Pacific Ridge School opens doors to Athletic Center


Pacific Ridge School has reached a new milestone in its plans for campus expansion: the opening of its Athletic Center. The Carlsbad nonprofit, independent school, which opened in 2007 and includes grades 7-12, celebrated its opening with more than 1,000 fans in attendance. Pacific Ridge School reached this expansion goal thanks to the tremendous success of its Breaking New Ground fundraising campaign and the early completion of its energy-efficient high school building.

The 35,236 sq. foot Athletic Center is one of the largest and most state-of-the-art high school athletic centers in Southern California. The athletic center includes three regulation basketball/volleyball courts, training room, dance/yoga studio, state-of-the-art weight and conditioning room, coaches’ offices, locker rooms and showers, kitchenette for concessions, bleachers capable of seating 500 fans, and an outdoor viewing deck of the Astroturf field. The lobby serves as a Hall of Fame, showcasing photo and video montages on five flat-panel displays of the school’s athletic, academic, arts, global and service achievements.
