R School

  • At R School, we honor and respect childhood as a time of happiness, curiosity, and active, engaged learning opportunities.
  • We believe that children learn best not through facilitated, synchronized lessons or state-mandated expectations, or through standardized tests or passive consumption of content, but rather through active engagement with their environment and their community, guided by experienced teachers and mentors. R School curriculum is designed around the interests of the students and structured to maximize each student`s strengths.
  • When education is designed to best meet the needs of the students, students are effectively engaged and learn most effectively. R School creates student-centered, innovative, and hands-on educational programs that are designed to meet students where they are. We offer full-time and part-time enrollment options!
