  • Cedar Ridge Elementary Logo What is your idea of "the best" elementary school?

    If your idea of "the best" involves a place where kids are safe and loved, while being challenged, respected and given every opportunity available to be successful, then Cedar Ridge Elementary is the place!  Our mission is to Challenge, Respect, Encourage and Succeed. TOGETHER, we make our school a success!

    Cedar Ridge Elementary will provide each student the opportunity to develop intellectually, physically, and socially in a safe and orderly environment.  We are committed to providing every student with the tools necessary to be globally competitive in the 21st century. 

    Cedar Ridge Elementary School, home of the Panthers, is located in Lowgap, NC. Located at the foot of Fisher's Peak, and surrounded by mountains, our 47-acre campus is as picturesque as any school in the state.  We serve approximately 400 students, each year, in grades Pre-K through 5th grade.
