Welcome to Ridgeway Elementary!
Ridgeway Elementary School is one of two elementary schools in the Dodgeville School District. We are an Early Learner, ELP through 5th grade school with about 70 students located just 7 miles east of Dodgeville.
The new school year brings many changes to our school. We will be combining our students into a multi-age learning environment consisting of an ELP-Kindergarten, 1-3, and 4-5 grade classrooms. While this arrangement is unique and different from what we’ve done previously, the teachers are enthusiastic about this exciting opportunity to work with the students on personalized learning plans and thematic units that will join classes together for these learning experiences.
Along with the multi-age classrooms, we’ve created two rooms for more specific experiences. These rooms are the science and thematic adventure rooms. Science experiments, dramatic plays, and large group projects will happen in these two areas. Additionally, technology opportunities will be offered in both computer lab areas.
At Ridgeway Elementary School academic excellence, self-directed learning, and the development of 21st Century skills are a priority for us. The staff at RES believe that children can achieve more when we focus on providing a learner-directed environment through a more personalized lens. Students will experience a rigorous learning environment but will have a voice and a choice in how they show what they’ve learned.
We invite families to join with us as we explore personalized learning and thematic units in this exciting opportunity for our elementary children. If you’d like to volunteer please contact your child’s teacher or Mrs. Goetzke, Ridgeway Elementary School Principal.
