We believe all children can learn and we will have high expectations for all Derby Ridge students. We will work together to recognize, and build on, the strengths of each individual. It will be our job to create a safe and nurturing environment, provide appropriate social opportunities, and most importantly engage them in quality learning activities that produce high academic achievement.


Derby Ridge is pleased to be the pilot site for an innovative multi-generational service-learning project. College students will be paired with RSVP volunteers and as teams they will work with individual children enrolled in one of 8 kindergarten classrooms.
