Welcome to
River Valley School

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.

We are a small and nimble school with an interest in promising practices in the areas of education, technology and health & wellness.

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.

In addition to Science, Social Studies, English and Math, students enjoy quality programs in Music, Art, Health, Drama, Physical Education, French and Library.

Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) are integrated within the curriculum, including is a 1:1 iPad program in Grades 4- 6.

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.

Our unique “Friday Specials” were created to provide further enrichment for our students. Programming includes courses like Cooking, Outdoor Education, Dance, Coding, Movie making, Athletics, Photography and Cultural Studies, to name a few.

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.
