Montessori : Program offered for 1st  thru 8th grade students

Montessori education supports children’s natural development and encourages them to develop their creativity, think critically, solve problems and manage their own time. Montessori features mixed-age classrooms, allows students to make individual choices about their research and work, and gives them time for uninterrupted concentration. Montessori students enjoy their learning, so they can better remember what they learn.

Project Lead the Way : Program offered for Kindergarten thru 8th grade students

River Ridge offers a school-wide choice option that gives elementary and middle school students early experiences in the exciting world of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).

River Ridge students not enrolled in Montessori classrooms will participate in our focused STEM programs: Project Lead the Way Launch in grades K-5, leading directly into Gateway to Technology in middle school and later to Project Lead the Way in high school. This hands-on, project-based STEM curriculum emphasizes critical thinking and problem solving. Students use structured approaches, like the engineering design process. They apply STEM knowledge and skills, learning that it is OK to take risks and make mistakes on the road to success.
