School Notes

  • Founded in 1976, Rivendell School is an independent school in Fort Collins, Colorado. Thanks to the vision and hard work of our state-licensed teachers and involved parents, we have proudly helped hundreds of children grow into well-educated, imaginative, caring, and responsible citizens. Rivendell School`s individualized approach to education-a proven method for increasing subject mastery-focuses on the progress of each child rather than on the class average. Each student is constantly evaluated, challenged, and encouraged to perform to his or her full potential. Engaging every individual in the learning process produces the best results for each student.

School Reviews

I am a new teacher at Rivendell and I absolutely love this school! I am so impressed by the attention to detail and focus on individualized learning. I think that the small class sizes allow students to receive the attention they need. Students excel when they are given the opportunity to work on their specific needs.
