Our Mission

The mission of Union Ridge School is to foster excellence in the academic, physical, and social-emotional development of every child. 

We seek to provide an orderly, trusting, and nurturing environment that works in full partnership with our families and community so that all children become responsible and productive citizens. 

All aspects of the school’s organization, curricular, and co-curricular activities are designed to accommodate individual learning styles so that all may experience success.

We Believe

  • All students can learn and become productive members of society;
  • Quality education for all students results from open communication and trust;
  • Mutual respect and trust are essential for building productive human relationships;
  • It is important to instill in students a sense of responsibility and respect for themselves, their school, and their community.

Our school is truly a community where people offer strength and support to each other.  Union Ridge is a good place to learn, to work, to be.
