Welcome to Ridgeview Elementary! Home of the Cougars!

I am Courtney Schumacher, the proud principal of Ridgeview Elementary. This school has a prestige reputation as the #1 Title 1 school in Clay County. In addition, we are recognized by the FLDOE as a School of Excellence because of our academic success. Teachers and staff come to school excited and prepared to support students in reaching their fullest potential. In addition to high expectations academically we have high expectations for behavior as well. Here at RVE we show (P.R.I.D.E.)Perseverance, Respect, Integrity, Dependability, and Empathy. This is represented throughout our campus as teachers and students spend time each week discussing these character traits and look for opportunities to demonstrate them around campus.

Ridgeview Elementary serves approximately 600 students. We have five resources where students attend one each day; Art, Media, Music, P.E., and Technology. In addition, we have extracurricular activities such as Safety Patrol, Book Club, Math Club, Track Club and more! Ridgeview Elementary is a great place to learn and grow!
