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 184 sixth grade students as well as all new families to our school community.  Our total student enrollment is projected to be over 615 students this year. We are confident that this school year will be comprised of inspiring breakthroughs, new discoveries, meaningful experiences, and rewarding moments. These achievements and indicators of success will be realized through the collective commitment of our amazing students, supportive parents/guardians, and caring educators and professionals.

Our 2023-2024 school theme is: Elevate and Soar. 

Our staff is looking forward to partnering with our parents/guardians to help students reach new heights in their growth and development this school year.  Together, we will build upon students’ strengths and cultivate new skills and habits to support students in embracing new opportunities and lessons and sustaining positive results. 

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 school website.
