School Reviews

River Rock School is a wonderful, creative school and we wish we had started our child here sooner! The teachers are incredible and help each student grow as an individual and a community. The school provides so much in the areas of creativity, drama, the arts, academics and brings in other artists from the community. River Rock is not just a school, it's a second home for our child (as well as a wonderful community for all of us!)
