  • From the Principal's Desk

    Dear Northridge High School Community,
    Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year at Northridge High School. We are The Ridge! Go Jags!
    I believe in service. I believe in creating memories for our students. I believe in being a thermostat instead of a thermometer. Meaning, we are going to set the standards of excellence and expectations of success on The Ridge for every student. 
    I enter my 38th year in education and my 28th as a building principal in both elementary and high schools. The expectation for our students is to graduate and either be enrolled in a post-secondary experience, be employed in a job leading to positive life-style, or be enlisted in military service for a career. That is "Triple E" excellence! 
    Finally, safety and security is our number one priority at Northridge High School. I will keep you informed through my "Principal Pages" throughout the year. The information contained in these newsletters via Facebook, Twitter and directly to your email are to do one thing and one thing only which is to keep you informed of The Ridge. I encourage you to take the time to read each one that comes to your "doorstep".  
    I tell my students all the time that I will never be their friend. But, I am going to love you and do everything that I can for you to graduate and be successful. Let's go make memories. Go Jags!
    J. Tygar Evans, Ed.D.
