To ensure success, the highly qualified teachers provide a rigorous and supportive academic experience that motivates all learners to meet high expectations.

I encourage you to get involved in your child’s education by taking an active interest in their learning and volunteering on campus through classroom activities, parent education opportunities, fundraisers, PFO, and other school events. Please check out our website and social media for upcoming events and opportunities to be involved.
I look forward to our partnership in providing the best education possible for our students. Please do not hesitate to call the school office for any assistance.
Mr. Christopher Ash
Principal, Riverdale Elementary
The team of dedicated and talented teachers and staff at Riverdale Elementary are committed to preparing all students to be successful and responsible citizens who contribute and thrive in a diverse society. To ensure success we provide a rigorous and supportive academic experience that motivates all learners to meet high expectations.
We recognizing that students learn in different ways. 1:1 technology makes it possible for our teachers to differentiate using a variety of teaching methods. Our objective is to put a tool into the hands of every student that will make their education more engaging, and positively transform the way teaching and learning takes place.
The arts are also an essential part of educating students. Riverdale is very proud to be one of only 12 schools in Orange County to be part of the Disney Musical in Schools program. Each year teachers and students proudly produce a Disney musical. The program not only teaches the students how to sing and dance together, but brings the school community together to help with the production. We hope you can join us for the performance in the spring.
Every day we teach and reinforce the skills that are necessary for academic achievement and preparing our students not only for Intermediate school but for college and beyond. Each year sixth grade students participate in the College and Career Mentoring Program. This program is led by former Riverdale students that are currently attending college. These college mentors teach with the purpose of helping students develop skills necessary to be successful in school and share their college experience.
These are only a few of the wonderful programs that we provide at Riverdale. We encourage you to get involved in your child’s education by taking an active interest in their learning and volunteering on campus through classroom activities, parent education, fundraisers, PFO, and other school events.
