Welcome to Pheasant Ridge Primary School - Home of the Roadrunners!
Pheasant Ridge is more than a place to learn, it’s a community! We are a kindergarten through third grade school, and serve approximately 300 students. The vision of Pheasant Ridge is to inspire learning through partnerships and diversity. We believe that working with families and the community will best support the child as a whole. We emphasize high expectations for academics and learning, while creating a culture of warmth and caring for all students, staff, and the greater community. From the moment you walk into our building, you will be greeted with smiling faces from our wonderful secretaries and office staff. As you walk through the halls, you will see student work on display, and classrooms that are engaging and fun. You will hear collaborative conversations between both students and staff members. You will feel the compassion and acceptance that is displayed throughout the day at Pheasant Ridge.
At Pheasant Ridge we believe in a positive learning environment that is safe for all staff, students, and the community. We believe that in order to promote good character, we need to model it at all times, as well as embed social emotional learning in our everyday lessons. To accompany our positive learning environment, we also believe that all students are entitled to an accessible curriculum aligned to high standards delivered through research based instruction. Because of these beliefs, our teachers work diligently to help students experience success. Pheasant Ridge team members understand that not all students learn at the same rate or in the same way, so they adapt. Our educators are compassionate towards students’ needs in all areas as we know that we must adapt to individual needs to best foster growth. Part of our day is dedicated to giving students in the entire school targeted practice at their instructional level. This is our school-wide intervention block where all team members help support small groups of students across grade levels
Pheasant Ridge Roadrunners have the opportunity to participate in a variety of activities that allow them to explore their interests both inside and outside of the school day. Some of the after school clubs and activities include: Girls on the Run, Dance Club, Young Rembrandts, and a Newspaper Club. Within our school day all students will participate in a STEM class, some classes will participate in Junior Achievement, visits from our library, a recorder club that meets during lunch, a recycling club, and the opportunity to adopt a shelf in our library!
We work closely with our parents and the community. Between our school and our involved PTO, we host a variety of events for students and families. We have field day, a Spring Carnival, open house, movie nights, Trunk or Treat, author visits, class parties, ice cream socials, book fairs, and family fun nights! We partner with the Glendale Heights Character Counts Coalition to honor students who show outstanding character in one of the six pillars of Quantum Learning. We value communication and working as a partnership with our parents and look forward to speaking with you to ensure your child(ren) have a successful school year! We are proud to serve this community and our families!
