East Ridge Middle School
Located in the south end of beautiful Lake County, Florida, East Ridge Middle School opened its doors in August of 2008 to over 1000 students in grades 6-8. While Florida itself is mostly flat, Clermont can boast about its many hills and beautiful panoramic sites including this middle school built high up on one of the tallest hills in the county.
While most of the hills were once covered with citrus groves, consecutive years of freezes played havoc with the citrus industry and a booming housing market created rapid growth to a community just 20 miles west of Orlando bringing with it an international flavor.
Just across the road from East Ridge High School, the opportunities for East Ridge Middle to partner with senior high students are numerous.
Our mission is to partner closely with the community we serve to intentionally motivate, inspire, and educate students in an en environment that values individualized and determined learning.
