Implementing innovative curricular advancements at Riverside Presbyterian Day School is the direct result of High Quality Teaching and Professional Teamwork. The RPDS faculty advances our curriculum through High Quality Teaching that is infused with a deep understanding of child development, knowledge of current educational pedagogy and commitment to the school’s Mission. At Riverside Presbyterian Day School we say, “Our Teachers ARE the Curriculum”.
Every RPDS teacher serves on an academic Vertical Team. These teams are teacher led and structured to maximize the expertise of teaching at every grade level; PreK 3 through 6th Grade. A vertically aligned curriculum is developmentally inspired for optimal learning and student engagement. Our collaboration results in a learning model where faculty skillfully teach to the needs, curiosities, and learning styles of their students. Through High Quality Teaching and Professional Teamwork a superior RPDS curriculum is intentionally designed. We are committed to providing a solid academic foundation that is responsive to the hearts, hands and minds of each child.
