Ridgeline Montessori Public Charter School
This year’s Direct Donation Drive is officially here! Flow is the "magic" of a focused student and a humming classroom. Flow is key to growth and thriving. Flow and how it helps us grow is this year's DDD theme!
The DDD is Ridgeline's annual just-give-and-feel-good-about-it fundraising campaign. Our goal is the same as last year: raise $10,000 in 10 days and earn a matching $10,000 gift. You can donate right here, right now if you’d like! Every gift matters!
The 2023-2024 lottery has been completed! Please check your email or text messages for your lottery results.
Once families receive notification of an offered seat they will be given 72 hours (excluding weekends) to accept or decline their seat. Families will be sent emails with their placement on the waitlist. They can also use their application link to check on their status at any time.
Publicly funded; no tuition
Experienced state-licensed and Montessori-certified teachers
“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.”
Empowering creative learners to build community and thoughtfully shape the world through public Montessori education.
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.

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.
WINTER WEATHER: SNOW DAY INFORMATION
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.
