River Oaks Baptist School prepares its students to meet life's challenges and lead tomorrow's world through a superior educational program under girded by faith in Jesus Christ and Christian principles.
We believe that strong foundations are built upon balanced growth of the interdependent aspects of human nature -- intellectual, physical, spiritual, moral and social; principles of responsibility, diligence, and cooperation, as well as respect for diversity and the dignity of the individual; and skills in critical thinking, creative problem solving, and effective communication.
We believe that our students will reach their fullest growth in a school environment which encourages students, faculty, and staff to see themselves as uniquely created by God with special qualities and gifts for development; balances high expectations with developmentally appropriate nurturing; and works cooperatively with parents in concert with the school's mission for the benefit of the student.

School Reviews

My Will attended ROB from Age 3 through the 8th grade. The level of education was excellent preparing him for the challenges of High school. The teachers were caring and professional. ROB attracts the most qualified teachers while continuing to challenge them to advance their degrees. I highly recommend ROB!
