Welcome to the Ridgemount School website. Ridgemount School is a growing school with Junior Kindergarten to Grade 5. Through the ARC process of 2012 – 2013 it was determined that the school would become a Junior Kindergarten to Grade 8 school effective September 2015.
We are located directly beside Mountain Arena on Hester Street just off of Upper James. Our School has a beautiful large playground that students enjoy on their nutrition breaks.
Ridgemount has a wonderful staff and a very supportive School Council. Parent volunteers run weekly pizza days. The school offers daily milk sales and has a daily nutritious snack program.
As a school we have high expectations for our students. Older students are given ample opportunities for being student leaders. We also focus on monthly character traits and celebrate our students during monthly assemblies.
Our annual chocolate sale was an overwhelming success. We would like to thank everyone who supported our chocolate sale. All money raised will be used to purchase more technology for the classrooms.
