Why Choose Lake Ridge Elementary?

We recognize that parents have an increasing number of choices in where their child is educated. Lake Ridge Elementary has developed a premier instructional approach that sets students on the pathway to college and career readiness. Through Project Based Learning (PBL), our students work cooperatively in the exploration of real-world challenges. The evidence of this can be experienced firsthand by attending one of our Exhibition events or by stopping by for a scheduled visit.
