Principal’s Message

Ridge Mascot

Dear Students, Staff and Families,

It is my pleasure to welcome you to Ridge Mills Elementary School! As your principal, I am honored to lead a school known for its dedication to excellence, but most importantly, to children. Our caring and committed staff work diligently to motivate, encourage and inspire all students to learn and grow. We provide rigorous and engaging instruction in all core areas as well as in music, art, physical education, library, and computer. While high standards for students are universal, our team of educators makes a point to know the unique needs, learning styles and personalities of each student to support them to achieve their greatest potential.

We are equally committed to cultivating young people of high moral character. Ridge Mills offers a positive, friendly atmosphere where students can learn and grow. Kindness, dignity, respect, and safety are cornerstones of our daily practice. All members of our school family are appreciated for their worth and value.

At Ridge Mills, community is everything. Teamwork with families and the community lead to the best outcomes for students and we invite you to be an active partner in your child’s education. Whether it is as a volunteer, a member of our outstanding Parent Teacher Group (PTG) or a special event participant, we urge you to be involved.

If I can be of any assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me, my door is always open. I can be reached at and followed on Twitter at: @Michaelflagg25. I am looking forward to sharing a wonderful school year with all of you!

Michael W. Flagg,
