"I Have a Dream"
Public schools play a unique and vital role in our communities in that they are one of the few institutions to bring people from all walks of life together to learn to interact and belong respectfully in the same space.
We take this duty and responsibility seriously at Ridgeline Middle School, and we work to create a safe and welcoming environment where students can learn at high levels and families feel a sense of inclusion, belonging, and connection to our school community. At Ridgeline, we believe in accepting people for who they are. We believe in respecting all differences and learning to communicate and work together to live meaningful, productive, and joyful lives.
This belief aligns with the legacy and life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., who we will celebrate and honor on with a schoolwide virtual assembly.
Dr. King and his message of inclusion, belonging, and respecting differences is the reason we have a federal holiday on January 17th.
