Once a Sabercat, Always a Sabercat

Resepct. Integrity. Determination. Gratitude. Excellence

Administration of our School

Our RIDGE values that define our Fossil family.  Respect, Integrity, Determination, Gratitude, and Excellence serve as the foundation for all that we do each day, and what we hope our students will take with them after graduation.  These RIDGE values translate into specific behaviors that build a positive school culture, where we recognize the dignity of every student and staff member.  The heart of a SaberCat is strong, compassionate, and filled with pride for our school and community. 

Our students have opportunities to earn college credit while in high school, through concurrent enrollment and AP courses.  Students can explore their passions and interests in our robust elective courses, complete work-based learning internships, apprenticeships, and career-based field trips.  We offer many leadership options for students during the school day and in over 65 school and student sponsored clubs, in addition to 27 varsity and unified Special Olympics sports.  Our coaches seek to inspire and develop our student athletes through honor, passion, and joy!  Our teachers and club sponsors help students learn lifelong skills such as a strong work-ethic, determination, and teamwork.

We hope that you take time to view many our programs and course offerings through our Counseling website.  Our RAMP certified counseling program and mental health team support students with college planning, social/emotional supports, and skill development in self-advocacy and problem-solving techniques that they will need after graduation.

The Fossil Ridge community is supportive, dedicated to success, and focused on developing supportive relationships.  Once a SaberCat, Always a SaberCat.
