The Riverside School
The Riverside School is a dynamic PreK-8th grade independent school. We believe in active learning, patient leadership, engaged citizenship, and supportive community. We are an approved independent school for tuitioning towns, and are accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges.
We believe that a challenging, inspiring and diverse early education leads to future academic achievement and positive adulthood. The Riverside School curriculum integrates; sciences, literature, social studies, modern and classical languages, fine arts, athletics, and healthy living. Teachers model scholarship in their fields and a passion for lifelong learning. Students exercise curiosity, critical thinking, and creativity to take their learning several steps beyond minimal exposure. Through this effort we help students to find delight in the blend of art, academic, physical and social skill development.
Riverside students respect and appreciate the individual qualities of themselves and their peers. Strong, positive character is a trait we believe to be as important to future success as academic achievement. We develop leadership, responsibility, respect, compassion, and individual strengths of each student in various parts of the school day and throughout the academic year. Character building happens in small class discussions, cross-grade interactions, advisory conversations, and opportunities students have to demonstrate diverse talents.
Riverside students understand how to apply their learning and leadership skills outside of the classroom. Student-led assemblies, cross-grade mentoring and daily cooperative school cleanup all help to cement the school community. Service projects and current events discussions help connect the school to the local community, the nation and the world. Students practice community participation and plan to use what they have learned to enhance the world around them.
Riverside's small size and family atmosphere encourage a nurturing community. The Riverside community fosters meaningful relationships between students, teachers and parents through open communication, shared celebration and a common investment in our students. Students take pride and feel ownership for the caring, safe and positive environment.Riverside is recognized as a dynamic independent K-8th grade school in the Northeast Kingdom. We have been comfortably situated for 30 years in a historical landmark in the village of Lyndon, Vermont. - See more at: http://www.theriversideschool.org
