People comment on the welcoming, affectionate and respectful atmosphere at River Valley School. This caring environment puts students at ease and opens them up to do their best work. Children feel safe and loved. They experience a deep sense of belonging, and know that they are the reason the rest of us are here. As parents you are always welcome. There are no barriers to keep you away from interacting with your child, their teachers, or with me.
Of course academic success is essential but social and character development are just as important. That is why we focus a great deal of attention on the overall well-being of each student. At River Valley School each child will experience excellence.
We are a nimble school with an interest in promising practices in the areas of education, innovation and health & wellness. In addition to core curriculum, students enjoy exceptional instruction in Music, Art, Drama, Physical Education, French, Library and Digital Literacies including coding, app creation and data analysis.
There is also school-wide use of Seesaw for parent, child & teacher communications demonstrating “in the moment” learning. Leadership opportunities abound with an elected Student Government, student created clubs & intramural coaching. All of our classes have a low pupil teacher ratio, maximizing instructional time and the personalization of learning.
With our Before and After School programs, River Valley offers a safe, caring environment for your child from 7am to 6pm Mondays through Fridays year-round.
Today’s students are tomorrow’s leaders, innovators, healers, educators, visionaries, artists, entrepreneurs, and environmental stewards. Let’s work together to prepare your child for success in our rapidly changing world.
