Welcome to Ridgeway Elementary!


Ridgeway Elementary School is part of the Dodgeville School District.  We are a Pre-K through 5th grade school with about 190 students located just 7 miles east of Dodgeville.  Ridgeway Elementary School is a tremendous small school with fantastic children and an amazing staff!

We have an afternoon Early Learning Program which helps prepare children for the following year of Kindergarten.  Additionally, Ridgeway is the 5th Grade center for the Dodgeville School District.  We have four sections of 5th Grade in our special condolike unit.

The Dodgeville School District has an Early Release Wednesday each week that allows staff to work on professional development activities.  RES has also been fortunate enough to have strong community and parental support.  They have helped us to provide a variety of opportunities for our students including an annual trip to the Overture Center in Madison, a theater experience with the traveling troop, Prairie Fire Theater, Desserts with Dads, Munchies with Mom, and many more.

At Ridgeway academic excellence and 21st Century skills are an absolute priority.  However, children will only reach unparalleled levels of achievement when we first focus on connecting and caring.
