We have had two children attend Riverdale High School over the past few years. We live out of the school district, so we had to pay tuition for our children to attend Riverdale. It was an excellent investment in our children's future. I was very impressed with the quality of teaching at Riverdale. RIverdale teachers enjoy teaching and hold students to high academic standards and encourage them to do their best work, but also provide support to students who need an extra boost. The school is small and intimate, so the teachers and administrators know the kids. As a result, few kids seem to fall through the cracks as they might in a larger public school. Our kids were well prepared for college by the time they each graduated. We were very happy with our family's Riverdale educational experience. We highly recommend this school to prospective Riverdale families.

Attending Riverdale High School more than adequately prepared me for applying and attending college. With extensive academics and a lot of support for students via small classes and teachers enthusiastic and well versed in their subjects, I learned a lot over my four year education, and I took this knowledge with me to my university. Because four years are required for every standard area, I had to study in math, science, English, history, and art every year. Unlike other public schools, where these aren't required, I was given the skills and ability to perform beyond expectations. I had a great experience working with the teachers, and graduated from high school with a high GPA thanks to their commitment to helping their students succeed.
Riverdale High School is a small college prep high school. While it was academically challenging, and I constantly felt challenged, I am so very grateful to all of the amazing teachers there.
