School Overview

What started with a modest pilot in one math teacher's 7th-grade classroom has rapidly expanded to a full-scale, expansive blended-learning program at Ridge Middle School, a public middle school with about 600 students in Mentor, Ohio. After launching a blended-learning program for all 7th-grade students in the 2013-14 school year, Ridge expanded its program the following year to include all teachers, students, and subjects. School leaders choose to provide a variety of software programs and resources for students and teachers to use on their iPads; teachers then have the freedom to select from this array of products in order to customize a blended-learning curriculum most-suited to the needs of their students. Ridge redesigned all of its classrooms to facilitate flexibility in the learning process and allow for student comfort. Using a variation of a Station Rotation model, teachers at Ridge Middle School focus primarily on small group instruction while leveraging new learning strategies and technologies to ultimately create a differentiated and fulfilling learning experience for each student.
