  • Since 1991 River Valley School has been providing a quality private independent study program for a wide variety of students in grades 7-12.
  • The use of the exclusive "Assignment Tracking System", which gives details of weekly assignments and tests for an entire quarter, keeps everyone - student - parent - teachers - on the same page.
  • In addition, the weekly homework instruction appointments with BOTH parent and student encourage students to do their best and keep parents informed and empowered to follow-up at home.
  • Many of our families tried "free programs" that did not work for their students.
  • This year, despite economic setbacks, 100% of last year's students re-enrolled because they are so pleased with their student's progress at River Valley.

My 9th grade granddaughter has always attended private school. I am amazed and grateful for the structured curriculum she is receiving at River Valley High School that ensures each subject is completely understood. Many times she has expressed her appreciation for the opportunity to completely understand each subject. The in-dept personal 1-on-1 interest and attention she receives at each class, fosters self-esteem.
