Skyridge has its roots in the original Auburn Grammar School and Lincoln Way School. In 1990, Skyridge moved to its present location, housed in portables until construction was completed in 1994. Skyridge serves students in transitional kindergarten through fifth grade with an approximate enrollment of 380. The Skyridge mascot is the falcon and the school colors are green and white.
Skyridge students are served by a fully credentialed staff of one principal, 16 regular classroom teachers, one RSP/Learning Center teacher; and the following part-time specialists: a speech therapist, a psychologist, a mental health specialist, a PE and a music teacher. The District Coordinator of Special Education provides support for our fully included children with special needs. Support staff includes School Administrative Assistant, School Office Assistant, Health Assistant, Instructional aides, Severely Handicapped and Special Needs aides, adult crossing guards, noon duty aides, maintenance custodian, evening custodian, and cafeteria staff. We have a Computer Lab Technician and Library Technician.
Skyridge has an active PTC that vigorously supports our staff and students. Many of the accomplishments of the students and school are made possible through the financial support and effort of the PTC volunteers. PTC provides funds for student assemblies, classroom supplies, student awards, family events, classroom Art Docents, and informational educational programs for parents, students and teachers. PTC meetings are announced in the weekly Principal's email, on the school marquee, and on the school website calendar.
Skyridge students participate in a variety of student leadership activities throughout the school year such as Chess Club, Changemakers Club, Cross Country/Track, Dance Club, Destination Imagination, Drama Club, GLOBE (a NASA science program), International Day, Jog-a-thon, MathLeague, Science Fair, Spelling Bee, STEM Projects, Student Council, Trekkers, and more.
