In 2012, the Cedar Ridge Elementary staff and administration decided to change the learning environment by incorporating grade levels together in a multi-age classroom system. Instead of traditional K-5 classrooms, the building was divided into three teams: the Kangaroo Team, the Bee Team and the Scholar Team. These teams allow for a multi-age environment that meets the needs of individual students.
In 2017, the staff and administration returned to the traditional self-contained classroom for K-3, while 4th and 5th grade are departmentalized between ELA and Social Studies, Math, and Science. We have also implemented a 1st-5th grade reading intervention time called Cardinal Class.
2018 brings in a brand new school building and welcome students from Shepard and New Haven Elementary schools. We are growing to have three sections of each grade level and full time specialists. Please come by and visit!
