Principal's Message

Elementary School Principal



Riverside Elementary School is proud of our mission; "To work to ensure that all students achieve educational excellence. Through a strong sense of community, a rich curricular program, an inspiring learning atmosphere, and a commitment to character, Riverside Elementary will prepare its students to become strong participants and leaders in the world community."

Riverside Elementary School is also proud of its rigorous academic programs. These programs will prepare our students to meet the growing challenges of the Middle School and the PARCC. New mathematics and language arts program adoptions help to assure that we are fully aligned with the Common Core. In addition to challenging our students academically, we teach our children a sense of responsibility and wise decision-making skills.  We view our children as individuals, and our teaching methodologies reflect the same.

The warm and positive atmosphere that characterizes our school is tribute to all its partners. Riverside is built on the strengths of each member of the school learning community. Through continuing curriculum and program revisions and updates we strive to address the changing needs of all of our pupils toward the end of offering greater opportunity for student success.
