About Us

Ridge and Valley Charter School is public K-8 school of choice providing students an education for a hopeful sustainable future.

Our educational program and curriculum honors children as individuals and emphasizes personal excellence, hands-on experiential education, self-directed and outdoor learning, earth literacy, bioregional studies– all in the context of our 13.7 billion year-old Universe.

RVCS is a tuition-free public school that follows NJ state education standards and testng requirements within the context of our mission.

Local community members established the school to pursue innovative and personal excellence oriented teaching methods within the public school system, gaining approval of the school’s charter in 2002 and opening the school for students in the 2004-2005 academic year.

Our school encourages children to wonder, to think, to discover and to question.

They are cherished and respected and will learn to do the same with the world around them.

Ridge and Valley Charter School believes that it is possible to create a more ecologically sustainable future and that our children have a right to a planet of pure air, clean water, a vibrant natural world and a more just and equitable human community.

This vision is not only a right but a possibility. We believe it is the purpose of a democratic society to lay the foundation of such a future. The result of a Ridge and Valley Charter School education will be children who grow into adults who love the earth and who are passionate about its ability not only to survive, but to thrive. They will provide leadership that has a clear vision of the world and how to make it better.
