RIVERSIDE IS THE ONLY SCHOOL IN VIRGINIA TO OFFER ONE-ON-ONE LANGUAGE INSTRUCTION TO ALL STUDENTS AS PART OF ITS CURRICULUM.
We offer a different way of teaching, specifically designed to meet the educational needs of students in grades K-8 with dyslexia and similar language-based differences. Our students benefit from small class sizes, individualized curriculum, physical education, ballroom dance, expressive arts, and classroom technology including SmartBoards and laptops for all students.
“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
Founded by teacher and mentor Patricia DeOrio, herself dyslexic, we’ve always understood what it takes to unlock the potential of children with learning differences.
We use the Orton-Gillingham Approach, recognizing and organizing the raw materials of language for thinking and use.
In the Classroom
Instruction is highly specialized and individualized, and our teachers have an unequaled commitment to creatively teaching and nurturing each child.
