About Pine Ridge

Pine Ridge opened its doors for the first time in September 1992. We are located a natural setting, surrounded by a conservation area and a retreat. Staff and students enjoy all the benefits of a modern, technologically advanced facility. We are considered to be a large school and expanded our size by adding twenty classrooms in 2001.

At Pine Ridge, we are proud of our rich diversity. We also have an incredibly vibrant extracurricular program. Our focus is on the success of all students. Our staff members are committed to offering our students the highest quality educational opportunities and are accountable for their learning. We are supported by a school community that values involvement in the success of their children. Character education is an important focus of our curriculum.
