After reviewing more than one hundred name suggestions from the public, the School Board selected Hamilton Ridge Elementary as the name of the new elementary school that will be built in Savage. The Board chose the name due to its historical significance. Prior to the name "Savage," the area was known as "Hamilton."
The Board has also chosen to name the school fields William G. Pearson, Jr. Athletic Fields in honor of the previous owner of Prior Lake Aggregates who passed away in August, 2017.
