Program enrolment may not equal a school's total enrolment because:

  • students may be enrolled in more than one program, and
  • some programs are not shown.

Enrolment data gives parents a general understanding of the number of students at a school or enrolled in a program. Although we’ve made every reasonable effort to ensure the data is accurate, there may still be errors. To confirm enrolment, contact the school.

About Riverdale School

Riverdale School is located close to the city center in the historic river valley community of Riverdale. Our school has a small, but growing student population, proudly serving students from the Riverdale community and Edmonton at large.

We benefit greatly from a parent community that values education, a strong volunteer base, an active parent advisory council and a positive relationship with the Riverdale Community League. We lease space to the Riverdale Out of School Care, which provides before and after school programming. We provide gymnasium use for the Riverdale Community League & Out of School Club and library use for the Riverdale Community Childcare Centre.  

Our teachers are committed to high-quality teaching practices, providing differentiated programming for students and working collaboratively to provide rich academic experience. Language Arts programming is offered through Lucy Calkins Reading and Writing Programs. Students receive instruction in French as a Second Language starting in Grade 4 and a music specialist supports students in Kindergarten to Grade 6. All classrooms are equipped with technology. We offer a variety of extracurricular clubs and teams, numerous field trips and enrichment experiences, and City of Edmonton programs serve to enhance our school.  

The mission at Riverdale School is to work as a community to create authentic learning experiences to ensure learners understand their value and potential in society. Our vision is to empower learners to successfully meet the challenges of tomorrow.


We believe:

  • In challenging each student to develop 21st century competencies in an inclusive, safe, supportive and stimulating environment
  • In working collaboratively so that all students experience high levels of success
  • In quality assessment practices that inform instruction and targeted intervention and enrichment that supports student achievement
  • In being responsive to the needs of our school community
