Riverside Right Fit School Within a School

Exploration, Expression, Exposition through Experience

What is Riverside Right Fit?

Riverside Right Fit School Within A School is a learning experience for students needing a nontraditional approach to gaining knowledge. Right Fit School programming is driven by student voice and will focus primarily on career paths. We know learning occurs in multiple environments - at home, at the park, in school, and in the community. Our goal is to bridge a child’s passion to learn in all areas of life. Students will guide their exploration through personal interests such as, but not limited to, engineering, drama, culinary arts, outdoor education, athletics, management, entrepreneurship, and more.

Who will attend?

There will be three multiage classrooms: one primary (grades 1-2 equivalent) and two intermediate (grades 3-5 equivalent).  Class sizes will be limited to 14 per classroom. Staff will work collaboratively with students to explore and create.  The school day will include restorative circles and community partners.

 

 

What is the referral process?

There will be a process for families and school staff to refer students to Riverside Right Fit School. Please contact your  neighborhood school office to complete referral.

Will everyone be accepted?
