Welcome to The River School!

I am thrilled tMagnus_Courtney_110501hat you are interested in learning more about The River School!

I believe that as you tour the website, visit classes and speak with other parents, you will be very impressed with the quality of our innovative, child-centered program. Our exceptional program features the smallest class size and most highly-educated faculty in the region.

We are a passionate about educating young children. We regularly refer to our Pillars – those aspects of our school that are most important to our program – including Language and Literacy, Arts and Sciences, Thematic Curriculum and Social and Emotional Learning.

As you get to know The River School, you will see how important these Pillars are and how your children’s education will be molded and shaped by these core values.

Please let me know when you are ready to schedule your open house and personal tour to see first-hand what happens inside our walls.

I look forward to getting to know you.

Best regards,

Director of Admission
