Our Commitment to Learning

District Vision

We at the Glendale-River Hills School District believe that education is a partnership of home, school and community to prepare our young people to assume their roles as productive citizens, community members, parents and employees. Not only are we able to boast a staff and administration that continues to work diligently to provide a top notch educational program for students, but we are very fortunate to have active parent groups and community volunteers who tirelessly contribute their time and resources to enhance our programs. A supportive community of administrators, staff and parents work together to help students achieve academic excellence.
