Riverdale is different. No school in the five boroughs has as much space as we do: 27.5 acres across two campuses in the Bronx. The trees, play areas, gardens, and outdoor learning spaces enliven the student experience.
The Lower School campus feels amazing and wonderful, as in wonder, full of it. There is this whole world of creativity.Recent graduate
