|Welcome to Georgetown-Ridge Farm!|
The Parent Portal is now available for parents to connect with the progress of their student. Click on the title above to go to the website!
If you would like to watch a 15-minute instructional video on using the portal, click here! You will have to choose run or save. Run is fine, then you will probably have to choose run again. It will take a few minutes (depending upon your internet connection) to download, then a few more minutes to load. Just be patient.
There is a mobile app for the iPhone for the parent portal. You can go to www.sti-k12.com to download the app.

In the society of today and tomorrow, changes in technology have brought about an explosion of knowledge unprecedented in any other time of history. The school's role in this world is becoming one of teaching the individual to make use of this knowledge and create new knowledge, new technology, new markets, and new ideas.
We have become a learning society, constantly gathering information, analyzing it, refining it, and creating new information to begin the cycle over again. This district's mission of educating its youth must now provide, within its existing resources, a base for successfully participating in this new society and to direct focus on the means with which those young people will achieve a degree of success. That must must include:
To help students meet the demands and challenges society makes of the individual, the high school should be committed to providing useful educational experiences for all students. This can be accomplished through community support, a competent staff, and a well-defined curriculum within a flexible framework that provides materials and experiences that are appropriate to the individual learner. To support the worth and dignity of the individual, the high school should provide a supportive environment through guidance, counseling, encouragement, and positive interaction with the staff.
Georgetown-Ridge Farm Foundation
Children of the Georgetown-Ridge Farm School District deserve the very best education that we, as a community can provide. The future growth and vitality of this community is dependent, first and foremost, on the quality of its youth and nothing affects that quality more than the educational opportunities available to every student.
It is with that truth in mind that a group of concerned local citizens have volunteered their time and energy to the creation of the first-ever charitable foundation whose sole purpose is to improve and enhance the learning experience of every child attending our schools. All donations by citizens and businesses to the Georgetown-Ridge Farm Educational Foundation (GRF-EFI) are tax deductible and GRF-EFI will provide every donor with a written acknowledgement of their gift.
GRF-EFI is governed by a board of seven local citizens who have the sole discretion of determining where donated funds can provide the greatest benefit. Community input on project ideas and student needs are welcome and essential to the success of the program.
Please consider giving! We thank you.
