Welcome To Paris Ridge Elementary

On behalf of the staff at Paris Ridge Elementary, I would like to welcome you to our website which has been designed to help current and prospective families become familiar with our school, our staff, and the educational opportunities available to students and their families. On the site, you will find information about upcoming events, a directory of school staff, links to our school newsletter, and other pertinent information.

Our School

Paris Ridge opened its doors in 2009 and offers Kindergarten through 5th-grade classes for around 420 students. The Paris Ridge staff consists of highly qualified educators (as mandated under federal legislation) and support staff who are passionate about their work. Our staff believes that their role is to facilitate student learning and to assist students in reaching their highest potential as independent, innovative, and inspired learners.

Educational Opportunities

Students at Paris Ridge have access to 1:1 technology in grades 1-5 and 3:1 in Kindergarten. In addition, students attend art, music, Spanish and physical education classes as part of their weekly schedule. In the classroom, teachers utilize a variety of instructional techniques to differentiate and facilitate student learning.

School Environment

Paris Ridge is a PBIS (Positive Behavior Intervention Supports) school. Our philosophy is to use positive behavioral reinforcement to shape student behavior around three central topics: being safe, respectful and responsible. Student expectations are clearly articulated for all areas of our building and students are recognized when they contribute positively. The PBIS system of support fosters student independence and places an emphasis on the importance of self-monitoring.

Our Philosophy

As a staff, we believe our job is to teach students to…….

● Be lifelong learners
● Be successful community members
● Be problem solvers
● Be independent
● Be respectful toward others

Community Volunteers

Our Paris Ridge community is critical to our success and we encourage parents and community members to become involved through volunteering and in participating in school-wide events. We have an active PTO who develop and implement a number of events throughout the year. For more information about these events, please see the PTO page.

Our website has been designed to help you become familiar with Paris Ridge Elementary and we hope that it is informative and answers most questions you might have. However, if you have additional questions that cannot be answered here, please do not hesitate to call or stop by our office. Welcome to Paris Ridge!
