Ridgeway (Junior) High School is the joint middle and high school that the central characters in iCarly attend. Miss Briggs and Mr. Howard are two of the teachers that work at Ridgeway. Most of the teachers who teach the iCarly trio only make a single appearance, such as in iGot Detention (Freddie and Gibby's teacher, Carly's teacher), iHave a Lovesick Teacher (Miss Ackerman, the iCarly trio's history teacher). In iWant a World Record, one of the substitute teachers was named Mr. Buttburn. Ridgeway is a combined middle and high school, since Carly and her friends have been attending since they were thirteen. The school may also be a grade school, since there were little kids taking pictures of Freddie in iKiss.

  • This school, as well as the Ridgeway Detention Center in Zoey 101, are named after a school in Memphis, Tennessee (the shows' creator's hometown). The colors of Ridgeway High School in Memphis are blue and orange, and appear to be the same on iCarly. The show's creator, Dan Schneider, attended White Station High, the real Ridgeway's rival. This may explain why, on Zoey 101, he named the detention center as such.
  • The school started to appear less from the fourth season on, although it returned in the first scene of the series finale episode iGoodbye. Its last appearence in a regular length episode was in iOpen a Restaurant.
