Our School Philosophy

WE BELIEVE that the community must recognize, support, and provide the opportunity, through its school system, to develop the widely divergent skills and interests of its children.

WE BELIEVE that all professional staff members must share with parents the responsibility of providing for the students’ physical,academic, and emotional-social needs as well as fostering the beliefs that one's formal schooling is merely the beginning of one's quest for knowledge.

WE BELIEVE that the Union School Board and all professional staff members must create and accept the responsibility for establishing a school climate that stimulates the growth and creativity of each child.


Our School Vision

WE ENVISION a school in which all educators,parents, students, and shareholders form a mutually respectful and supportive partnership for the purpose of creating an environment where confident, self-directed individuals strive to maintain high standards in a challenging and supportive learning environment.


Our School Mission

Dos Rios seeks to provide a safe, productive environment, which develops life-long learners who believe in themselves and others, set ambitious goals, demonstrate good character,and continually celebrate diversity.


Our Beliefs

We Believe That:

  • All children deserve a quality education in which individual needs are met, exceeded, and supported.
  • The six pillars of good character form a foundation from which children can achieve academic and personal success.
  • We are helping our children learn the academic and social skills that will enable them to become successful adults.
  • Children learn best in a safe, caring environment, one that values diversity, collaboration, and risk-taking.
  • Parents and community participation in our school is vital to the success of our children.
  • Children are more than test scores.
  • Excellence is not a skill; it is an attitude! Maintaining high expectations for all children leads to higher achievement.
