The Riverside School is dedicated to the ideal that children be involved, enthusiastic participants in their education.
We nurture and encourage curiosity, creativity, and individuality, and we instill in students an appreciation for hard work.
We believe that children can learn to be strong, effective leaders, and we are committed to developing in our students the skills necessary to take on leadership roles.
We believe that students must be aware of and be active in the broader world around them in order to become ethical and compassionate members of society.
Support for our students' growth as learners, leaders, and citizens must come from every element of the Riverside community, both in and out of the classroom; therefore, we value and rely on the deep involvement of parents, faculty, staff, and administration in the development of our students.
