What People are Saying…

I love our school...

“I love our school so much I want to be a teacher so I never have to leave it. It has a heart that beats on its own, the most amazingly devoted and incredible teachers and a spiritual philosophy that is hard to dispute. It’s blissful!” Parent

I am thankful...

“I am more and more thankful for working in such a beautiful community. I feel supported and nourished by something that the River School offers that is not necessarily tangible but is very much alive and rich. There is a deeper level of substance and truth that hovers over the place and infuses everything. I feel touched by this and the more I work here, the more I recognise it.” Teacher
