The RVIS Elementary School curriculum has been developed with a commitment to use the best educational practices from around the world. Every aspect of the curriculum has been carefully designed to be both developmentally appropriate and academically challenging; aligned with international curriculum standards for K-12 education.
In addition to providing a strong academic foundation for students, RVIS also offers a holistic, well-rounded learning experience within a safe, supportive environment. RVIS takes pride in its innovative teaching practices. Through a wide range of specialist classes and co-curricular activities, students at RVIS have the opportunity to explore the world outside of academia and develop skills essential for a successful, happy life.
At RVIS Elementary, we recognize the importance of integrating Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics (STEAM) into our students’ learning journey. Our approach to STEAM education is rooted in collaboration, creativity, and critical thinking, ensuring that our students are not only academically proficient but also poised to become innovators and problem solvers of tomorrow.
Our unique STEAM program is the product of a dynamic partnership between our innovation specialist and homeroom teachers. This collaboration ensures that STEAM education is seamlessly woven into our curriculum, providing students with learning experiences that are both meaningful and relevant. By incorporating STEAM principles across various subjects, we ensure that students develop a well-rounded understanding of how their learning connects to the real world.
For grades 4 and 5, IGNITE Day serves as a cornerstone of our STEAM initiative, offering students an array of STEAM-related electives. These electives are designed to ignite students’ passion for learning and discovery, allowing them to explore areas such as robotics, coding, environmental science, and digital arts. IGNITE Day not only enriches our students’ academic experience but also empowers them to pursue their interests and talents within the STEAM fields.
The Innovation Hub embodies the spirit of collaboration and creativity at the core of our educational approach. This vibrant space brings together teachers, students, and parents, enabling them to collaboratively bring units of study to life through hands-on projects and cutting-edge technology. Within its walls, educators work to integrate curriculum themes into engaging, real-world applications, while families actively participate in their children's learning, building projects together that not only enhance academic understanding but also foster a strong sense of community. The Innovation Hub is a testament to our commitment to innovative teaching and learning, where every day is an opportunity to inspire, explore, and create.
Through our rich curriculum and the STEAM program, RVIS students are encouraged to ask questions, experiment, and engage in hands-on learning. Our aim is to foster a sense of curiosity and innovation, equipping students with the skills necessary to navigate and contribute to an increasingly complex world. By integrating STEAM education into our elementary curriculum, we are preparing our students not just for the next stage of their educational journey, but for a lifetime of learning and discovery.
At RVIS Elementary, we are committed to providing an education that transcends traditional boundaries, offering students opportunities to grow academically, socially, and emotionally.
