Welcome to
River Valley School

Working together to facilitate the growth of our students is critical for our collective futures. To accomplish this growth a learning environment has been created that makes students comfortable taking risks with their learning and allows them to do their best work.

Our learning community recognizes that within our walls we have tomorrow’s leaders, innovators, healers, visionaries, entrepreneurs, and environmental stewards. Our vision is to curate opportunities for learning and discovery that are as dynamic as the world around us. This is how we can best position our students for future opportunities, and best position our society for future success.

At River Valley School, we value social and character development as much as academic development. This requires our entire community working together in the best interests of our students. Parents are invited to interact with their child, their teachers, and our administration to ensure this work is happening in a collaborative, coordinated manner. Our community is welcoming and respectful, and fosters a sense of belonging.

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.

Our staff research and explore promising practices in the areas of education, innovation and health & wellness. Our mission is to be an exceptional educator that embraces the unique talents of every child. Our adaptive model of educational delivery supports different learning styles to ensure that every student is capable of achieving their personal best. 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.

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.

Come see why River Valley School would be a great choice now for your child’s future success.
