Founded as a Progressive, ungraded elementary school in 1972, Riley recognizes each child’s unique learning style. 


Our Mission

Our individualized curriculum challenges children to express themselves and develop their own intellectual and creative capabilities through performance, questioning and by discovery.

We foster a sense of responsibility towards our natural world, our community, and each other. We  value cooperation over self, and honor the balanced development of social, emotional and physical with academic  growth.

At Riley we trust in children as learners. We value and respect the uniqueness of the individual. We cherish and protect childhood.

My daughter attended this amazing school. I am positive she would not be the same confident and caring young girl if she had gone anywhere else.
