Welcome to Sycamore Ridge School! Our website is one of the communication vehicles we use for school news and information. Please take a moment to navigate our website and please don’t hesitate to contact us if we can be of help or assistance.
Sycamore Ridge, which opened in 2005, is a school where children and adults teach and learn with gusto and a generosity of spirit. Our classrooms and campus are filled with the exhilaration that comes with focused, high quality teaching and learning. Our steadfast attention to effective instructional practices in teaching writing and the wise integration of technology has led to extraordinary student writing. To watch our students use research and technology to sort through vast amounts of information and communicate their viewpoints through their high-quality written work is profound. Our commitment to supporting students in developing a deep and connected understanding of mathematics has resulted in fearless student mathematicians! Our students reason, generalize, and challenge the mathematical thinking of themselves and others while using their high-level mathematical abilities to solve real-world problems.
We want each child to develop the skills they will need to be successful in the 21st century –effective communication, collaboration, critical thinking, creativity, and character. Our STEAM+ approach supports robust and engaging opportunities for students to experience an interdisciplinary approach to learning supported by specialized instruction from credentialed specialists in science, technology, art, music and physical education. Science and engineering concepts fuse together with technology and art while physical education and music collide in ways never before imagined.
Our students social and emotional development is supported by a calm and safe school environment that helps children develop self-discipline, strong character, and a sense of responsibility. All students participate in our PeaceBuilders character education program. Daily classroom and playground interactions as well as our multi-age Village family structure provide opportunities for students to use the socially responsible principles of the PeaceBuilders Program on a daily basis.
Thank you for visiting our website and we look forward to your involvement in our mission to provide a nurturing, inspiring, and rigorous educational program for each of our students.
