The River School’s Program Offering

The River School's Preschool Program and corresponding age guidelines are thoughtfully designed to optimize children's development throughout their toddler years (18 months - 3 years). If you are interested in a program you don't see listed for a particular age, please contact Megan Campbell at or 202.380.9206 to discuss options.

River's Elementary Program begins with Kindergarten (for those who are 5 years old by September 1) and ends in Grade 3. For our new Upper Elementary Program (Grades 4-5) we are accepting applications for the 2024-2025 School Year for both grades.


The River School does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin, gender, or religion in the administration of its educational policies, admission policies, scholarship programs and other school administered programs.
