Dear RiTechA School Community and Visitors,
We are so excited to be in our Fifth year of educating students at River Islands Technology Academy. We continue to grow with the community and have added twelve new classroom and twelve new teachers. We have also added a Robotics Lab and new technology in the new classrooms – Active Panel Promethean Boards. We will continue to provide ongoing professional development for our amazing teachers to ensure quality instruction for our students.
- We know of the importance of equity as a driver of, and goal for, educational opportunity and achievement. Equity is a focus at our school, with the long-term goal of ensuring ALL students have access to a high-quality education. We celebrate diversity and opportunity for ALL!
- We know that we (RiTechA Staff), along with our parents are essential to developing the future generations that will maintain our country’s status as a world leader. We take that responsibility very seriously and as a result not only focus on core academics but also on fine arts and good character.
- We also know that it is essential to have parents involved in their child’s education and we ask that you volunteer in the classroom and at special school activities; communicate in a positive manner with the teachers and administration (share your ideas and concerns); and join/participate in the RiTechA Parent Booster Club.
The educators at our school are life builders — preparing kids for their future, which in turn ensures a brighter future for all of us.
It is our shared belief that schools play a critical role as the bedrock of our civic society and in preparing students to be successful, contributing members of our local, national, and global communities. So our goal is to have fun and prepare our students for that role by having them realize that they are: “COLLEGE BOUND”.
The Theme for this year is “EDGE”!
I want to stand as close to the edge as I can without going over. Out on the edge you see all the kinds of things you can’t see from the center. – Kurt Vonnegut
All the Best to Each of You!
