Why Riverside?

“This school has made my son able to enjoy learning for the first time in his life. Since the first week he has come home smiling at the end of the school day. He no longer feels as if he is the only kid that struggles to read and write. The teachers and the programs are great beyond measure.” – Riverside Parent

Learning to read should be as easy as ABC. For 1 out of 5 children it’s not.

Riverside School is the only school in Virginia to offer one-on-one language instruction to all students as part of its curriculum.  Our program offers a teaching approach which is specifically designed to meet the educational needs of students in grades K-8 with dyslexia and similar language-based differences. In addition, we offer small class sizes, individualized curriculum, physical education, ballroom dance, expressive arts, and classroom technology including SmartBoards and laptops for all students.
