River School

Welcome to River School

From its pioneering inception in 1994, River School is Napa’s first charter school, and is further considered a “California Founding Charter” being one of the first hundred formed in the state. The academic curriculum at River School is rigorous, producing API scores well above 800 by its small but spirited body. The implicit curriculum teaches self-reliance, leadership, and civic/global compassion to prepare students for their 21st century workplace.


The Smarter Balanced Practice Tests, including scoring guides, are now available for grades 3 through 8 and grade 11 in English-language arts (ELA) and mathematics. The Practice Tests provide a preview of the Smarter Balanced assessments, but do not reflect the full range of content that students may encounter on the actual assessments.
