School Philosophy

At Rio Terrace we are committed to providing support for all students. We use innovative and adaptive teaching to foster a sense of curiosity and wonder. Our classrooms function as learning labs where students can experiment with a broad range of ideas. We strongly believe that it is important to actively build relationships with the children at the school and with the families we serve. Most importantly, we empower our students to make effective personal decisions by giving them authentic leadership opportunities whenever possible.

At Rio Terrace we use the following keystone ideas to support our students with building core curricular competencies: Responsibility; Integrity; Opportunity; Compassion; Accountability; Respect; Empathy; and Service
