Please mark your calendars for the upcoming Pasco Pathways Expo event that will highlight the choices and innovative programs available in Pasco County for the 2021-22 school year. Pasco County Schools will host a virtual Expo style event on November 16th online from 5-8 p.m. All secondary schools in the designated area will be represented at the Expo as well as select elementary schools. River Ridge Middle School will be represented at the Expo. For registration information please visit the Pasco County Schools website at

In addition to the Expos, we want to be sure you are aware of the new School Choice and Magnet application process as well as the new choice window will be in January. If you are in 8th grade and are interested in Cambridge, IB, K-Tech, or are currently on school choice at River Ridge Middle School and would like the opportunity to continue at River Ridge High School, you will need to apply during this window. If you are a current River Ridge Middle School family who may be rezoned next year due to the opening of Starkey K-8, please make sure to read the FAQ document on the district website: All current 7th graders who will be 8th graders in the 21-22 school year will remain at RRMS and those 6th graders who will be 7th graders in the 21-22 school year who wish to stay at RRMS may apply for school choice with special transportation. If you have any questions, please review the rezoning information page on the district website.
