Letter From Principal

Welcome to Mesa Ridge High School, home of the Grizzlies!

Mesa Ridge is a comprehensive four year, grades 9-12 high school located in southern Colorado Springs. We are tucked away in the community of Widefield/Security.  Mesa Ridge High School is a Professional Learning Community (PLC) school.  We provide our teachers with collaboration time for planning and data review.  Intervention strategies for student achievement are used on a regular basis to support the needs of every child.  Incentives are provided through Positive Behavior Support model and The Grizzly Way Program – Respect * Integrity * Excellence.  For more information, please visit the Whatever It Takes and The Grizzly Way pages.

We offer rigorous and challenging classes and course work such as, Honors, Advanced Placement, and dual college credit courses.  We have an experienced staff that offers an academically rich environment conducive to life-long learning. 

We are fortunate to offer Project Lead the Way courses, which provide a transformative learning experience for 9-12 students and teachers across the U.S. We create an engaging environment and empower students to develop in-demand knowledge and skills necessary to thrive in an evolving world.  PLTW gives students in high school a chance to apply what they know, identify problems, find unique solutions, and lead their own learning. There are three pathways presented, Engineering, Computer Science, and Biomedical Science.  We have the privilege to provide AVID, a postsecondary readiness program focused on preparing students for college.  We continue to offer vocation class at the Manufacturing Industry Learning Lab (M.I.L.L.) where students will have the opportunity to learn general construction and basic plumbing and electrical skills in the Construction Woods program and woodworking and manufacturing skills in the Peyton Woods program. 

Mesa Ridge is able to provide varied opportunities in the classroom – and beyond – that appeal to many different types of students. Students who come to our school quickly find a place and environment in which they can excel both socially and academically.

Mesa Ridge is an outstanding school with an enthusiastic staff eager to help all students succeed. Welcome to our web site.  WE ARE MESA RIDGE!!!

Scott Sage, Principal
