A Message from Our Principal

Dear Kings Ridge Preparatory Family and Friends,

This year at Kings Ridge Preparatory Academy, we will encourage all children to embrace the values of commitment, integrity, and achievement in their daily choices and interactions. Through our commitment to our students and a practiced sense of integrity, we know that this will be a special year of growth, development, and achievement for your child.

Kings Ridge Preparatory Academy has adopted the Assertive Discipline theory. The Assertive Discipline model embraces the premise that students choose to behave as they do, and therefore schools should structure their environments in such a way that students choose to behave in an acceptable manner. In addition, administrators and parents are expected to support the teacher in enforcing the pre-set rules. Teachers express their expectations to their students and prepare to act if students do not meet those expectations. Assertive Discipline believes that teachers are in charge of the classroom and that they have the right to teach without interruptions. The program offers the following value statements as they relate to the classroom teacher:

  • You have the right and the responsibility to establish rules and directions that clearly define the limits of acceptable and unacceptable student behavior.
  • You have the right and responsibility to be supportive of those students who are not disruptive.
  • You have the right and responsibility to teach students to consistently follow these rules and directions throughout the school day and school year.
  • You have the right and the responsibility to ask for assistance from parents and administrators.

Please visit with your child about this new initiative to ensure a successful and uninterrupted educational experience.

I would encourage all parents to contact our teachers to improve the channels of communication. Be sure to check this website periodically, as we update it often with important information and news. In addition, please call or e-mail me with any suggestions or comments about what we are doing at Kings Ridge School, as we are always striving to be the best that we can be.

Sincerely,

Talmadge Tanks

Mr. Talmadge Tanks
Principal
