Lake Ridge named Reward School by TDOE
Lake Ridge Elementary has been named a Reward School, the highest distinction from the Tennessee Department of Education, for the second consecutive year.
“My heart swells with joy and pride as I consider this repeat recognition of our students, faculty, and staff,” Lake Ridge Principal Renee Wood said. “I am honored to work alongside dedicated educators who inspire their students each day to accomplish academic and developmental goals. Equally, I proudly serve a student body who has an immense hunger for learning and accomplishment. It’s a proud day to be an Explorer and future Topper!”
Other Johnson City Schools named Reward Schools include Cherokee Elementary, South Side Elementary, Towne Acres Elementary and Woodland Elementary. For the 2018-2019 school year, there were 427 Reward Schools across the state. Reward schools are those that are improving overall student academic achievement and student growth for both all students and for student groups, and they are identified annually.
