Principal's Message

Dear Ramapo Ridge Families:

This is a great time to be part of the Ramapo Ridge Middle School family!  We remain engaged in advancing our programs, facilities, communication, services, and technology in exciting directions to offer the best middle school experience for our students, families, and staff.     

We welcome an incoming class of 200 sixth grade students as well as all new families to our school community.  Our total student enrollment is projected to be over 620 students this year. We are confident that this school year will be comprised of inspiring breakthroughs, new discoveries, meaningful experiences, and rewarding moments through the collective commitment of our amazing students, supportive parents/guardians, and caring educators and professionals.

Our 2024-2025 school theme is: Commit to GRIT. 

Grit is defined as passion and perseverance for long-term goals.  We believe passion and perseverance are essential elements, especially during the middle school years, as students continue to learn about themselves and shape their future goals.  Our staff is looking forward to partnering with parents/guardians to help students build upon their strengths, acquire new skills and healthy habits, and embrace positive opportunities in their overall growth and development. 

Along with the other schools in our district, we will continue to work towards our Strategic Plan goals and objectives.  As we engage this exciting work with our students and families, we will foster a learning environment that supports students’ health and safety (physically and emotionally) and provides learning experiences to support their development and future pathways.  We will build students’ capacities in the areas of collaboration, critical, and creative thinking through our curriculum and programs. We will create meaningful, real-world experiences for our students, including with community-based experts, and enhance overall school community communication and partnerships.  To learn more, please visit our district Strategic Planning page.

Ramapo Ridge Middle School values and welcomes feedback, ideas, concerns, and active participation from our parents/guardians!  We encourage parents/guardians to review our Effective Communication guides to connect with an appropriate team member for assistance.  Our School Contact Information and the RRMS Administrative Team is posted on our web page along with additional information/resources and updated headlines, features, and announcements.
