    Our school colors are blue and gold.

     Southgate-Rippetoe is an ethnically diverse school with a commitment to providing an educational opportunity for our entire community. Our school program is focused on literacy, mathematics and oral/written language development. We base our teaching philosophy at Southgate-Rippetoe on the tenants of a teaching model entitled Great Expectations. We believe that when a climate of mutual respect is created between teachers and students that all students can learn no matter what labels are placed upon them. Building student self-esteem is the key to helping children believe that they are capable of learning and motivating them to try. We strive to provide a secure and committed learning environment to maximize student learning and instill a love for life-long learning
