East Ridge Elementary is a Leader in Me School. We have over 25 languages spoken at ERES. We celebrate our diversity. We believe that change starts with me, that educators empower students to lead their own learning, that everyone has genius, that we need to develop the whole person, and that everyone can be a leader. It is important to us that our students know they are not only our future leaders – they are today’s leaders. We are proud Pioneers at the school where learners and leaders shine.

“Leadership is communicating people’s worth and potential 
so clearly that they are inspired to see it in themselves.”  
Dr. Stephen Covey
