Lake Ridge School is located in the rapidly developing area of north Johnson City that is quickly changing from a rural setting to a suburban community. The school sits atop a hill overlooking Boone Lake and is surrounded by neighborhoods.
In the lobby of the school, a brick sculpture displays Tennessee symbols, which can be found throughout the building in the six academic pods. The firefly, raccoon, box turtle, mockingbird, tulip poplar, and the iris are used in murals to identify each pod. The professionally painted murals were created by local artist, Leanne Agee. Ms. Agee received a community award for her work in the school. Also included in the paintings is an "Explorer" which was chosen as the school mascot in the fall of 1998. Students and visitors are guided through the building by the maps the Explorer holds.
