Three of my kids have been at River and their unique talents are nurtured in a way that's almost impossible at a conventional school. With 5 years in existence, River ...  Read more

I love this school. I love that my daughter loves going to school every day. I love that she's sad when she's sick. I love that it's located next to the river, so that they go for walks in the wetlands and find fun things like owl pellets. I love that it teaches my daughter to think about the universe ...  Read more

This school is the real deal. A lot of other schools in town will tell you they are child-centered and address individual learning styles and that they have zero tolerance policies in place to combat bullying.

We have been thrilled with River since we moved our daughter there last year as a 4th grader. She is truly thriving and loves learning again. This is the hidden gem of Petaluma, from the teachers to the principal to the families.

This is such a great school. The kids are lovely and so are the guides and assistants. I completely recommend this school.

Our child started River this fall. It has been a seamless transition from the private Montessori kindergarten he attended last year. He genuinely enjoys going to school and appears to thrive on the collaborative nature of the Montessori classroom. From what I have observed, the guides and assistants ...  Read more

We've been at River from its inception. What a wonderful, world based, compassionate and creative environment for learning it is. We came from Montessori, so we were looking for Montessori and boy! did we find it. Our children simply thrive at the school. My husband and I are very involved parents and ...  Read more
