Aspire to Inspire

At Ridgway School District 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. Here at RSS, one way we inspire the youth of the 21st Century is to engage students in a multitude of activities, both inside the classroom and outside the classroom. Through our Outdoor Experiential Learning Program our students experience a variety of instruction which include but are not limited to:

  • A senior rafting trip with Outward Bound

  • A junior backpacking trip

  • A sophomore cultural experience in Denver, Colorado

  • A freshmen summit camping trip

  • Freshmen ice-climbing expeditions

  • A 6th-8th grade biomes camping experience

  • 6th-8th grade Winter Adventure Days (AT Skiing, Nordic Skiing, & Snowshoeing)

  • 8th grade Rights of Passage at The Needles

  • Multiple service learning projects with the community of Ridgway

  • And many more...

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