Welcome to Crocker/Riverside!
The Crocker/Riverside Staff extends a warm welcome to all the students and their parents. Crocker/Riverside School is an excellent neighborhood school with a dedicated teaching staff, wonderful children, and involved and supportive parents.
We are committed in all our activities to provide a quality education for all our children. Our goal is to guide children to become fully participating citizens by giving them a strong academic education in a nurturing environment that recognizes diversity, promotes healthy choices and embraces community involvement.
Students receive a challenging and rigorous academic curriculum supported with enrichment activities, hands-on and real-life experiences, community resources, and active parent participation and involvement. Parent and community participation are outstanding and continue to provide vital assistance to our educational program.
In addition to instruction in the core curriculum, students are provided learning opportunities in our library, art through the Art Docent program, and creative writing experience with the Young Author Program for grades 3-6.
Our school’s PTA is very active and highly committed to supporting and improving the educational program and school environment through its involvement with the school and its many planned school and family activities.
The school provides a number of after-school programs including orchestra, foreign languages, art, chess club, choir, and a running/fitness program for the students. Before and after-school child care is provided for a fee on our campus through the Parks and Recreation’s 4th “R” program.
