River Oak Academy’s vision is to build meaningful relationships among children, the community, and the natural environment. We are inspired to nurture each child toward empathy, compassion, ecological consciousness, engaged inquiry, and collaboration. We learn as much from children as they learn from us.
At River Oak Academy, children interact in a rich, nurturing environment designed to stimulate their curiosity about the world and to encourage learning through inquiry, exploration, and play. Within each individual class, the daily schedule and the classroom environment are arranged to give the children opportunities to express their interests and build confidence in their natural abilities and approach to learning.
We recognize the importance of an authentic, child-centered environment which is rich in creativity and provides a wide variety of interactions with people and materials. We make every attempt to meet each child at his/her level and to identify special strengths and the need for support.
