"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.
