"No other organization at Ridgewood High School has the cohesiveness and sense of community like the Band. These students are not only excellent performers, but they also display character, self-discipline, and school spirit. These kids are superb students and represent our high school in a positive way."
- John A. Lorenz Ridgewood High School Principal
