Inquiry-Based Learning in Action

Ross Valley Charter is inquiry-based, multi-age education in action. Students are empowered to explore their interests, follow leads, and work together to solve problems and answer questions. Inquiry-based learning helps students accumulate knowledge as they progress from grade to grade. Inquiry in education is about a greater understanding of the world in which children live, learn, communicate, and work.  Find out what RVC Classrooms are like by clicking here.
