The Rivergate staff is determined to provide our students with a safe physical and emotional environment where they can develop a relationship with God and acquire an education that will instill in each of them Christian values, high self-esteem, high academic achievement, and responsible behavior.
Adventist education seeks to develop a life of faith in God and respect for the dignity of all human beings; to build character akin to that of the Creator; to nurture thinkers rather than mere reflectors of others’ thoughts; to promote loving service rather than selfish ambition; to ensure maximum development of each individual’s potential; and to embrace all that is true, good, and beautiful.
Rivergate Adventist Elementary is accredited through the Northwest Association of Accredited Schools.
NAAS is one of six regional accreditation associations in the United States.
Accreditation is a means of showing confidence in a schools performance.
An education of this kind imparts far more than academic knowledge.
It fosters a balanced development of the whole person – physically, intellectually, socially, and spiritually.
Working together, homes, schools, and churches cooperate with divine agencies in preparing learners for responsible citizenship in this world and in the world to come.

Bringing my son to Rivergate was the best decision I could have made for him! He has improved in every area. His attitude has improved, he has straight A's, and he loves bible study! Ms. Smith is a fabulous teacher! I intend to keep my son at Rivergate all the way through=)

Rivergate Adventist is a christ centered school that lives what they advertise. As a parent of a second grader, I was amazed by the level of staff commitment and excellence of the instruction my son recieved while attending this year. Sharilyn Smith, the second-third grade teacher, was a godsend to my child. Anyone looking for an investment in their childs future, need look no farther. Rivergate Adventist a place where your child will be loved, instructed in academic excellence, and have fun. God Bless!!! Submitted by a parent
