A Portland, Oregon School District 

Resident students, those who live in or are moving into our district, are welcome to join Riverdale Grade School or Riverdale High School at any point in the school year. After all, we are your public school district, and we look forward to educating your children and involving you in our school community. View district boundary map.

Non-resident students who live outside our district and are seeking the sought-after Riverdale education can take part in our annual enrollment lottery. If you earn a spot, you'll have two options for attendance: seek out an inter-district transfer from your home district or pay tuition. We'll explain more about that once you click the Non-Resident Enrollment Lottery button below. Requests for enrollment are accepted September through mid-February for the following school year. During that time frame, we offer several ways to visit our schools so you can determine if Riverdale is the right fit for you.

Applications for the 2024-25' school year are now closed.
