Inclusive by Design

At River Valley School, we are inclusive by design. Our school community is made up of passionate and engaged students, teachers, families and staff, bound by a belief that independent school education should be inclusive and accessible to students from all walks of life. In fact, inclusivity is what sets us apart. Unlike most independent schools in Calgary, academic testing is not required as part of the admissions process, therefore our student population represents a wide variety of backgrounds, talents, and abilities.

We are not a one-size-fits-all school. We are focused on the individual needs of our students. How we teach them is determined by who they are, how they learn, and what engages them. Our focus is the individual child and understanding how they navigate learning, absorb information, see the world, their environment, their peers, and themselves.

Personalization of the learning experience ensures each child is provided with what they need to achieve greatness.
