Message From the Head of School

Jerry Bates

Jerry Bates


Hello and thank you for taking the time to learn more about Riverfield Country Day School. Serving families with children two months ­through 12th grade, we have enjoyed over 35 years of growth and progress ― while remaining true to our family atmosphere and “whole student” approach to education and learning.

Starting as a Pre-School in 1984, we have grown our program to encompass Infants – Upper School students because our families are pleased with the unique Riverfield experience. They value our small class sizes and caring faculty and staff. They value the outdoor encounters we provide on our 120-acre wooded campus. And they value the exceptional way we facilitate the educational process ― building knowledgeable and capable, self-confident and self-aware, interested and interesting students ― to foster a lifelong love of learning.

This school year promises to be another exciting year at Riverfield. The benefit of an independent school education is that students can take advantage of a variety of extra-curricular opportunities and receive an excellent education. Riverfield is a growing and thriving school: we encourage you to learn more about us!
