Arapahoe Ridge Elementary joyfully engages all learners to be critical thinkers who are empowered to reach their highest potential.
Teachers at Arapahoe Ridge are highly trained — 80 percent hold master’s degrees — and, on average, have been with the school more than 12 years. Arapahoe Ridge staff work together to instill a deep love of learning in each student, while helping them grow emotionally, socially and academically.
Outside of the classroom, more than 200 students participate in Arapahoe Ridge’s afterschool activities, including drama club, choir, student leadership, book club and school newspaper. The school’s active Parent-Teacher Organization (PTO) coordinates several schoolwide community events, including a Halloween Trunk-or-Treat event, Muffins with Mom, Donuts with Dad and an annual Celebration of Learning.
Together, parents and teachers work to help students succeed in an encouraging, safe and engaging learning environment.
