Principal's Greeting

Greetings Red Wolf Family and Visitors!

If you are currently a student or family member, you already know that Cedar Ridge High School is an extremely exciting place to be. If you are looking at this website for the first time and are interested in finding out more about Cedar Ridge High School, you have come to the right place. We are a dynamic, comprehensive high school seeking to provide the highest quality educational experience for our students. Our students consistently perform above local, state, and national norms on standardized measures of achievement. More importantly, our students are outstanding learners and capable leaders in the classroom and beyond. Together with our faculty and staff, our students explore the interactive nature of learning, seeking to apply what they learn to new and interesting endeavors.

Cedar Ridge High School is striving to solidify itself as a Professional Learning Community, a powerful staff development approach and a potent strategy for school change and improvement. The literature on Professional Learning Communities consistently gives attention to five attributes of such organizational arrangements: supportive and shared leadership, collective creativity, shared values and vision, supportive conditions, and shared personal practice (DuFour, R., DuFour, R., Eaker, R., Many, T., Learning by Doing: A Handbook for Professional Learning Communities at Work, 2006). At Cedar Ridge High School, we believe that the role and influence of building effective Professional Learning Communities within the school environment can positively impact student achievement and enhance rapport between staff and students.

At Cedar Ridge High School, we are proud of our student and faculty accomplishments. We offer a wide variety of Honors and Advanced Placement courses, as well as the International Baccalaureate Programme. We also offer a wide range of opportunities for student success and encourage all students to become actively involved in the school community. We offer over 60 athletic, co- and extra-curricular activities, and our student-athletes excel in all of these areas. From our 13 Conference Championships and 26 individual state championships to the 17 faculty members that have earned National Board Certification, there is an amazing array of accomplishments, both individually and collectively, of which our students, faculty and community can be proud of.

We know that to achieve our goal of becoming a North Carolina Honor School of Excellence, we must also excel in our ability to communicate with our local community. Within this website, you will find a wide array of useful information about our school. As always, we encourage you to contact us directly should you need specific information not contained on our website. You can also click here to view the CRHS brochure that highlights our school.

It is my great pleasure to serve this school and community. If you have any additional questions or wish to contact me directly, you may do so by calling me at (919) 245-4000 extension 21001, or by sending me an email toheather.blackmon@orange.k12.nc.us

Again, welcome to Cedar Ridge High School!
