Our spacious and leafy campuses create an exceptional educational experience. Riverdale students learn to take responsibility for their learning, which happens inside the classrooms and on our grounds. To preserve the school's natural beauty, we tackle issues such as water use, energy conservation, and sustainability. Students help audit energy use, build solar arrays, and restore buildings. We teach that sustainable practices are our responsibility as global citizens.

“One can't help being taken by the physical beauty of Riverdale – the lush lawns, the beautiful trees, the tennis courts and playing fields, the historic buildings, the view of Van Cortlandt Park from the dining room. Riverdale is as beautiful as any northeast boarding school with the wonderful advantage that you see your children at dinnertime.” Riverdale Upper School Parent


Places to Thrive
