Life at The River School

Co-Teaching & Personalized Education

Our co-teaching model pairs a master’s level educator with a speech-language pathologist in each classroom, a unique and effective combination for cementing strong language, literacy and social skills.

Active Learning

Children engage in active learning; they work collaboratively in groups, solve problems, make mistakes and learn from them, and develop the confidence to take risks, share ideas and speak up.

A Community of Learners

Relationships between children and faculty are strengthened by collaboration among faculty, administrators and families.

Progressive Education

By expanding children’s opportunities for social, physical and creative development we enhance their personal and academic success.
