Students, sitting on benches, relax on Jones Lawn.

Working with the Upper School Sustainability Club, Riverdale Country School has adopted the following policy statement:

We, the Riverdale Country School Community, commit to the following:

  • Upholding sustainable practices
  • Educating about Sustainability
  • Considering how our individual and institutional actions affect the environment

We acknowledge that we, as both a school and a community of individuals, have a responsibility to recognize the state of our planet and the actions we can take to help, however small. We also acknowledge that we, as a community of educators and learners, must reflect upon our role as global citizens to learn and teach through a sustainable lens. We will think about Sustainability in an environmental, societal, and economic context.
