Vicki Pede, Superintendent Riverdale Public School


Welcome to Riverdale! It is my pleasure to serve the district as Superintendent of the Riverdale Public School District. Part of my responsibilities include the Director of the Child Study Team as well. The Riverdale Public School District provides a quality education for students in kindergarten through eighth grade. In addition, we have a wonderful integrated pre-school for additional learning opportunities for our youngest children. We are a sending district to Pompton Lakes High School for a full range of educational services to our children. This sending-receiving relationship has been very successful; students from Riverdale are a welcome addition to the fine traditions already available in Pompton Lakes.

Our district encourages the growth and development of each student to his or her full potential, within a developmentally appropriate curriculum. We have a knowledgeable and talented staff who work to provide appropriate educational activities in their education of the whole child. Our district staff extends itself to offer opportunities for our students’ growth and development in areas that address specific needs of the whole child: cognitive, emotional, social and physical.

We are continually striving to improve upon what is already established. We have enjoyed a strong, positive relationship with the Borough and Riverdale Police which has helped us in our endeavors. Further, a dedicated Board of Education is at the helm working to provide the most appropriate education that can be offered. We welcome your input. Should you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to the superintendent at vpede@rpsnj.org. Thank you for visiting our website and exploring the possibilities that exist!
