Our School

Riviera Day School Campus

Established in 1950, Riviera's campus in Coral Gables is the city's oldest independent school and is home to our students in preschool, kindergarten, and grades one through five. Riviera is known throughout the community for its long tradition of academic excellence and its ability to guide each student to reach his or her full potential. The unique environment allows students to grow in a familial and collegial atmosphere while having access to extensive resources and support.

 

Riviera Preparatory School Campus

Our Preparatory School campus houses our students in sixth grade through twelfth grade and is centrally located on fifteen beautifully manicured acres, just minutes away from our Day School campus. As our students grow, we promote an increased sense of independence and foster a heightened sense of personal responsibility. Students are free to explore endless academic, creative, athletic, and social pursuits in a structured yet personal environment. 

 


 

70 Years of Excellence

"As we celebrate seven decades of tradition at Riviera, we are reminded of the significant role that our school has played in our community and in the lives of the students, families, and faculty members we have touched. We are proud to have contributed so greatly to our students, fostering academic excellence and instilling in them a sense of self-worth and independence. We have stood the test of time by remaining true to our mission and values, and by striving for excellence in every area."
