Riverdale has joined the Harvard Graduate School of Education's Caring Schools #CommonGood campaign, which launches nationwide on March 6.
The purpose of the campaign is to encourage middle schools and high schools to prepare students to be positive community members. Participating schools agree to take a new action or build on an existing action that deepens students' care for others and their communities, increases equity and access for all students in the college admissions process, and reduces excessive achievement pressure.
In a letter to parents, Head of School Dominic A.A. Randolph said: "This campaign allows us to deepen and renew our commitments to ensuring that joy, wellbeing, and character, as well as the intellectual development of our students, are at the core of what constitutes a Riverdale education. We are proud to be part of national and global movements that commit to the truly human endeavor of teaching and learning."
