River Campus

The Riverdale experience begins at the River Campus, which serves 375 children from Pre-Kindergarten through fifth grade. Located on eight tree-lined acres alongside the Hudson River, and tucked beneath the Wave Hill Public Garden, the River Campus provides airy and spacious classrooms in four buildings as well as an environmental science lab, tennis courts, gardens, a full-size playing field, and other outdoor spaces for learning and play.
