Why River City Scholars?

Founded on academic excellence, moral focus, parental partnership, and student responsibility, River City Scholars is a school like no other – one that can lead to a lifetime of success. We set high standards, make expectations clear, and provide a safe and emotionally secure learning environment. In addition, we focus on real-world skills, problem solving, and how to be a good citizen. Our exceptional teachers meet students at their ability level and challenge them to go beyond. Our students also draft a social contract that reinforces their commitment to their school, their teacher, and each other.

"I am beyond satisfied and impressed with every aspect of this school! The staff is amazing, and I always feel welcomed and able to be involved in my son’s education and learning experience!" - River City Scholars Parent
Top Reasons Parents Send Their Children To Our School: *
1 The curriculum provides moral focus as well as academics.
2 Teachers are great at communicating with parents.
3 Teachers truly care about their students.
* Based on actual 2013 surveys administered to parents of kids who were returning to River City Scholars
