About Us

White River School District, where collaboration is a way of life

At White River, you will find teachers and other staff members who are dedicated, highly qualified professionals.
Several have earned National Board Certification.  With each instructional initiative, staff are given the tools they need to carry out their work in the classroom through professional development opportunities.

Our Monday late starts enable collaborative efforts to examine student work and learning via the Professional Learning Community model.  We are serious about making sure students are learning and that instruction is geared to the individual needs of our students.

White River School District has become a recognized leader in the state and nation in the application of this collaborative model.  Large groups of teachers from many other school districts have visited us to observe how we implement these strategies in an effort to meet the learning needs of our White River students.

​Mission Statement​
What's Best for Kids- The Basic ideas of "What's Best for Kids", and that everyone should be valued, drive the decision-making process throughout the district activities. These simple but powerful beliefs are the foundation of our strategic plan and our efforts to align curriculum with the current concepts of educational reform.

Our Mission- Ensure high levels of learning for all students preparing them for successes beyond high school.
