Riverside Elementary School’s Vision
Riverside Elementary School’s vision is to be a premier, world-class elementary school in which every student acquires an excellent education. Our school will be a welcoming center organized around high-quality teaching and learning.
Our vision is guided by a set of Beliefs that serve as the foundation for all our efforts.
Foremost, we believe that…
Our purpose is to develop the potential of each student and ensure that all graduates become productive members of their community, able to adapt to a diverse, ever-changing world.
We also believe that…
We have the obligation to challenge every student to meet higher academic standards than his/her current level.
In order to accomplish this, we believe that…
Our students deserve an exceptional and passionate staff, who shares our core values. Our core values are stated as expectations for staff members:
- We put service to students above all else.
- We take responsibility for the success of all students.
- We care passionately about our work with children.
- We build strong positive relationships with students, staff, parents, and community.
- We model and promote civility and integrity.
We must also provide support for continuous improvement for students and staff.
Our students’ learning opportunities are enhanced when multiple approaches for learning are provided and positive relationships are formed.
All who share our schools deserve a safe, respectful and nurturing environment.
Finally, acknowledging that we all have a role in reaching our vision, we believe that…
Partnerships among family, community and school are imperative to students’ social and academic success.
