At Pacific Ridge, our mission statement drives all of our work as a school. As you explore, you will see a community grounded in “academic excellence, ethical responsibility, and global engagement” with a multitude of programs that serve to “prepare students for college and a purposeful life.”

At the heart of Pacific Ridge School are the interactions between our students, their peers, and their teachers. “When I walk around campus, I am frequently struck by the sense of optimism, energy, and joy our students and faculty draw from one another. This is a community designed to give its members
space to grow; one that provides the opportunity to stretch, along with the support and guidance needed to
do it successfully. As our students challenge themselves academically, explore assumptions from new perspectives, and become aware of their roles as members of a global community, they discover the kinds of people they would like to become.”
– Dr. Bob Ogle, Head of School
