Welcome to Ramsey Elementary School
Thank you for visiting the home page of Ramsey Elementary. I am Kathleen Friend Principal of this amazing school. Our school is the largest of the five elementary schools in the Gateway School District, and is an ADA approved building. Ramsey opened in 1970, and was built adjacent to Beechwood Park, an 85 acre nature park belonging to the Municipality of Monroeville.
At Ramsey Elementary, we have approximately 325 students in grades K-4 with a student/teacher ratio of 20:1. There are 15 regular education classrooms along with four additional classrooms to support students with special needs. Each week, students participate in the regular curriculum that includes Math, Language Arts, Social Studies, Science, and Health. In addition to our regular curriculum, students also participate in Art, Physical Education, Music, and Library. Our computer lab is an active place where technology is used for instruction, research, and remediation. We also address student needs with our Title I Reading program, Speech Therapy, and Guidance. Our Reading Counts program provides students with a systematic way to foster independent reading. After school programs include Intramurals for Grade 4, Chess Club, and a variety of other community based activities.
Our theme at Ramsey Elementary is “Growth Toward Excellence!” As educators, we understand that all students learn at different rates and in different ways, and through Differentiated Instruction we can meet students at their educational level and provide them with instruction to allow them to grow toward excellence.
Ramsey Elementary is truly a special place because of the way our dedicated staff, volunteers, parents, and community work together to provide a safe and nurturing educational experience for our students.
