Home-to-School Partnership

Our Lower School experience is also based on a home-to-school partnership that invites parents to be involved in the journey with their child. Workshops and seminars equip parents with the resources they need to feel engaged in their child’s Ridley experience.

Volunteer committees provide parents with opportunities to help us develop and evolve the direction of Lower School education, and a wide range of on-campus activities enrich family life.
