James River students, parents, staff and community members share in the mission of providing a safe environment in which all children can develop academically, socially, physically, and emotionally in order to become independent thinkers, lifelong learners, and responsible citizens prepared to be active and compassionate participants in society.


We envision a school that encourages all students to achieve their highest potential by supporting the development of knowledgeable and compassionate young people who help to create a more peaceful world through empathy, intercultural understanding, and respect.

Our Beliefs

We Believe:

  • All students are entitled to research-based and developmentally appropriate instruction that challenges and engages them in their own search for knowledge and understanding.
  • The love of learning fosters creativity and higher-level thinking skills in all students.
  • Learners benefit from an understanding and appreciation of other cultures.
  • James River is a safe place, a caring place, and a learning place in which all learners can flourish.
