Riverdale Elementary School Vision Statement:

On their journey to becoming productive citizens of the global community, Riverdale School students will develop into proud, confident, independent problem solvers.

Consequently, they will develop positive self-esteem and display a high level of emotional intelligence. As a result of educational opportunities, students will accept the responsibilities of becoming creative, goal-oriented, self-motivated individuals willing to embrace challenges.
