Riverdale is a family-oriented high school with caring, compassionate, and accomplished staff. Riverdale is a part of our community and many generations of families have gone here. I really like what the new administration is doing and the kinds of teachers and classes that they are bringing in. Sports and IB is big here but kids who are not in those programs have a equally great academic program that they can get involved in.
Have had two children attend Riverdale and go through the IB program. One graduated and one is in his Senior year. We have had an amazing eperience! The teachers and staff in IB Administration are wonderful. They are dedicated and truly care about the students' success and well-being. Riverdale's family atmosphere makes it feel like coming home every time I walk through the doors.
The reason I put average is because some teachers in the school do not grade a single paper that is turned in by students. This could be overlooked if it was a single quarter, but this has been going on for the entire school year. All the other classes I attend are good, some slightly worse than others, but still good. The school is focused towards athletics, so naturally half of all the electives are sports related. The other half is composed of 1/3 band classes, few tech classes, foriegn language, and drivers ed. There are a few more I cannot think off the top of my head, but at the time of this writing, there were not enough classes that suited my needs. -5/15/17
IB Program is top notch. Like any public schools, it is not without it's shortcomings, but the staff seems to care and the sports programs are improving. Overall, the IB program is what gets Riverdale the 5 stars.
