Welcome to Ridgeview Elementary!
Ridgeview Elementary is a preschool thru 2nd grade learning community that serves approximately 600 students within Sparta Area Schools. Our mission is to provide high quality educational opportunities to ensure success for all. Our core principles include; cultivating a culture of respectful relationships, focus on effective instruction, utilize a data driven decision making model and expecting excellence in all we do. It is our desire that through our core principles we will accomplish our vision targets, which include; differentiating learning opportunities to meet individual needs in order to increase student achievement across all performance levels.
One of our greatest strengths at Ridgeview is the commitment to early literacy by providing a Balanced Literacy learning environment. The emphasis in our building is establishing a strong foundation in literacy and mathematical practices in conjunction with a love of learning within a safe, orderly, and caring environment. We are dedicated to serving our students and families as we provide a foundational learning experience.
Not only do our students receive the academic support they need; but also the skills necessary to be successful in all walks of life. All within our Ridgeview family model being safe, kind, responsible, and respectful. Positive behaviors are modeled and built through intentional teaching of expected behaviors. Our staff is committed to working through an active partnership with parents and the community to help the students achieve personal success.
My goal is that every family at Ridgeview Elementary experiences a caring and engaging environment where each feels welcome and encouraged to flourish. I look forward to the shared partnership and commitment to our Ridgeview community each day!
