Located beside the grassy hills of Ridgedale park, Ridgedale alternative school provides students in our area the opportunity to acquire a first class education in a structured, wholesome environment. Every year, many of the finest educators in East Tennessee choose Ridgedale as their destination school.
When helping students with special needs, our mission is to foster supportive relationships in a safe, caring, and academically appropriate environment. We believe that this will motivate students to problem solve and make positive choices. This mission has lead us to many insights into our understanding of what we want to be. Ultimately, our vision is to be a comprehensive multi-disciplinary school, working to meet the academic, social, and emotional needs of individual students. Our programs seek to advance student academics and success in school through effective use of research based strategies, technology, and access to the general education curriculum. We encourage achievement so students may be educated in their least restrictive environment with the strategies we develop.
