MEET OUR HEAD OF SCHOOL
It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to Ridgewood School, the light of learning! I am committed to ensuring that Ridgewood provides the highest quality instruction in a supportive learning environment.
“I have to say in all honesty that Ridgewood has given our children everything we wanted and more. It is a safe and loving environment that has helped our children blossom and develop beautifully. The teachers and staff of Ridgewood School have played a very important role in our children’s lives, and we truly appreciate all of them.”

Originally called ‘The Little School in the Woods,’ Ridgewood School has built a solid foundation for grades K-8 based on the philosophies of its founding fathers: the Bretney, Kelly, Martin, Miller and Wallace families.
