Philosophy

At River Rock, our students experience a hand-crafted education:

  • A multi-aged and caring learning environment where each individual is respected.
  • An individualized curriculum made possible by our low student to teacher ratio.
  • Academic and daily art experiences that support creative thinking, collaboration, and problem solving.
  • The freedom to explore essential academic components as they naturally arise through projects and thematic exploration.
  • No homework! No tests!

River Rock students work with visiting artist-in-residence Kristen M. Watson to write, design, and produce stop motion animations. Check out their work on our YouTube channel.

River Rock students are prolific makers, and their experiential learning is rooted in the exploration of a wide variety of materials and media.
