Mission - Vision - Purpose

The River School has as its vision the student as a self-actualized, independent learner. This means that we want our students to have a strong sense of self – self-motivated, self-disciplined, self-reliant – who take responsibility for their lives, instead of blaming others, making excuses, or justifying self; and who contribute to their families, communities, and planet.

We organize our school so that our students display qualities of:

  • Responsibility
  • Respect
  • Responsiveness
  • Resourcefulness

the four R’s of our implicit curriculum. It is the responsibility of every public school to educate citizens who are conscious, responsible human beings. Thus, in addition to our explicit curriculum teaching the core subjects, our implicit curriculum focuses on developing the character habits of conscious, responsible citizens, necessary to a healthy democracy.

Our purpose is:

To educate sixth, seventh, and eighth grade students to be responsible, respectful self-motivated learners who make positive contributions to their communities. We will accomplish this with the collaboration of teachers, parents and students who provide a nurturing learning environment that emphasizes academic competence, creative expression, and personal and social responsibility and models the values we want our students to learn.
