Ridge Park Elementary School is home to the K-3 autistic support classrooms — and a supportive learning community focused on accepting differences.
Throughout Colonial School District, students and staff find ways to make differences in our classrooms, schools and community.
Their acts help Colonial serve as a warm and welcoming place where children feel safe and comfortable while learning their academics -- as well as providing opportunities for students to learn how to contribute to the greater good.
These are some of their stories.
