest and thoughtful reflections on Life, the Universe, and Everything, and maybe a poem or two to provide relief from solid blocks of heavy, philosophical pondering.
