Students representing 8 foreign countries: Dubai, Bermuda, Germany, Burundi, the Dominican Republic, Singapore, Nigeria and Saudi Arabia will participate in a special flag ceremony.
Riverview School has a long tradition of educating students from foreign countries. According to Maria Cashdollar, Assistant Head of School and Director of Education at Riverview, “International families come to Riverview for the same reason as National and local families, to offer their children the best possible learning environment and opportunities. Many foreign countries don’t have services for special needs, and in some countries, learning challenges are still very much misunderstood and stigmatized. All of our parents are looking for a school that is willing to partner with them to help their children obtain full and meaningful lives.”
Riverview School, an independent coeducational boarding/day school, provides a caring community for adolescents and young adults with complex language, learning and cognitive challenges. The School is committed to developing student competence and confidence in academic, social and independent living skills.
