Welcome to River Day School
“Education means developing the mind, not stuffing the memory.” --Anonymous
River Day School is a K-6 elementary school in Spokane, WA. We are independent, nonprofit and non-sectarian, Our kindergarten is full-day.
We offer a progressive education that fosters children’s development as scholars and community members. With small class sizes, a mix of direct instruction and experiential learning, and a caring school community, River Day School is an educational environment in which students thrive.
River Day school actively promotes respect for diversity through our admission policy, curriculum, and educational opportunity.
With class sizes of 12-15 students per teacher, teachers have time to work with each student individually, teaching to your child's learning style.
Experienced and certified, teachers at River Day School are invested in the success of their students.
Our classrooms provide an atmosphere conducive to learning, with spaces arranged purposefully—there are areas for group work and areas for individual study, and the freedom to use the areas as needed.
Learning happens best when a connection can be made between the concept and a child's experience--providing opportunities for those connections is integral to a River Day School education. Lessons relating to a child's life, field trips and community outings all augment and highlight the classroom curriculum.
