Ox Ridge Entrance 2022

Principal's Message

Welcome to Ox Ridge Elementary School!

Ox Ridge is a Pre-K – 5 school deeply committed to serving the individualized educational needs of approximately 490 students. Exceptional faculty and staff work in concert with administration and families to achieve our shared mission of developing joyful, healthy, persistently curious learners.

All adults in the Ox Ridge school community serve as important members of your child’s extended learning family. Across our comprehensive curricula, students at Ox Ridge engage in:

  • Inquiry around meaningful ideas
  • Carefully supported risk taking
  • Kind and empathetic team work with peers and adults
  • Reflection on personal strengths and areas for continuous improvement
  • Growth in their love of learning
  • Contributing to a positive, healthy school climate for all

Our truly outstanding Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) strengthens the school community immeasurably. We encourage you to visit our PTO website to learn about and potentially participate in this vibrant organization.

Ox Ridge values open and on-going communication and recognizes that school-home partnership is vital in working together to successfully educate children. With that critical link in mind, I invite you to please feel free to contact your child’s teacher or either of us should you have questions or concerns throughout the school year!


Looking forward,

Mr. Chris Melillo - Principal
