Our School

About Riverside School

At Riverside School we believe that "Every Child Can Learn" and we strive to create an innovative, interactive environment providing students with a sense of belonging and security.

Principles, Values and Beliefs

We, the staff and parents of Riverside School believe:

  • every child can experience success in learning
  • every child is responsible for his/her own learning
  • our school provides students with a sense of belonging and security
  • our parents and staff work together as partners
  • our community should be actively involved in the school

Statement of Philosophy

"It's not how smart you are, but how you are smart" -- Howard Gardner

This statement underlies the philosophy of teaching and learning at Riverside School. The Riverside School Staff embraces Howard Gardner's "Theory of Multiple Intelligences". We believe that each child learns in multiple ways and belongs to a unique learning community. Our philosophy of brain-based learning recognizes that children's success in life is the result of developing the many ways of being intelligent: me smart people smart word smart art smart body smart music smart math smart nature smart

In order to help our students become self-motivated, life-long learners who are critical, creative thinkers, self-confident, caring and responsible citizens; the Riverside School Community strives to create a school where the learning environment is experiential, meaningful, flexible and academically challenging to each child.
