Elk Ridge Elementary is home to over 580 students in kindergarten through fifth grade. We are also home to our district-wide elementary RISE program. This is a Special Education program focusing on meeting the unique needs of students with academic, social, behavioral, and independent living needs. We have an incredible staff that cares deeply for our students and their families. We work in collaborative teams to ensure that all students achieve at high levels, preparing them for success beyond high school. Our teams work to create a guaranteed and viable curriculum across grade levels, ensuring that every student gets what they need. 
We have strong partnerships with families and community organizations. We are grateful for our small-town community and the opportunities to come together and celebrate our students.
Thank you for being a part of our Elk Ridge community. It is truly something special!
