Riverside SchoolHigh quality education in the English language for children aged 3-18
Riverside is an International School for children between the ages of 3 and 18 years. The Primary School is from 3-11 years and the High School is from 12 to 18 years.
Riverside's location is in a picturesque setting by the Vltava River. Its educational programme is based on the British National Curriculum and International Curricular Sources adapted to the needs of an international student body. There are 325 students on roll of which 200 are in the Primary School and 140 in the High School. Approximately 30 nationalities are represented. The majority of students come from the UK, US, France, Canada and the Czech Republic.
Riverside is a school with an underlying Christian ethos and is attractive to families of all faiths and none. The class sizes range from 10 to 18 students. In the younger classes a learning support assistant supports the teacher. The teachers are all qualified and come from the UK, the US, Canada and New Zealand.
In the Primary School we teach Czech conversation up to the age of 7 and then teach French, Spanish or Czech from 7 upwards. We teach special Czech classes for our Czech students, enabling them to remain within the Czech educational system. In the High School students choose between Czech, French and Spanish.
We would be pleased to send you our Primary and High School curriculum documents. These outline the courses which are taught in each year group. Essentially High School students study for and sit IGCSE and Advanced Level Examinations for Higher education in Europe and are awarded credits and receive a High School Diploma for entry into Higher education in North America.
The High School has a number of sporting activities with students competing in Track and Field with International Schools in Europe and in Soccer and Basketball against international schools in the Czech Republic.
Riverside is a family orientated school and has close links with the parents. The close social grouping of the parents is very supportive, in particular for families new to Prague.
Apart from the nursery class, all other Primary classes are for the whole day from 8.00am until 4.30pm. After school each day there is the opportunity for the students to take part in a wide range of extra-curricular activities.
