Clover Ridge Elementary...
A Place for Developing Respectful, Responsible, Lifelong Learners

Clover Ridge serves almost 700 students in grades 1 through 5.  We offer complete
educational programming including the core subjects of reading, writing, math, social
studies, and science as well as a strong specialist programming of art, music,
technology, media, and physical education.

Our staff is committed to our building’s mission: To develop self-directed, responsible, life-long learners through exceptional, personalized learning.

We are proud to have been selected as a Minnesota School of Excellence in 2009 by the Minnesota Elementary School Principals’ Association. This was a great honor that we work hard to uphold every day! For the past two years, our students and staff were trained using the PBIS (Positive Behavioral Interventions and Support) model which guides our work with social, emotional and academic outcomes with students. Our building received a 100% adoption rating from an outside evaluator.

We offer multiple instructional models including flexible grouping, continuous progress, and personalized learning experiences which best meet student’s needs. Our focus is to offer student voice through guided choice, purposeful instruction and assessment, purposeful learning, collaborative environment and engagement with learning tools.

Our community of learners continues to choose to make a difference in the lives of others, each and every day!  We invite you to browse our website, Twitter and Facebook accounts for real time information about our students and activities!
