Subject Overview

At River Tech each child learns at their own pace. 


Each student enrolls in four "tracks":
(1) Core-track
(2) Technology-track

(3) Performing Arts-track and
(4) Life-track.

We also have P.E., field trips, etc.

A student begins at a certain level of competency 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.
