Cedar Ridge renovations completed

The school opened for students on November 27, 2017

In 2008 when voters approved a bond measure to build a new high school, possibilities opened up for the campus on Bluff Road.

Two seriously deteriorated buildings on the campus were razed in 2015, including the North Building, originally built as a bus barn and used in later years as classrooms, and the old modular building that was behind the school near the tennis courts.

Renovations to the main school building began in early spring 2017. The campus has been transformed and now has the capacity to effectively accommodate Cedar Ridge students. The student capacity is approximately 650.
