Juniper Ridge Intermediate School

Juniper Ridge is a Grade 5 - 8 Intermediate school located on the Northeast Avalon in Torbay, NL. Nestled at the foot of the Torbay ridge among a small forest of junipers, we service the communities of Torbay, Flatrock, Pouch Cove and Bauline.

Our approximately 720 students are very creative and energetic. They are taught by a staff of 64 teachers and support personnel who love working with this group of students. We are a very active school with many activities and events taking place throughout the year. You can try to keep up with everything we are doing by following our Twitter feed @JuniperRidgeNL


School Screening Questionnaire

If your child or if a staff member has answered “Yes” to any of the above questions in the pre-screening questionnaire, please DO NOT enter the school at this time.

If your child or if a staff member has answered “No” to all the above questions, your child or the staff member may attend school.

If your child is absent, please email the school at juniperridgeint@nlesd.ca so that attendance can be kept up to date.

This year, due to COVID-19 restrictions, we hosted a virtual Remembrance Day Ceremony for the students at Juniper Ridge Intermediate. With assistance from a committee headed by Ms. Deanne Coady, students were able to take the time to remember our veterans and to observe some time to reflect on their sacrifices which were made for our freedoms.

Many thanks to the students, teachers and community members who participated in our virtual event to make it a success and a proper memorial to our veterans.
