Aspire to Inspire

At Ridgway Secondary School we have a saying, "Aspire to Inspire." Whether a student is an incoming sixth grader or a graduating senior, we keep this saying close to heart. After all, RSS is the last step before a student becomes a citizen of the world. Yet, to inspire the youth of the 21st Century it is necessary to engage students in a multitude of activities. Some of the highlights students experience each year include:

  • A senior rafting trip with Outward Bound
  • A junior cultural experience in Santa Fe, New Mexico
  • Backpacking trip down Dominguez Canyon
  • Service learning with the community of Ridgway
  • Documentary filmmaking with Mountainfilm in Telluride
  • 6-8 Learn to ski program through Telski
  • Science field trips to an anatomy lab
  • College preparation courses that can culminate in 40 earned college hours
  • 8th Grade float down the Colorado River
  • Ice climbing in Ouray, Colorado
  • And many more...

Without a doubt, a student at RSS will leave our school inspired to make a difference!
