River Bend Elementary is a multi-track year round school located in northeast Raleigh. The school has a highly qualified cadre of teachers and support staff. The school's major goal is ensuring that all students are provided with an instructional program that will prepare them for the 21st century. Our school receives federal funds for Title 1 programs that are part of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001.  Throughout the school year, we will continue to provide you with important information about this law and your child's education.

Our Teachers

As staff members work to achieve this goal, they meet in Professional Learning Teams (PLTs) to align math, reading, science and other academic subject areas in order to provide a seamless K-5 curriculum. Staff members strive for continuous improvement daily as they work with the diverse population of students. They extend their learning through participation in Wake County staff development and other training opportunities.

You have the right to request information regarding the professional qualifications of your child's classroom teacher(s). Please contact Kenneth Jorgensen (kjorgensen@wcpss.net) for further information. View our NC School Report Card
