At Cedar Ridge, we recognize that the successful adults of tomorrow will require a much broader and deeper high school program than the previous generation and we are committed to providing engaging programs so that our students can find their place in a very different world. Cedar Ridge High School is committed to providing the skills, knowledge and experiences to our students to ensure they graduate as confident, compassionate and contributing adults. At Cedar Ridge High School we know the world is changing, that's why we are changing education.
Cedar Ridge is a new high school in Kanata built on the great work of Kanata Montessori, a school with 40 years of experience in private education. Cedar Ridge was inspired by start –up culture. At Cedar Ridge we know we can't teach tomorrow's leaders in yesterday's classrooms. Our high school offers students the opportunity to learn in a one of a kind modern learning commons. Resembling a modern start-up space, our school environment is designed to facilitate communication, collaboration and creativity. The space allows students to easily work in large groups, small groups and independently. Our 21st Century learning space fuels innovation, teamwork and critical thinking.
On a personal note, I'm amazed by our students. I've watched students calmly and professionally develop school policies. I’ve seen shy students present in front of over 200 people. At Cedar Ridge students believe in themselves. They are challenged by their educators and their peers. Our innovative learning environment helps them become independent thinkers and learners.
At Cedar Ridge we know the world is changing, that's why we're changing education. Come and see for yourself how we educate today's student in tomorrow's classroom.
