About Riverside

RES offers a newer facility built in 2006.  All classrooms have interactive whiteboards and document cameras which assist student learning and engagement.  In addition, students benefit from two computer labs.  Special area programs include reinforcement in math through art, music, and physical education.  Library and technology are also offered.  Student extra-curricular activities include sports, fine arts, and academics.  RES staff collaborates weekly to focus instruction on student needs and core curriculum.  A positive behavior support system is used to encourage good student behavior.  At RES, TEAM work is encouraged and parents and community members are viewed as valued partners in educating children.
