Arbor Ridge K8 provides a quality education through shared responsibility in a safe and supportive environment for all students to meet the challenges of a global society.
We are “Soaring towards Excellence” each and everyday, and we work hard to make this site a primary source for timely information for all users, and a main gateway for improved communication between parents, teachers, students and other members of our community. Our goal and responsibility is to help each student develop an enthusiasm for learning, a respect for self and others, and the skills to become a creative independent thinker and problem solver.
