River Rock School is a progressive, independent, state-recognized day school for children ages 5-14 in Montpelier, Vermont. We offer hand-crafted education in a multi-aged setting, creating a caring learning environment based on respect for each individual.

Our low student/teacher ratio lets students learn in a style and pace that is best for them. Our individualized curriculum is built from the emerging interests of each and every student, addressing essential academic components as they naturally arise through projects and thematic exploration.

At River Rock we educate and foster the growth of all aspects of being human — intellectual, emotional, social, physical, spiritual, and creative.
