The Riddle Brook School motto of Inspire, Challenge, Celebrate truly captures how we as a school community approach each day. We believe that a balance of working hard and recognizing achievements is critical to a healthy and productive school environment. Furthermore, the staff at RBS continually works to engage families and the community to share in the successes and achievements of our students. Whether volunteering in the classroom, participating in extra-curricular activities, or joining their children at after school events, we recognize that it takes a village to raise a child, and our doors are always open to families of our students.

One of the hallmarks of the RBS staff is taking many of the challenges presented to educators and turning them into opportunities. Once such challenge that has become an opportunity to further student success is the evolution of technology over the past decade. With a focus on integrating technology seamlessly into the classroom, the staff at RBS has worked together to allow technology itself to become a transparent tool to teach core curriculum, a tool in which children use as an integral component to meet the challenges our curriculum provides. This approach has afforded RBS to be recognized throughout our district as well as state of New Hampshire.
