    "My daughter attends kindergarten at Ridgeway. Although we felt lucky to secure a spot , I initially I wasn't sure how impressed I felt about the Ridgeway, having nothing to compare it to. Now that we're half way through her first year, I now am very happy with her curriculum especially when I hear about other elementary schools and what they're doing. My daughter has already been assessed on her abilities and moves around to different writing, reading and math groups accordingly. She's very happy and settled there and loves attending school and feels stimulated. I now realize that Ridgeway does in fact operate more like a private school than a public school. I am grateful to see my child challenged instead of having to wait for the entire class to 'catch up' before she moves forward. Thanks to all of the staff who have made it such a positive experience so far!"

    "This school is a great asset to all students. The teachers are amazing! My son had a tough transition from preschool to kindergarten. However, his teacher has been extremely helpful in keeping us posted on his daily activities, behavior and progress. She has went above and beyond for our son. I can't imagine this type of outstanding, daily communication and willingness to work with my son and us at any other school."

    "This is an IGE (Individually Guided Education) school with combined grade classrooms. We love this school for too many reasons to list but mostly because of the family involvement and community we are lucky to be a part of there."

    "Ridgeway is the best elementary school in Columbia, MO, but parents should be prepared to become involved. The culture at Ridgeway draws folks in and puts them to work making the school better. My daughters have both attended Ridgeway and I could not imagine a better elementary school experience for either."
