We Will SOAR!

Top of Page

Due to the devastation caused by the 2018 Camp Fire, Paradise Elementary School and Ponderosa Elementary School merged together to create  Paradise Ridge Elementary School.  From day one, our school's focus is to provide an engaging and balanced education with a concentrated focus on the sciences and fine arts. 
We are committed to providing our students with a nurturing and positive school environment focused on meeting their socioemotional needs.  We appreciate our partnership with Mindful Littles in providing timely and relevant mindfulness lessons to help our students develop the skills and mindset to cope with life's challenges.
Our school motto is We Will SOAR!  SOAR is an acronym that represents our schoolwide expectations which are:
  • Show Kindness
  • Outstanding Conduct
  • Achieve Your Best
  • Reach for Excellence
