Our Kindergartners can be found making life-size posters of themselves, as they identify and place the organs and systems of the anatomy within their own human body. A play written, cast, costume designed, and performed by ambitious first graders is the norm at The Riviera Ridge School. Guests of The Riviera Ridge School would also see a poetry assembly of 2nd graders gathered in our historic Tea House as our poets share their unique and inspired works. 3rd grade visitors would observe a social club discussion revolving around empathy, respect for differences in beliefs and peaceful conflict resolution.
Innovation and design empower fourth graders to share about building, programming, and driving their robots across campus or launching their carefully crafted rockets into the sky. Observations of fifth graders conducting a math investigation using mile markers, distance, and layouts of a road race would not be uncommon nor would seeing small groups of students recording a conversation in Spanish against the backdrop of our green screen.
When The Riviera Ridge School sets out to explore the world, exciting field trips to local cultural and historical sites such as symphony concerts, art and natural history museums, the Presidio and Casa de la Guerra, the botanic gardens, the Santa Barbara Mission, the UCSB Chemistry Lab and the Reagan Library are just a few of the stops. See our signature programs for more information about overnight trips beginning in 4th grade to the Santa Barbara Zoo, and culminating in 5th grade with Astro Camp, an exciting science camp that explores the mysteries of our universe. Anything is possible at The Riviera Ridge School!
