Safe and Respectful Learning Environment
Montessori education, at its core, is centered upon the development of the physical, social, emotional and health needs of each student. Holistic education is practiced in every classroom every day, creating an inherently safe and respectful classroom and school environment.
Beyond our Peace Education Curriculum and Montessori focus on Grace and Courtesy, we employ a full-time licensed School Nurse to attend to the physical and health needs of all school members; a full-time licensed School Counselor to provide additional support for the social and emotional needs of all students; and a part-time School Psychologist to provide another layer of social/emotional support.
In our 2018 Parent Survey, 94% of respondents agreed that their children were in a safe school environment at River Valley.
