Before Ridgway School was built, school was held at the Binder Blacksmith Shop but parents were unhappy with not having a real school building. Soon, a school was built in 1936 and 1937, with the cost adding up to $10,000. It is now located on Highway 62 and Amelia and is called The Old School House.

The Ridgway Elementary School at 1115 W. Clinton St. was built in 1973. Elementary school classes and the District office are located at the Ridgway Elementary School.

The Ridgway Secondary School at 1200 Green St. was built in 2005-2006. High school and middle school classes started in September 2006 at the Ridgway Secondary School.
