It's hard to compare apples and oranges.

Our average AP pass rate is 88%, but we don't run the same AP program as everyone else. 

You may hear other high school students say they are taking 5-7 AP classes a year. But are they really taking a college level class? Our AP classes result in students who can pass their AP exams, thus validating our curriculum as equivalent to a real college course. In addition, all our students who receive AP credit on their transcripts are required to sit for the exam. This means that our pass rates are the highest in the region even with all our AP students taking the exams! 

I took a biology class at UNR over the summer and the professor originally didn’t want to let me join because I hadn’t taken college chemistry yet. From her experience, high school biology classes usually don't prep kids enough for her class. Once I was in the class, I didn’t have any issues with the chemistry sections. The professor mentioned that she was impressed, specifically mentioning that my chemistry background (from SRS) was extremely strong, especially considering that it was only a high school class. This proves how college preparatory it was.

Lower School - Grade 3-5

Flexible, personalized engagement is the priority of our self-contained, lower school classrooms.

Our youngest scholars are always active. They are hungry for knowledge and our teachers keep pace with their eagerness through a myriad of techniques that encourage hands-on engagement and critical thinking. 

Our Lower School teachers meaningfully challenge students, while supporting the individual needs of each child and communicating directly with parents. Students start on the path towards independence in an environment emphasizing organization and self-reflection. Computer fluency, writing skills, and public speaking are seamlessly integrated across the curriculum. Engaging classroom activities make learning both innovative and fun. 

  • Classrooms are equipped with computers for every student for Grades 3-5.
  • Students take physical education every day and have a daily rotation of arts (music, theatre, or visual art) and coding classes.
  • Laboratory science classes are part of our core curriculum.
  • Students acquire study and organizational skills and engage in collaborative learning.
  • Advanced math is available for accelerated learners.

Middle School - Grades 6-8

While early adolescence is often considered a difficult time in a child’s life, Sage Ridge teachers see it as a rich and rewarding time of growth.

Our teachers meet the challenges of these years because they possess content knowledge, teaching expertise, and a deep understanding of how to support social-emotional learning. Students enter grade 7 as concrete observers and leave grade 8 with the capacity to analyze and think abstractly about complex problems while developing a strong sense of self. 

  • Laptops are fully integrated into our grades 6-8 curriculum.
  • Students take physical education every day and have a daily rotation of arts (music, theater, or visual art) and computer programming classes.
  • Computer programming classes focus on Robotics and JavaScript.
  • Laboratory science classes are part of our core curriculum.
  • Advanced math is available for accelerated learners.
  • Foreign language classes start in grade 6, with students taking one semester each of Latin and Spanish. Starting in grade 7, students choose one language on which to focus.

Upper School - grades 9-12

At Sage Ridge we understand that our Upper School launches a student’s future. 

High school is a time for students to discover their passions while engaging in rigorous critical thinking and gaining mastery of academic disciplines.

Leadership skills are cultivated through vast opportunities to create a lasting impact.

Captain a sport. Start a club. Become the Editor-in-Chief. Propose an Independent Study. Gather support for your Student Government campaign. Sit on the state board for the Junior Classical League. Star in the play. Present at a research conference. Intern at Tesla. 

We will support your dreams, so don't delay.

Do something with your wild, precious life.
