Riverside School is a phenomenal school that has a principle who is a passionate leader, gifted and devoted teachers, and a diverse, international student body due to its proximity to the university. From innovative science classes to great music and choral instruction, to McCarter Theater residencies and a large instructional garden, this school is on par with the best private international schools. A dream come true for our family.
My son has attended Riverside for 4 years. His transformation from a rough edged kindergartner to a gregarious student of history and social sciences has been amazing. My son is categorized as learning disabled so this change is such a gift. I credit this to the integrated approach the school has taken along with the leadership exhibited by the principal. It is a diverse school with active parent and community involved. I really appreciate this connectedness as a parent. And it demonstrates what can be the very best of public education. I wish I had gone to Riverside!
Riverside, by far, competes with the private schools available in the Princeton area. My son is challenged academically but the school recognizes what supports a child needs to achieve great success both academically and socially. Riverside is a parent's dream come true!
