Why Choose Ridge?

Why Choose Ridge?

Ridge Family Center for Learning is a school of choice in District 59.

The talented, dedicated staff at Ridge Family Center for Learning create an environment that supports the development of the whole child. Our school mission is “Growing Strong Minds, Strong Bodies, and Caring Hearts.”

We grow Strong Minds through inquiry and problem-based learning and the design of purposeful and effective curriculum and instruction. Within thinking classrooms our students are provided with opportunities to create, innovate, think critically and collaborate with one another on a daily basis. Coupled with the Common Core State Standards and District 59’s learning framework, the pathway for student success is clearly defined for our school community.

We grow Strong Bodies through daily physical activity, eating healthy snacks and foods from our school garden, family fitness nights, and much more.  Fuel Up to Play 60 has recognized us for our efforts in being active and adopting healthy lifestyle habits.

We grow Caring Hearts through our “Ridge Way-Being Safe, Respectful & Responsible.” School-wide our students participate in numerous civic projects through which they have made donations to local shelters, food pantries, animal shelters and more. Our students understand the importance of being good citizens and take great pride in their efforts. This year we are focusing on random acts of kindness and paying it forward.

We have excellent partnerships with our school families, our Family Teacher Organization (FTO), and our local community. We are very thankful for these partnerships, as the dedication and support given to Ridge Family Center for Learning are priceless.

For further information please contact the Ridge office at 847-593-4070.
