Welcome to Ridgeway Elementary School!
Ridgeway Mission Statement: The mission of Ridgeway IGE School is to help each student become a self-directed, self-motivated, lifelong learner, capable of meeting the challenges faced during a lifetime.
Ridgeway is a magnet school based on the concept of Individually Guided Education (I.G.E.). The Ridgeway philosophy is founded on the idea that ‘success teaches success’ and that students are unique individuals.
When a student is successful every day, this continued success builds a positive self-concept. If a student has a positive self-concept, that student will do his/her best work. If a student does his/her best work that student will be successful. Thus the system builds on itself.
John C. Ridgeway Elementary School opened in 1923. John C. Ridgeway was the first Boone County soldier to die in World War I.
