Riverside Presbyterian Day School is a co-educational elementary school founded in 1948 as a mission of Riverside Presbyterian Church. From the modest beginnings of 19 kindergarten students and one teacher, the school has grown to over 500 students and 56 teachers while preparing three generations of Jacksonville children for success in secondary and post-secondary education. The school campus, which was once located in the church’s Sunday school rooms, now includes five buildings, an athletic field and four playgrounds.

Located in the historic Riverside community, the school is fully accredited and accepts academically qualified students in pre-kindergarten through sixth grade without regard for race, creed, color or national origin. Check out the RPDS website for more information.
