My experience at River Dell has been absolutely amazing and the teachers and administration want to produce life long learners.The rigorous workload has helped me feel prepared for college. All of the teachers push their students to be their best and achieve all of our goals. Not only have I had a positive experience with my academic career at River Dell, I have had a successful athletic career. All of the coaches and athletic director are so supportive and help every student-athlete be the best on and off the field.

There are plenty of opportunities to learn and excel but many students don't take that opportunity and do drugs or something like that so they can be "cool". A good portion of the kids seem to care only about sports and disregard grades completely, which shouldn't be the case. For the kids who do work hard and challenge themselves academically, there are challenging AP classes to take with good teachers. The sports are very good. The coaches are pretty great and riverdell prides itself on its football team. Riverdell lacks in diversity and the majority of the school is white, which explains why many value parties, sports, and instagram likes over academics.
I loved my four years at River Dell High School. The teachers and administration are very supportive of students. There are many ways to get involved in the academic, social and athletic activities. The more you are involved in the more you will feel that you are "a part" of the school. River Dell is a positive, safe environment for learning and growing as a young adult. There is a wide variety of classes, ranging from basic to advanced levels, to choose from. The workload and the expectations from teachers prepare you for college. River Dell has a lot of school spirit and is involved and supported by the River Edge and Oradell communities.
