     Welcome to Central Ridge Elementary School, Citrus County's Newest School! We opened our doors to students for the first time on August 18th, 2008. We are excited for the opportunity to work with our parents and the community to provide the education every child deserves.  The teachers and staff at Central Ridge strive to maintain the educational excellence that parents have come to expect of the Citrus County School District. The State of Florida has rated Citrus County School District as a top rated district in the  state.
      We are committed at Central Ridge to provide all of our students with the academic and social skills to promote a healthy, and successful educational career both after elementary school and beyond.  Together, we CAN make a difference!
