/ ABOUT PINE RIDGE

Welcome to Pine Ridge! A wonderful place where “equipping minds and nurturing hearts to transform the world for Jesus Christ” is not only our mission, but also our hearts’ desire in classwork, in projects, and in relationships with one another!

Pine Ridge is a unique third grade through fifth grade school, with caring teachers guiding and mentoring students through their educational journey at Holland Christian Schools. At Pine Ridge we emphasize a love for learning and growing together. Teachers are eager to learn about each child’s unique and special gifting that God has placed in them. We strive to help students make the sometimes tricky transition from dependent learning to more independent learning. At all levels, one-to-one technology is an integral part of the educational experience with third and fourth grade students using iPads and fifth grade students using laptops.

Feel free to visit the whole HCS website. There you will find not only great information and helpful facts, but most importantly passionate and joy filled pictures that highlight student learning at and around Pine Ridge. We invite you to read the newsletters and view the photos of various learning units, field trips, school events, and chapels. You might also want to check out our delicious lunch menu, search our media center links, and see our daily school schedule.

After you visit us virtually, please stop in and tour our campus. We would love to meet you and show you all the wonder of Pine Ridge in person!
