Why Riverdale

DEIB at Riverdale

Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging (DEIB) are foundational elements that support the school’s mission and empower all students to learn and thrive in age appropriate ways at Riverdale and beyond. Our school practices around equity and community engagement foster a diverse and inclusive environment where the identity of each and every member is valued and respected. We are unified around our common values such as empathy, respect, and kindness; it is as much a part of the Riverdale experience to feel belonging as it is to create belonging for others.
