Welcome to Ridgeway Elementary School!
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.
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.
John C. Ridgeway Elementary School opened in 1923. John C. Ridgeway was the first Boone County soldier to die in World War I.
