Ridgeline Montessori Public Charter School

“Our aim is not only to make the child understand, and still less to force him to memorize, but so to touch his imagination as to enthuse him to his innermost core.”

—Maria Montessori

Our Vision

Empowering creative learners to build community and thoughtfully shape the world through public Montessori education.

Our Mission

We provide an academically rigorous Montessori education. Students balance their freedom to explore and think for themselves with their responsibility to work and learn within a community.

Our Equity and Inclusion Statement

Ridgeline is deeply committed to providing each student with equal opportunities regardless of age, gender, sexual orientation, race, religion, color, national origin, and disability. We welcome all who choose a public Montessori education. Please see our full Equity and Inclusion Statement.

Inclement Weather Policy

NO NEWS = N0 CHANGE. If schools are on their regular schedule there will NOT be an announcement.

School Closure = No school for students. Decisions about afternoon/evening activities will be made by noon.

Two-Hour Delay: School starts two hours late and ends at the usual school dismissal time. If a delay occurs on an early release Friday, school will still be dismissed at the early release time.

Ridgeline Montessori Public Charter School values safety. Neither 4J nor Ridgeline can make a decision based on conditions near individual families. Families are encouraged to consider road and sidewalk conditions in their areas and make decisions based on safety. Ridgeline honors families’ decisions about school attendance in these conditions.


In the case of inclement weather that would make roads, school parking lots, driveways or sidewalks unsafe for travel, please watch for notification on http://www.ridgeline.org.

Ridgeline may be in session on a day when 4J district schools happens to be out of session. In this case, Ridgeline will make the announcement on our website.

Ridgeline will follow the 4j district’s decisions regarding school closures and two-hour delays on days when the Ridgeline calendar aligns with the 4j school district calendar. 4j school district communicates any decision to change school schedules as quickly as possible in several ways, all well before 6:30 a.m.
