Rio Terrace School Philosophy
At École Rio Terrace Schule our mission is to enhance personal strengths and to celebrate diversity.
École Rio Terrace Schule encourages and empowers each student to be confident, creative and a responsible leader of the 21 century.
Every child is a unique individual and must be treated with respect. The purpose of education is to produce socially responsible citizens who strive for excellence. Students will be able to problem solve, locate and utilize information, appreciate the arts and physical health and develop acceptable character values. Rio Terrace is using Leader In Me(based on Steven Covey’s Seven Habits of Highly Effective People) as a framework to empower our students and give them leadership opportunities.
Innovative and dynamic teaching is expected and teachers are encouraged to continually grow. They know the curriculum, utilize multiple teaching strategies and resources, listen to and question students, allow individual and group work, integrate technology and hands-on activities and have good relationships with students, parents and colleagues. As a professional learning community, teachers collaborate with other professionals within and outside the school to improve their practice. We strive to maintain a safe and healthy learning environment.
We expect and encourage the role and responsibility of parents as partners in their child’s education. The support of our parents is essential to helping our students be successful!
“Children are likely to live up to what you believe of them.” – Ladybird Johnson
