Elk Ridge Elementary is home to approximately 540 students in preschool through fifth grade. We have a wonderful staff that cares deeply for our students and their families. We work in collaborative teams to ensure rigorous learning and that our students are working towards mastery of skills in reading, writing, math and science. Our teachers meet weekly to plan together and analyze student work. We've also ensured time everyday where students receive additional time and support in reading in order to be successful. We also have a strong volunteer group of parents, grandparents, high school students and community members. Any day of the week you will see our volunteers reading with students, playing a workplace math activity, posting student work samples and much more.

We are thankful for our PTA and the involvement they have in creating many wonderful opportunities for our students. PTA has helped ensure that teachers have access to current technology, including document cameras and Smart Boards for classroom use. Out PTA also brings our families together with events such as Bingo Night, Game Nights and our annual Carnival.

Elk Ridge is a great place to work and learn!
