River Oaks Elementary School develops extraordinary learners through an International Baccalaureate Years Programme of Inquiry so that children may explore and think for themselves in real-life contexts. We offer authentic learning experiences within a transdisciplinary framework. We teach conceptually and afford students agency through choice, voice and ownership. For our early learners, we view play as the primary driver of inquiry, and we recognize that children are born naturally curious.Core Beliefs
- have the right to develop their gifts and talents,
- benefit from project-based learning that fosters creativity and innovation; and
- deserve enrichment opportunities that stimulate intellectual, physical, and creative growth.
The learning community:
- plays a vital role in the success of our school;
- thrives in a culture of mutual respect; and
- embodies the ten attributes of the IB Learner Profile: inquirers, knowledgeable, thinkers, communicators, principled, open-minded, caring, risk-takers, balanced, and reflective.
