River Ridge Elementary School

River Ridge Elementary School

Overview

RIVER RIDGE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL reinforces Leander ISD’s unique Learning Model by arranging students in each grade level in small neighborhoods. The neighborhood common space extends every classroom by providing a shared ‘science nook’, project storage, computer workstations, story time area, as well as enough space for several classrooms to group together. When in use, the neighborhoods come alive with creative energy, exploration and spontaneous collaborative learning opportunities for students, and flexible planning alternatives for teachers.
