Senior year at Riverdale is a time of possibility as students apply for college and take advantage of opportunities to take advanced interdisciplinary courses, design an independent study project, write and deliver a senior speech or TED Talk, lead a mini-course or affinity group, take part in a student-directed and produced theatrical production, and juggle an array of after-school activities. The year goes quickly!
