Our unique structure creates an active learning environment where children learn by doing, by questioning and by discovery. Small, integrated classes provide opportunities for children to express themselves and to build their self-esteem, thus helping them to develop the skills and attitudes which will guide them to become life long learners and creative, independent thinkers.
Riley's campus consists of 21 acres of peaceful and beautiful open fields, woods, and shore frontage. There are five separate buildings: Lower School and Science Building, Library, Creative Arts Building, Pottery Studio, and Children's Theater.
Riley's curriculum is designed to encompass the intellectual, creative, emotional, and physical needs of each child. The learning environment and the arrangement of the curriculum stimulates the imagination and the feelings of each child in such a way that learning emerges from the experiences involving the child's total development. Since each child is unique, individual potential and individual needs are met according to the level of intellectual, psychological, and social development.
