Riverdale attracts teachers who are constantly learning, going deeper into their fields of expertise, staying current in best practices in their fields, expanding their knowledge and life experience so that they can develop fresh approaches to their work.
Every year, the Parents Association funds summer coursework for our faculty. In 2014, teachers took courses in the following subjects: voice, movement, and acting; spoken Latin; ancient Greek; ceramics; theatre production; Japanese; Spanish; and coursework for advanced degrees in their specializations.
