Grand Ridge Elementary School opened in September 2006 and works within these Guiding Principles:
Grand Ridge embraces the philosophy that all students can and will learn. There is a consistent focus on learning so that all students are successful. Knowledge, skills, and research are used to continually improve teaching. High expectations and clear standards are understood by students and families.
Grand Ridge is a safe haven for student's hearts and minds. Flexibility and compassion for others are a part of daily interactions. Honor and respect for diversity is seen within and outside the school. Parent, business, and community partnerships are cultivated to support student learning.
Grand Ridge dismisses classes early every Wednesday for two hours of staff collaboration.
