If your child is age-eligible for Transitional Kindergarten at RVC, his or her application will be drawn with the Kindergarten applications in the lottery. TK students will be placed in Kindergarten/1st grade classrooms, but they will follow a modified curriculum that is age- and developmentally-appropriate.
With a foundation of progressive student-driven learning, social-emotional development, academic rigor, and inspiring, fun project-based education, Ross Valley Charter makes learning come alive for students. Our immersive, hands-on approach creates lifelong learners who act on their confidence, both inside and out of the classroom.
Multi-age, project-based education has a natural emphasis on collaboration and teamwork, and helps create an environment of collaboration, mutual respect, and kindness. The projects that the students undertake require real applications of Common Core lessons, and result in performances, presentations, exhibitions, and academic reports that the students take great pride in sharing.
