River Oaks Elementary serves approximately 700 culturally and economically diverse students in the Houston Independent School District. Our students consist of those residing in the HISD attendance zone for River Oaks as well as those students across the city that apply and are accepted into our Vanguard Program for the gifted and talented. Through our school-wide International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme, we develop inquiring, knowledgeable, and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.
River Oaks Elementary School develops extraordinary learners through a program of differentiated, rigorous inquiry so that they may innovate and collaborate in a global society. The International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme provides our framework for the development of internationally-minded learners who embody the ten attributes of the IB learner profile…inquirers, knowledgeable, thinkers, communicators, principled, open-minded, caring, risk-takers, balanced, and reflective.
Our Core Beliefs
All learners have the right to develop their gifts and talents. All learners benefit from project-based learning that fosters creativity and innovation. All learners deserve enrichment opportunities that stimulate intellectual, physical, and creative growth. All stakeholders (learners, staff, parents, and community members) play a vital role in the success of our school and thrive in a culture of mutual respect.
