We expect our students to learn to balance their freedom to explore with their responsibility to learn.
We ask the same of our families: we ask that you balance your freedom to choose a Montessori education for your child with your responsibility to support your child and the school with your time, talents and resources.
1. Support your student's education: Each Ridgeline family is expected to ensure that their student attends school daily and arrives on time, read and understand the material that comes home from school, learn about Montessori education, respond promptly to school requests, communicate clearly and respectfully with other community members and model the values that we work to instill in our students.
2. Support the school with your time and talents: Each Ridgeline family is expected to volunteer 40 hours every year and record those hours for school records.
3. Support the school financially: Each Ridgeline family is expected to contribute to the school’s fundraising efforts. Fundraising keeps our classrooms fully staffed and allows us to care for our school building while also providing additional, essential opportunities such as PE, arts and counseling.
