Ways to Visit
Have you checked out our Riverdale At-a-Glance and Enrollment Options pages? These are great places to begin getting to know us before your visit. Also, take a look at our most recent District Newsletters.
Finding the right fit when it comes to school is very important. That’s why we recommend you try us on for size. Here are ways you can visit us:
High School Info Day
Each fall during High School Info Day, our high school opens its doors to families from within our district boundaries and across the greater Portland area. Families will hear from the principal, teachers and student speakers, and have the opportunity to tour the school. You'll get acquainted with Riverdale campus life by visiting classrooms; getting to know teachers, students and parents; and learning about specific programs, clubs and sports. This is the perfect chance to experience all that our high school has to offer and get answers to your burning questions. We hope to see you there.
This year's High School Info Day has already passed. Our next event will be in November 2017. However, you may schedule a Shadow Day through February 2017.
Note: There will not be a formal Info Day for Riverdale Grade School. Please see information about tours below.
Grade School Tours - Now through February
Families interested in our grade school can visit during private tours of our campus led by our enrollment coordinator. Tours are available September through February, to align with our non-resident enrollment process (new residents can contact us to arrange tours outside of this timeframe). During the tour, you will have the chance to observe classrooms and our enrollment coordinator will answer your questions.
High School Shadow Days - Now through February
The best way to discover what it’s like to be a Riverdale High School student is to spend a day visiting the high school and shadowing a current student. While it’s not required, it will provide a taste of what it’s really like here on a daily basis. Shadow Days take place from mid-September through February. High school Shadow Days are available for students who are currently in 8th-9th grade. Keep in mind, when students arrive for their Shadow Day, we will also have a Riverdale parent on hand to answer parent questions about school culture, academics, etc. So please leave some time in your schedule for this valuable parent-to-parent experience.
Note: Middle School Shadow Days will be available on a limited basis to middle school students who are accepted through our non-resident enrollment process. These will take place in March. You will be contacted to schedule if your student is accepted.
