“Blue Ridge schools have provided our kids, Jaton (2021) and Gracie (2023), with engaging educational opportunities, a variety of extracurricular activities, and passionate teachers/leaders. We love our small district- we’ve always felt welcome to be involved with their education and activities!”

Bateman Family

We've had such a great experience for our children at Blue Ridge. We love the small community environment: teachers that truly care and show up for our kids (you'll spot them at ball games and dance recitals), classes that feel like families, and opportunities for parents to be involved.

Buchanan Family

Paul & I grew up in Farmer City and knew we wanted to stay in district. We have been adamant with our girls that you are either part of a problem or part of a solution. We have encouraged them to be active participants in their school and community. We are grateful for the many opportunities!
