  • Remember is School Closed due to the Solar Eclipse Monday, August 21.


    Knox County Schools is providing special eclipse glasses for every student. We will be sending the glasses home with students on Friday. Please look for them when your child gets off the bus on Friday.

    It is very important that anyone looking at the eclipse wear these glasses. Please do not allow your child to look at the sun during the eclipse without these glasses. The glasses may not be the right size for your child, and you should check for correct fit. Alternatively, you can get information about making a pinhole viewer at https://www.timeanddate.com/eclipse/make-pinhole-projector.html 


    Please feel free to contact your child's teacher or Principal Diana Gossett should you have any questions.

    Are you reading your child's home note?? Your child will be bringing a note home to you every day. This note will include activities, behavior, and other important information. It's a great way to track the wonderful performance of your star student!

  • Ridgedale

    Located beside the grassy hills of Ridgedale park, Ridgedale School provides students in our area the opportunity to acquire a first class education in a structured, wholesome environment. Every year, educators looking for a great challenge choose Ridgedale as their destination school.

    Our philosophy

    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.
    Your present circumstances don't determine where you can go; they merely determine where you start. --Nido Qubein
