    this is a wonderful school a person who wants to learn a good education should go here they have great teachers and a great principal. Mr.Corbett makes sure there students are having a great time. The staff also makes sure the eighth grade is having a good time on their last year at ridgway. This is a terrific amazing school and your when your student has to leave ridgway and go to high school believe me they wouldn't want to leave. I love ridgway!
