Change Makers in the Making

In Middle School, learning doesn’t just happen in classrooms. It happens serendipitously through shared experience. Our community encourages participation, builds trust, and inspires excellence. In classrooms, outdoors, around New York, and across the globe, our Middle School students learn how they can change their school, their neighborhoods, and their world for the better. 

Middle School Welcome

Milton Sipp, Assistant Head of School and Head of Middle School, on how the Middle School challenges students to build learning skills while exploring interests and possibilities.

A Riverdale education

Learning is interactive and dynamic; students become explorers, researchers, artists, and musicians and are encouraged to examine and ask essential questions. We pay great attention to the balance between a strong curricular program and an extensive co-curricular program. Students can take intellectual/social/emotional risks within a supportive and safe community where they can learn and grow from their mistakes. We seek to provide each member with a profound understanding of his or her responsibility to each other and to the larger community, both at school and in the world beyond.

“The Middle School Curriculum asks students to be actively engaged in the learning process, to roll up their sleeves to become musicians and artists and researchers, to delve deeply into the material they’re studying, and to offer their own voice.” Milton sippHead of Middle School
