The development of learning competence and sound character are two principal goals of a Riverdale education. Our curriculum will therefore focus on those attitudes, knowledge and skills that will foster these qualities through modern teaching-learning practices. The qualities of world citizenship, tolerance and a distinctive lack of social or religious prejudice are important elements of this approach.

We live in an age of momentous change. The future citizen must be a competent learner in order to keep pace with an ever-advancing civilization. Education must also provide him with an inner moral compass to distinguish between right and wrong so that he walks the spiritual path with practical feet.

  • Riverdale aims at creating a world community reflecting the principle " Unity in Diversity". The experience and study at this institution must produce a world citizen whose motto in life should be "Excellence in all things".
  • Learning is the key to growth . we will attempt to make students independent learners.
  •  Understanding is the goal of our instructional process, not a mere knowledge of facts. Students must develop the ability to use knowledge effectively in new situations and diverse contexts.
  • The school will provide guidance and arrange its social and academic environment for the development of human virtues.
