Academics, Arts, Engaged Culture Help Riverdale High Make the Grade

Riverdale High School art teacher Kimberly Robinson has fond memories of her first day on the job.

“Riverdale is an amazing school,” said Robinson. “I will say this, my first day here, a student held the door open for me. And a lot of people have negative thoughts about teenagers, and when this child that didn’t know me held the door open for me, I knew I was home.”

Robinson is one of many who proudly call Riverdale home. That strong school pride is just one of many factors that earned Riverdale an A on the recent Louisiana state report card…the first open enrollment high school to do so in Jefferson Parish.
