Riverdale Baptist School (RBS) is a ministry of Riverdale Baptist Church.
As a Christian educational institution, it will, therefore, reflect the philosophy, values and believers' lifestyle of Riverdale Baptist Church.
The administration, faculty and staff are born-again, Bible-believing Christians and active church members.
It is the school's desire to have a balanced educational program where excellence will permeate the spiritual, academic, physical and social aspects of our learning atmosphere.
It is also the school's wish to help in the reinforcement of the Christian home.
When the philosophy, values and lifestyle of a Christian home complement the school, the student will benefit most from this relationship.
Our objective is to develop within each student an understanding of how to think and how to apply himself, to develop within each student an effective attitude of self-discipline and responsibility and to develop in students the proper attitude, ideals, habits, knowledge and skills which are necessary preparation for life.
Riverdale Baptist School does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national and ethnic origin, gender or disability in the areas of admission, financial aid, athletics and other school related programs/activities.

School Reviews

I have enjoyed RBS over many years my son graduated in 2010. I currently have two children attending. The experience has been great. The teachers are engaging, enthusiastic and caring. The teachers inspire my children to do their best and to set goals and accomplish them.
