Riverdale Country School is a Pre-K through grade 12 day school in New York City that combines both traditional and innovative practices to provide an excellent Liberal Arts learning environment. Through our guiding principles—developing minds, building character, and creating community—we aim to shape disciplined and flexible individuals who will change global and local communities for the good.

Riverdale is seeking an innovative computer science teacher to develop and teach both introductory and advanced computer science classes, including an advanced CS elective in an area of their own expertise (e.g. AI/Machine Learning, Natural Language Processing, Blockchain, Cryptography, or Data/Databases/Analytics, to name a few). In addition, the computer science teacher will work with faculty in other departments to explore opportunities for incorporation of computer science into existing curricula. An ideal candidate would be interested in and able to work with either a middle school or upper school robotics team, as well. We hope that this candidate would be able to develop after-school co-curricular opportunities in computer science. Especially interesting candidates would be able to teach in other departments including science, art and math. An ideal candidate does not see limits and is interested in growing a program for students to think about and use technology in an authentic way.

All candidates for Riverdale teaching positions should demonstrate an interest in engaging students in an environment that is both supportive and rigorous and will participate in community activities including advising groups, service opportunities, or other co-curricular activities. Our Middle School and Upper School are located together on the Hill Campus, so candidates who demonstrate enthusiasm for teaching across the divisions are especially attractive.

Riverdale Country School is an Equal Opportunity Employer. Interested candidates should apply by sending an email to We are excited to see candidates from a variety of different backgrounds and experiences.
