Our name is inspired by the many majestic oaks surrounding our school. Oak trees symbolize longevity, humble beginnings, patience, faith, power, endurance, and strength. It is for this reason that makes the story of River Oak Academy and its image of the children and the approach to their learning different. The heart of River Oak Academy is its respect for the child and belief that all children are born to be great thinkers. Creative growth is encouraged by designing an environment that allows each child to contribute in his or her unique way. Children, parents, teachers, and the environment form a complete circle.
“The strongest oak of the forest is not the one that is protected from the storm and hidden from the sun. It’s the one that stands in the open where it is compelled to struggle for existence against the winds and rains and the scorching sun.” Napoleon Hill
