A Message From Principal Jessica Ridgway


I am honored to be the principal at Goldrick Elementary School, and I am thrilled to work with our tremendous staff and community to provide a loving and joyous academic atmosphere where your children will thrive.

In my time as an assistant principal at STRIVE Preparatory–Sunnyside, I saw first-hand that children excel in a school that sets high expectations and provides personalized instruction. While I was at STRIVE, students achieved the highest statewide median growth percentile in math and led all DPS middle schools in academic growth at various points. Goldrick provides the necessary support for students to achieve similar success.

Our faculty and staff believe that every voice matters, every person is special and we are stronger when we work together. We believe that it is our responsibility to empower students by holding them to high expectations, anchoring academics in student heritage and learning about students’ cultures and values.

I invite you to visit our school, meet our teachers and staff and learn more about our approach.
