Ridgefield School District

The Ridgefield Public Schools are grounded in the belief that education is a lifelong journey that begins with meaningful experiences that instill a love of learning and support hopes and dreams. We pride ourselves on a strong tradition of honoring student individuality with intellectual experiences that are commensurate with their social, emotional, and cognitive abilities. We are equally proud of our commitment to enriching the student experience through co-curricular and extra-curricular activities. We strongly encourage all students to participate in our outstanding art, music, athletic, and enrichment programs. The Ridgefield School District recognizes the academic challenges facing us as the implementation of Common Core State Standards and Core Curriculum Content Standards and the newly released New Jersey Student Learning Standards (NJSLS) in 21st Century Life and Careers, Comprehensive Health and Physical Education, Language Arts Literacy, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Technology, Visual and Performing Arts, and World Languages place higher demands on faculty, staff, parents, and students to demonstrate competency with these rigorous expectations. In response to these challenges, we develop comprehensive plans that capitalize on data driven curriculum revision, aggressive technology integration, strong instructional practices, and the ongoing staff development to support our top initiatives. We tailor our approach through differentiated instruction, and, as a result, our students perform well. We stand committed to the ideal that we can and will continue to do better.
