SigningDay.jpgRiverwood Students Sign on National Signing Day

Riverwood International Charter School in Sandy Springs recently had six student-athletes sign national letters of intent with the colleges of their choice on the NCAA’s early signing day.





Three teachers led Sandy Springs’ Riverwood International Charter School to bringing an award-winning outdoor garden and classroom coming to fruition. The garden won the District 3 Fulton County Citizens Commission on the Environment award on Oct. 16.The teachers involved included Patti Lawrimore, chair of the science department; Elissa Oliver, a chef and culinary arts teacher; and Isaac Seals, a science teacher and coach.



Sandy Springs students who once had to travel miles outside their local school zone to receive special education and peer support services are now the beneficiary of a thriving program at Riverwood International Charter School.

The Community Based Instruction program at Riverwood, founded when the new school opened in 2017 with oversight from Fulton County Schools, provides students with disabilities the opportunity to learn academic, community, daily-living, and career skills within the communities where they currently live, work, and shop.


The Raider Math and Writing Centers kicked off the 2019-20 school year with grand openings at Riverwood International Charter School. Unique to Fulton County and modeled after similar centers offered in collegiate settings, these two centers provide tutoring in math and writing for Riverwood's nearly 1,800 students. Each center is designed to enhance the learning experience and improve academic performance for students in grades 9-12. Combined, the centers offer nearly 70 tutors and each center plans to conduct at least 1,500 tutoring sessions this year.


Artwork created by Riverwood International Charter School juniors, Renee Alnoubani and Luna Ramirez, has been selected to appear in the 2019 Fulton County Schools Annual Comprehensive Financial Report. Each year the Fulton Schools Accounting Department requests art submissions from students in all 106 Fulton County Schools to be considered for publication in the annual report which is distributed to Fulton County employees and stakeholders. Submissions are provided by teachers and pieces are selected to represent the various districts within Fulton County Schools.
