Welcome to the Ridgway School District

The Ridgway School District’s motto is “We aspire to inspire.”  Together as a team we all take responsibility for making our school district the best it can be.  We seek to connect learning to the authentic challenges of our changing world. The district’s extensive K-12 experiential outdoor education program is one of the distinct ways in which the Ridgway School District faculty work to develop the tools of collaborative teamwork, resiliency, and critical and creative thinking necessary for success as a student and as an adult.

The Ridgway School District has built a reputation for exemplary PreK-12 programs and high student academic achievement.  In most recent years they have been honored with state accolades including the Colorado John Irwin Award for Excellence, the Governor’s Award of Growth, and been Accredited with Distinction.  What sets the Ridgway School District apart is the excellence of our faculty and staff and the enthusiasm and commitment of our students, families, Board of Education, and the greater community.  We work together for continuous improvement and attention to academic rigor within a welcoming school climate that supports the social and emotional needs of all children.

It takes a hard-working, compassionate team to meet the complex challenges of education in the 21st century.  Together we forge forward toward the RSD vision to inspire our students to find purpose in their changing world.

With best wishes,

               Susan Lacy
