    School Philosophy

    Riverdale School exists to develop and prepare students for a lifelong journey of learning. We offer a collaborative, inclusive, and safe environment for K-6 children to express themselves, learn, and grow into well-rounded students prepared for the adventures of junior high school and beyond.

    We believe in academic excellence, paired with sporting activity, and arts, all wrapped up with a focus on environmentalism and learning about the land that surrounds our school. Students at Riverdale School experience smaller class sizes that empower teachers to meet learners where they are at in their educational journey.

    Our students leave Riverdale School optimistic and prepared to tackle the next phase in their education both in and outside of the classroom. Fostered through supportive parent-teacher relationships and a safe community filled with folks who look out for one another, Riverdale School sets students up for success in education and life.

Principal Message

Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year!

This year holds a special place in our hearts as we celebrate our 100th anniversary! This milestone takes us back to the roots and traditions that have shaped Riverdale School into the outstanding school that it is today.

At Riverdale School, our mission is to offer students exceptional educational experiences that foster academic achievement and embrace the unique opportunities our location in the River Valley provides. Our commitment to strong family partnerships ensures that every student receives the support and guidance they need to thrive.

Riverdale has earned a reputation as a small school with a big heart, and it's a reputation we're proud to embrace. Our close-knit community of students, parents, teachers, and neighbours stands as a testament to the power of our intimate environment. We collaborate and support each other like one big family, creating a nurturing and comfortable atmosphere that empowers our students to explore, learn, and grow into their authentic selves.

I am truly honoured to be part of the Riverdale team, working collaboratively to ensure every student receives the best possible learning opportunities throughout their time with us. By joining forces with you as partners in education, we aim to unlock the full potential of each student.

Once again, welcome to an exciting year at Riverdale School, where tradition, innovation, and community unite to create a truly exceptional learning environment. Here's to a century of excellence and the limitless potential ahead!

Yours in partnership,

Mrs. Karen Teague, Principal
