Welcome to

Riverbend Community School

At Riverbend we believe school should be an extraordinary experience for children. Students who are below, on, or above grade-level have the opportunity to work and thrive in a self-paced learning environment that can meet their academic, social, and emotional needs. Welcome to our modern classroom where our blended instruction and self-paced structure allow for mastery of all content areas. This is an exciting place to learn.

Our Approach

It's becoming abundantly clear, the traditional classroom model does not work for many children. That includes children struggling to learn, "average" learners who just aren't engaged with the content and above-grade-level students who feel dissatisfied and bored. We offer a robust academic program that uses the B.C. Curriculum combined with a specialized focus on literacy deeply rooted in the Science of Reading.

We use a modern classroom model that includes blended instruction, a self-paced structure and mastery-based grading. Using a self-paced, blended learning approach allows children to do and complete their work with TRUE agency. It allows them to go deeper in their understanding, provides meaningful engagement with the content, and they must show mastery before moving forward. Additionally, our model allows for relationship building that is just not possible in the traditional classroom model. Blended learning give us the ability to give every student what they need to be able to move independently through their learning which then allows the teacher to provide differentiated, student-driven support to each child that needs it. It's absolutely life-changing.

 Our focus on early years allows us to ensure our youngest learners are becoming strong readers and writers. Our small class size, passionate teachers, and blended learning approach combined with a focus on each child's wellness makes for a transformative school experience that will last them a lifetime.
