Tracks

At River Tech each child learns at their own pace. 

 

Each student enrolls in five "tracks"*:
(1) Math-track
(2) Composition-track
(3)
Tech-track
(4) Life-track, and
(5) Arts-track.

We also have P.E., field trips, etc.
We also offer an Extracurricular program.

*Kindergarten does not use tracks, only the school does. Read about Kindergarten here.

Each track has four levels of competency.

 

A student begins at a level and proceeds to the next level when he has mastered the level he is at. This competency based method replaces artificial "grades" and allows each student to learn at their own pace.

 

If a student excels at a subject, he can move faster, and if he finds a subject harder he can move slower.  A child can be at different levels in different tracks.
