A Message from the Head of Academics
Something special is happening at Sage Ridge School. Students obtain content knowledge in the liberal arts disciplines while at the same time they acquire invaluable problem solving and critical thinking skills that are vital to success in the 21st century. Our academic philosophy is rooted in the belief that today's students need a broad education that includes studies in a variety of disciplines from the arts to the sciences. While we value content knowledge, we also value students' social emotional development and the development of their 'soft skills.' Amazingly, our teachers are able to create supportive and nurturing classroom environments where there are high expectations for student success and engagement. As I circulate around the School and visit classrooms, I observe learning environments where students and teachers respect each other and value learning. Students are taking intellectual risks, are learning about how to succeed well and falter gracefully, and are growing and learning every day.
