Our Mission
River Oaks Elementary School develops extraordinary learners through a program of differentiated, rigorous inquiry so that they may innovate and collaborate in a global society.  The International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme provides our framework for the development of internationally-minded learners that embody the ten attributes of the IB learner profile…inquirers, knowledgeable, thinkers,communicators, principled, open-minded, caring, risk-takers, balanced, and reflective.
Core Beliefs

All learners have the right to develop their gifts and talents. All learners benefit from project-based learning that fosters creativity and innovation. All learners deserve enrichment opportunities that stimulate intellectual, physical, and creative growth. All stakeholders (learners, staff, parents,and community members) play a vital role in the success of our school and thrive in a culture of mutual respect.
