Principal's Message

Dear Visitors, 

Welcome to the East Ridge Middle School (ERMS) website. Please take a moment to explore what makes ERMS a special place to learn and to work.

Our goal at ERMS is to support the growth and development of the whole child in reaching their full potential. We focus on both academics and social emotional learning. Implementing a rigorous curriculum, fostering students' passions for art and music, promoting an empathetic and inclusive space for all students, cultivating a love of learning, and working with students to develop the skills necessary to positively contribute to their community, are all ways in which we accomplish our mission.

We invite you to continue reading the principal's message in its entirety.
