Sand Ridge Junior High School is part of  Weber School District and includes students in grades 7-9.  It is located in beautiful Roy, Utah, just west of Ogden, at the base of Roy High School. Sand Ridge Junior High currently has an enrollment of 860 students, 43 faculty members, and over 20 staff members.  The school opened its doors in the fall of 1970 to students from Roy, Hooper, West Haven and the surrounding areas. After Rocky Mountain Junior High opened in 1994, Sand Ridge served students from Roy almost exclusively.  Originally, the layout of the school was unique in that the interior of the building was open with no walls to separate classrooms. Since then, partitions and walls were constructed, and in 1992 the school was completely remodeled.  Built on a sandy ridge, the school colors of brown and gold, and the “Scorpion” mascot, remain symbolic of the landscape where Sand Ridge proudly stands. 

Sand Ridge is located near a Front Runner Station and boasts a beautiful park just to the north that is shared with Roy City.  Its athletic fields are magnificent and the school is known for its excellent faculty and diverse student body. The school offers courses in Gate Tech, Project Lead the Way, Creative Writing, Drama, Orchestra, Drama, and Foreign Languages.  Clubs like MESA, band, choir, and Science Olympiad are also available for student participation. Sand Ridge’s athletic teams have been top-tier in the district and the school’s Core Test Scores have been on the rise for the past 3 years. 

The school’s focus on, Be Respectful; Be Responsible; Be Safe, promotes a climate that is welcoming, inclusive, and dedicated to a safe learning environment. Students understand their important role in this effort and continue to be a good example in their daily activities at Sand Ridge.  Our theme for the year, Better Than You Found It, is a way to inspire all of us in the Sand Ridge community to be productive, positive and  uplifting in all things that we do and say. The staff at “The Ridge” are committed to this effort and appreciate a community that is equally dedicated.
