Senior Exhibition Highlights

This week was Riverdale High School’s renounced Senior X presentation day. I had the honor of observing two presentations, both of which I was the inside expert. Presentations ran a minimum of 45 minutes, exemplifying tremendous research, mastery of context, persuasive intent, and collated into no less than a university-level presentation that inspired and informed. Truly the highlight of my year was seeing what Riverdale High School students can accomplish, furthering the image that our students are not only university prepared but also exceptional and independent thinkers who are going to be change makers! Thank you to RHS Humanities Teacher Laura Keldorf for including me in this process and providing our students with these above and beyond educational opportunities.

Preschool Survey

Riverdale is exploring the option of starting a preschool (not to be confused with a daycare) for the 24-25 School Year. By filling out this survey, you would be helping us define level of interest and any potential program design elements. Even if you do not have a child of preschool age, we would appreciate your input. Thank you.

Class of 2023 College Acceptances

Our Class of 2023 experienced tremendous success in the application process, and in the fall, our students will begin their freshman years at colleges and universities throughout the nation. As is consistent with the trend we’ve seen in the last five years, acceptance rates have continued to decline, and many of the universities below saw their acceptance rates fall (often far) below 10%. While a few of the schools may change depending upon news about waitlists, our Class of 2023 has officially enrolled at the following institutions:



Communications Survey

Please take this survey to help us improve how we communicate with RSD families. Questions are related to communications during the 2022-23 School Year.
