Dear River Vale Community,

Welcome to the River Vale Public Schools! Our website is the central hub of information where you will find useful links including access to individual school websites, up-to-date district information as well as updates regarding our bond referendum projects. Don’t forget to check our “Go Green” link which houses digital flyers regarding a variety of events. Thank you for visiting our District website. 

Of utmost importance is the education that we provide our students and is the cornerstone of the River Vale community. We strive to provide students with a differentiated learning environment. We educate with intention and purpose by focusing on student’s strengths, needs, and interests. Our teachers infuse a workshop approach to curriculum to foster student creativity, critical thinking skills, and collaboration. Classroom lessons are designed to foster students’ problem-solving skills through experiential, project-based learning. Students have opportunities to showcase their skills in a variety of meaningful ways.

Our students are served by a phenomenal staff of caring and highly-qualified professionals. Additionally, our students are provided with personal digital devices to provide a blended learning classroom environment. The blended learning approach aims to utilize technology to enhance learning when appropriate. Everything we do is focused on nurturing the success of our students.

As you can tell, we are proud of the students, staff, and families that call River Vale home. We believe strong schools and strong communities go hand in hand. In River Vale, we share a common goal of high-quality education and look forward to the learning journey together as we continually seek to prepare our students for the future.
