River Eves opened its doors in August of 1996.
"Community" is more than just a word at River Eves Elementary. It is a way of life that we put into practice every day. Working collaboratively with parents and community members, teachers nurture and promote self-worth and respect for all learners. River Eves typifies a true neighborhood school surrounded by a supportive residential community. We are exceptionally proud of our diverse student demographics and embrace the fact that we have students from a variety of backgrounds, cultures, races, and walks-of-life!
Parent volunteers are welcome to support the school through a streamlined district vetting process. We pride ourselves on being holistically-minded by emphasizing and providing a rigorous curriculum, instructional technology, and exposure to the fine arts. River Eves is a state-certified STEM school where scientific and mathematical inquiry, critical-thinking, collaboration, and problem-solving are embedded within learning environments. Students and teachers also have access to our newly-established "Aquaponics Lab" which was established through our "River Eves Education Foundation" (REEF). Aquaponics instruction is accomplished through a contracted teacher where students receive additional "doses" of the scientific process via inquiry-based lessons and are also exposed to the "Engineering Design Model" (EDM), which is directly related to school-wide STEM instructional practices.
The school community gathers regularly for evening family events, book fairs, talent shows, student productions/concerts, as well as field day activities.
