Silly, scary, exciting, and often bewildering!  Do these words describe your life and that of your future or current Middle School student?  The Middle School years, more than any other stage of life, are filled with dramatic life experiences, body changes, intellectual growth, and emotional expansion.  Rivermont Collegiate recognizes that the needs of Middle School students are different from those of other students.  Explore what Rivermont Middle School is all about, the advantages of small school size, and where your child fits in at Middle School Information Night on Tuesday, March 16th from 6:00-7:30 p.m. on the Rivermont campus.

Headmaster Rick St. Laurent, Admissions Director Cindy Murray, and the Middle School Faculty will discuss academic expectations in Middle School, choices in curriculum and extra-curricular activities, and important skills students will need to thrive.  Small school environments like Rivermont help close achievement gaps between genders, encourage participation in a wide variety of extra-curricular activities, provide meaningful interaction with teachers and advisors, and prevent students from taking refuge in anonymity.  This event is open to the public and will be held on the first floor of the Historic Bettendorf Mansion on the Rivermont campus.  Parents will have the opportunity to tour Middle School classrooms and common areas, and a light supper will be served.  Learn how to go beyond surviving Middle School – thrive!

Rivermont Collegiate is located at 1821 Sunset Drive, directly off 18th Street behind K&K Hardware in Bettendorf.
