About Our School
River Eves opened its doors in August of 1996.
Family, community, and commitment are more than just words at River Eves Elementary. They are a way of life that we put into practice every day. Working collaboratively with parents and community members, teachers nurture and promote self-worth and respect for all learners. River Eves typifies a true neighborhood school surrounded by a supportive residential community. We are exceptionally proud of our diverse student demographics and embrace the fact that we have students from a variety of backgrounds, cultures, races, and walks-of-life! We pride ourselves on being holistically minded by emphasizing and providing a rigorous curriculum, instructional technology, and exposure to the fine arts.
River Eves is a STEM school where scientific and mathematical inquiry, critical-thinking, collaboration, and problem-solving are embedded within all learning environments. Students have consistent access to our STEM and Aquaponics Labs via the special’s rotation. The Aquaponics Lab was established through our River Eves Education Foundation (REEF), and students will visit the lab at least once each quarter. The STEM Lab is where students gain consistent exposure to the Engineering Design Model (EDM) that drives the scientific thinking process for students.
River Eves is also recognized as a Georgia PBIS School, in addition to being a certified AVID school. To learn more about PBIS and AVID, please access the portions of the website that provide descriptive explanations about these frameworks.
The school community comes together regularly for family events, book fairs, talent shows, student productions/concerts, field day activities, as well as a multitude of other events and gatherings.
Parent volunteers are welcome to support the school through a streamlined district vetting process that can be accomplished electronically by accessing a link that is provided by Fulton County Schools.
