The City of Ridgeland has long valued quality education, and it shows in the dedication of our teachers, staff and administration. Our schools, at every level, are top notch and focus on supporting students through their academic journey.
Ridgeland schools boast the highest rating in the state. Ridgeland is also home to a community college, a technical college and private schools.
Talented teachers and small class sizes provide an opportunity for all students to receive the personal attention necessary for success in the classroom.
Ridgeland students not only excel in academics statewide, but also enjoy success in sports and music. More importantly, Ridgeland schools mirror a community spirit where cooperation builds respect for cultural, ethnic and religious differences. Ann E. Smith Elementary, Highland Elementary, Olde Towne Middle School and Ridgeland High School are rated Level 5 for excellence in the state.
In addition to public schools, many private institutions provide options for preschool, elementary, middle and high school students. Young adults seeking a quality college education can achieve their goals at Holmes Community College; Belhaven University or Delta Technical College.
