Campus Mission Statement:


Riverchase Elementary, in partnership with our families and community, will develop students who meet or exceed the local and state standards needed to successfully transition to middle school and to take advantage of the highest educational opportunities available.

About Us:
Riverchase Elementary, where dreams take flight, is located in Coppell and serves approximately 315 students from Kindergarten through fifth grade. Students and staff are challenged to meet goals and strive for excellence. An involved ParentTeacher Association and active parent involvement help students and staff meet their goals. Riverchase is a uniform school. Students wear khaki or navy bottoms (shorts, slacks, skirts, skorts, or jumpers) with a collared, polo style shirt of navy, hunter green, or white. Girls may wear a white blouse. Fridays are spirit wear days and regular-cut jeans with a school spirit shirt or regular uniform is acceptable.

District Goal:
The goal of the Carrollton-Farmers Branch ISD is high achievement for all students.

Service and Character Initiatives:


The school's character education program centers around its mascot, the eagle. Eagle Honors and Soaring Eagle help highlight academic and citizenship accomplishments. The motto, "Watch Us Soar!" aptly describes expectations for all students, staff, and parents. We have implemented R Time and Morning Meetings. R Time is a character building program.

Gretchen Biery, Riverchase Librarian In an ever changing world, it's so nice to look around and see Riverchase as such a culturally diverse place. - Matt Smith, Riverchase 5th Grade Riverchase supports all children in every way. As a Language Arts teacher, I see how important it is for teachers, students and parents to all work together as a community. We, parents and teachers, are all here for one purpose.to see our children succeed. - Jeff Heine, 3rd Grade Teacher Our principal and our PTA have worked together to increase our number of volunteers. Parents are excited to volunteer and get involved at Riverchase. Cindy Pick, Parent and PTA Volunteer Coordinator I have had the pleasure of working with the ATB (After the Bell) Program at Riverchase since its inception. This has given me a wonderful opportunity to watch the children grow and mature over the course of their school years. In addition, I have been able to receive a behind the scenes look at the incredible educational opportunities afforded to our students. The teachers care deeply not only for the education of the students, but for the development of their character and spirit as well. Our teachers are dedicated to their profession and have a genuine love for their students. This is evident in the smiles and joy that I see each and every day on the children's faces as they begin their afternoons at ATB. - Jo Ann Farrar, Grandparent and ATB Staff Member Riverchase is an amazing campus with a fantastic staff of teachers and administrators dedicated to the educational well-being of our students. They consistently deliver their best and have a true passion for teaching. I am proud to have been affiliated with the school for the past 8 years and in that time, have seen the school continually embrace a commitment to excellence. Our community is extremely fortunate to have such a fine school as Riverchase in their backyard. Gina Mote, Parent
