Principal's Message

Welcome to Pine Ridge School! We are committed to providing a positive and challenging environment, with 21st Century learning taking place at all grade-levels from Pre-School to 8th Grade. Our goal is to provide learning activities which require high levels of critical thinking and reasoning, accompanied by application of learning to real-world situations. 

Our 6th, 7th and 8th grade students have access to online learning, either part-time (blended) or full-time. We are constantly striving to increase our use of technology to prepare all of our students for their academic future. All of our teachers are experienced and dedicated to helping each and every student reach their full potential. We are all here to help make your student’s academic journey successful! 

We're looking forward to 2017-2018!
