Riverdale is at its heart experiential and interdisciplinary. In every classroom, and in all our co-curricular activities, we help students understand how their learning and development is connected to the world, their lives, and the work of others. It’s an ambitious and powerful approach – and it takes more time, more of the very best teachers, more resources, and more of a commitment from all of us – including those who can help Riverdale realize its vision through philanthropy.
Build an environment that can make Riverdale a hub of interdisciplinary activity and a center of 21st-century learning.
