About Our School


Our Mission

Provide the students of Hawk Ridge a Personalized Learning Environment by utilizing blended structures, intense data tracking and progress monitoring, individual learning paths, enhanced individual face to face opportunities with teachers, and a genuine integration of student interest to foster rapid mastery of grade level objectives and beyond.


Thank you for visiting the Hawk Ridge Elementary website.  The Hawk Ridge Community is extremely proud of the opportunities that we provide our students with every day. 

Our composite school performance on the 2015-16 and 2016-17 NC End-of-Grade tests was 87 percent, earning a designation of  A+NG.   This is the highest designation possible, indicating that no student subgroups had performance gaps higher than those at the state level.  Further, Hawk Ridge exceeded growth expectations each of the past two years.  In February of 2015, Hawk Ridge Elementary was featured in 50 Best American Elementary Schools with the #9 overall ranking.

The Hawk Ridge Faculty is dedicated to our students and works to do whatever it takes to ensure individual student success. Every day, our teachers depend on pre-asses​sment and formative assessment data to determine Personalized Instruction within each objective or reading behavior.  Hawk Ridge is a tech rich environment with a 1:1 device ratio in grades 3-5, and approximately 2:1 in K-2.  We also have a BYOT program. Our instructional assistants work throughout the building teaching small groups to support both the learners who are in need and students needing enrichment.  We currently have 49 certified staff, including administrative personnel. Of those, 42 percent are National Board-certified, 46 percent have master’s degrees and all are highly qualified professional educators. 

Our students enjoy the opportunity to be in one of our various school and parent sponsored clubs such as Drama Club, Student Council, Media, Girls on the Run, Let me Lead, Garden Club, Chorus, and Safety Patrol.  Hawk Ridge 5th Grade students also have the opportunity to take instrumentation lessons after school hours.  Development in clarinet, flute, trumpet, and trombone are offered. 

The Hawk Ridge community is very supportive of the school.  Hawk Ridge Volunteers generally log over 12,000 volunteer hours a year which is among the highest in CMS.

As we continue to refine our successful initiatives, we look forward to inspiring the possibilities for our school community.
