Academic Success/Programs

The entire staff at Ridgewood Elementary is striving for academic success. The Federal and State Governments have made it very clear that schools will be accountable at all levels. Testing is the fundamental part of assessing how well children are learning and how effective the schools are preparing students. Our goal is to continue to show academic growth and achievement in all of our students and meet the requirements set by the Federal and State Governments.
