Headmaster's Message

Dear Ridgecroft Families & Friends,

It is with great excitement that I write this letter as the new Headmaster of Ridgecroft School. I am honored to have the opportunity to lead a school with such a rich tradition of education and excellence. Even though I have only had limited interactions with students, parents and friends, I can already tell Ridgecroft is a special place that I am extremely excited to be part of.

I have been dedicated to the field of education for more than 30 years, working in NC public schools as a teacher, instructional/curriculum specialist, assistant principal and principal. Most recently I served as an Associate Professor of Education at Chowan University for seven years.

I believe wholeheartedly that every student deserves a quality education, and that only happens when the school, its families and community work together for the best interests of our young people. With that in mind, I look forward to working together to ensure Ridgecroft remains the premier independent school in our area.

In closing, please know that my door is always open and I look forward to meeting all of you. I look forward to the start of what I know will be a great year for everyone!

Best Regards,

Russell Johnson

Headmaster
