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!

About Us

We are located in Citrus Springs, Florida, which can be found in the north eastern part of rural Citrus County. We sit upon the Brooksville Ridge, an area of elevated land (29m above sea level) that runs from north to south through Citrus and Hernando Counties.  Click here for a map of Central Ridge.
