Relationships and Responsibility
Ridge View involves the community as much as possible to develop our student’s values of relationship building, community building and responsibility. Students have volunteered thousands of hours to community organizations and faith-based groups that were selected to allow students to work hand-in-hand with other volunteers, while developing respect, empathy and compassion.
These organizations include: Praying Hands Ranch, Second Wind Suicide Prevention 5K Race, Special Olympics, National Disabled Veterans Winter Sports Clinic, Our Lady of Loreto, Down Syndrome Walk, Vitality Walk, Habitat for Humanity and the Denver Mural Project.
Due to these opportunities, Ridge View students were awarded the Special Olympics Organization Volunteer of the Year, Arapahoe County Parks and Recreation Volunteer of the Year, and received an Honorary Proclamation by former Governor, Bill Owens, proclaiming May 27, 2004 as Rite of Passage Day.
