The mission of the Plymouth River School Community, where children are treasured, is to foster a love of learning in an innovative, cooperative climate which empowers all students to be competent, productive, caring and responsible citizens.


Core Values


Learning is best inspired in a supportive environment where the uniqueness of each individual’s talents, abilities and learning styles is celebrated. Academic excellence is achieved through a challenging and interactive curriculum. Students are encouraged to recognize their unique talents and do their personal best and unique talents are recognized.

Collaborative problem-solving requires a flexible, inquiring, and questioning mind coupled with a respect for diversity. This is taught and modeled, leading to the development of skills that will provide a safer and more harmonious world for future generations.

Perseverance is actively valued as the means to develop the inner strength and dedication needed to sustain a purpose in the face of challenges.

Adherence to a code of moral responsibility is modeled and practiced, motivating personal responsibility for contributing to the community in ways that benefit both self and others.

Our community focuses its high expectations on the whole child through multiple modalities of learning. Social, emotional, academic and physical development are held as having equal importance in building a foundation for life-long learning.

The collaborative partnership between students, teachers, parents and administrators, is actively developed, benefiting everyone and laying the foundation for optimal student development.

Responsible digital citizenship is taught along with technology skills that support learning standards across the curriculum, contributing to effective and ethical functioning in higher education and society.

Connections with the natural world are fostered, leading to an appreciation of scientific inquiry, love of nature and a future of ecological sustainability.
