Located in Washington County in southwestern Pennsylvania, Ringgold School District serves 2800 children in four schools: one high school, one middle school, and two elementary schools.
Comprised of seven municipalities ranging from semi-urban to rural in nature, Ringgold School District thrives in an area rich with history, natural resources, and scenic beauty. A tour of our three campuses will take you through a succession of rolling hills and small towns dotting the panoramic countryside of the Monongahela Valley. The economy in this area is currently in transition from traditional industries to a center of technology and advanced manufacturing--with further professional opportunities provided by the school district, hospital, gas industry, and local businesses. You might never guess that our District is located just 28 miles south of Pittsburgh at the juncture of two major interstates (I-79 and I-70). This location makes us an ideal suburban community for many homeowners drawn to our recreational opportunities for boating, fishing, swimming, golfing and sports--as well as the strong neighborly spirit that characterizes our communities.
Our commitment to the Ringgold community is guided by our Strategic Improvement Plan and the four pillars that support it: the Student Experience, the Employee Experience, the Family & Community Experience, and Organizational Excellence.
Student Experience - We are committed to creating and sustaining an environment where students reach their full potential in their chosen pathway through rigorous, student-centered, teaching and learning.
Employee Experience - We are committed to providing a positive work culture that offers an elevated level of support and professional growth, while fostering good relationships and shared communication.
Family & Community Experience - We support student success through collaboration, communication, and partnering with families and the community to ensure students graduate with their peers prepared for their chosen pathway.
Organizational Excellence - We sustain safe learning environments while ensuring initiative-taking operational structures that are aligned directly to priorities that assure the success of all students.
