 About Us
River Oaks Elementary serves approximately 720 culturally and economically diverse students in the Houston Independent School District. Our students consist of those residing in the HISD attendance zone for River Oaks as well as those students across the city that apply and are accepted into our Vanguard Program for the gifted and talented. Through our school-wide International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme, we develop inquiring, knowledgeable, and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect. 


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 forthe 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.

Way to go ROE!
