It takes a village to raise children and I have been so fortunate to have the Riviera family as an integral part of my village. In the early grades, the teachers and staff are very nurturing. In the upper grades they are supportive and set clear expectations. The students are being taught to be lifelong learners who take pride in their education and knowledge. The Parents Club does a great job of creating events for parents to get together, and you feel a real sense of a community - very family oriented. Love this school! I encourage you to check it out!

FANTASTIC SCHOOL! Riviera has it all! Strong academic programs, athletics, fine arts, an outstanding faculty, and plenty of opportunities for students to get involved. I am so grateful that I was able to attend Riviera as a student and continue to be involved as a parent.
My daughters have been students at Riviera since 2012, since the youngest was in Kindergarten.
Our experience both at the Day School and the Prep has always been outstanding.
The teachers, faculty and staff are strict but friendly and make sure every student performs to their full potential.
The environment is safe and there is an impressive sense of community, of family.
I certainly recommend the school to any parents looking for excellence.
