The Long Ridge School Board of Trustees are thrilled to announce that Carissa Lewis was named the new Head of School, succeeding current Interim Head of School John Ora.

Carissa Lewis came to The Long Ridge School over 10 years ago as an elementary classroom teacher and then in 2014 became the School's science specialist. Since joining Long Ridge, she has created the School's first robotics program and launched a SumoBot championship by partnering with other local independent schools. Lewis stepped up to the role of Assistant Head of School in 2017 and has demonstrated impressive initiative and leadership skills over the past two years. During that time, she spearheaded efforts to roll out new programs in math and Social-Emotional Learning that are being utilized in the School today.

As Lewis stated, “Honoring the history, traditions and values of the school while bringing in new ideas and creating change in my own classrooms has been the cornerstone of my time at The Long Ridge School....Together we will guarantee that LRS remains an extraordinary school — a place where our students have the time and space to grow into the people that they want to be, in an environment that allows them to know and appreciate themselves and others, and where learning is truly an active and joyful experience.”
