A Message to Parents from Marty Fiedler, Principal



Welcome to our website, where you will find a wealth of useful material - whether you're seeking specific information that relates to your child or general information about East Ridge.


Our school serves 773  students in grades 6-8. We believe in the team approach to teaching, so each grade has three teams and each team has one teacher in each of the four core subjects: math, social studies, science, and English.Teaming lets us divide a large grade into smaller learning communities. Students benefit from belonging to a small group, and team teachers have the opportunity to meet regularly to discuss student achievements and challenges, and to plan activities, field trips and co-curricular lessons.

Each grade has an assistant principal and a guidance counselor. The assistant principal and guidance counselor oversee the same group of students for three years. This ensures continuity for students and staff.

Middle-level students require a range of academic, social, co-curricular, and extra-curricular experiences. We offer stimulating and developmentally appropriate academic programs, which include a variety of subjects and opportunities to meet our students' diverse needs and desires.
