An academically challenging school with an emphasis on community and wellness that leaves a positive lasting impact.
We are a free, public, kindergarten to 5th grade charter school serving the students from the Winona, Houston, and La Crescent Minnesota school districts. The school also provides fee-based preschool, after school and summer childcare programs. Located on a six acre site near the village of Ridgeway in beautiful Pleasant Hill Township, the school began serving students in 2001.
Come and see what a community can build!
Makerspace and STEM activities provide hands-on, inquiry-based learning experiences.
6 acres of school grounds and adjacent hiking trails give Ridgeway students space for outdoor learning.
Small class sizes allow Ridgeway teachers to provide differentiated instruction to our students.
To be a growing school
that is full of inquisitive learners practicing healthy living habits and becoming engaged community members.
