At Rio Valley Charter School, you will not find students seated in rows for several hours a day, five days a week. Instead, the school day is a bit more flexible. Rio Valley is a school that offers a different method of delivering education through homestudy and independent study while still maintaining the community environment offered by brick and mortar schools.
More than a month ago, Rio Valley officially moved into a new location in Bella Terra Plaza on Kettleman Lane just to the right of Impact Sports Center, which the school sometimes uses for its P.E. program. The school was previously located further west on Kettleman Lane in a small business complex. There the school occupied two separate suites which were separated by a mortgage company. With the new site, students will no longer have to travel between buildings in the cold and rain, said director and principal Dr. Marcie Grill.
