Education is at the core of our vision for River Islands and our students will attend schools within our own charter organization under the Banta Unified School District, River Islands Academies.

More schools are in our plans, including a high school and a third K-8th, and the region is already home to the University of the Pacific, UC Merced, and California State University, Stanislaus.Read About River Islands Academies
