Riverdale High School
Riverdale High School offers Portland metropolitan area families a smaller, challenging secondary school in a supportive community. Based on the principles of the Coalition of Essential Schools, the Riverdale community has created a high school that offers an effective blend of personal attention and individual academic challenge.
Applications are welcomed from non-resident students on a tuition basis and a limited number of inter-district transfers. Tuition assistance grants are available on a financial-need basis. Individual tours can be arranged by appointment any time of the year. Please contact the High School office.
You can either request an admissions packet online or contract our Admissions Coordinator, Hilary Chandler.

Contact Hilary Chandler, Admissions Coordinator, at 503-262-4844, x4225 or via email email@example.com to ask for additional information, request an application, and/or schedule a parent tour or a student visit. Our regular office hours are 8:00 am to 4:30 pm Monday through Friday.
The first step is to return the completed application. An important part of the admissions process is for the student to visit the school and attend classes for a day. A parent and student interview will be conducted at that time to discuss academic promise, motivation, enthusiasm, creativity and any special talents.
The Admissions Committee looks at each student in light of the unique qualities he/she would bring to our school, the profile of a Riverdale High School graduate and the School’s mission. District policy also gives consideration to applicants, or their siblings, who have been previously enrolled in the district.
Early decision is available for applications received by December 1. Riverdale’s initial application deadline is February 1, with those applicants receiving notification by late March. After February 15th, Riverdale admits students on a rolling admissions schedule as long as space is available.
