PARENT OF A KINDERGARDEN, 4TH GRADER AND 6TH GRADER
My child loves to go to school, is excited about learning and feels safe to learn in the community at Running River. The emphasis is on true, deep learning rather than teaching to and testing to the standards. Public school dulled my child and she was never left to wonder or allowed to be truly creative. Intrigue, creativity, individuality and wonder are encouraged at Running River. The mixed aged classes instill confidence and allow a chance for the children to mentor their peers. Educating the whole child is of great emphasis at RR: nutritious lunches and snacks, quiet/reflective time built into the day, sewing, cooking, theater, dance, enjoying nature during weekly hikes and daily outside time are some examples. The parent forums offered at Running River are great opportunities for parents to share ideas.
