Rivendell offers a vibrant learning environment in which students, teachers and administrators are encouraged to be their best.

Rivendell, one of the first PreK-12 interstate school districts in the country, was created to unite and provide better educational opportunity to four diverse, geographically disparate towns in both New Hampshire and Vermont. Having embraced and succeeded in establishing such a broad reaching district, Rivendell has learned to be bold in its approaches. Rivendell dares to expect more – from its administrators, its faculty and its students – and we are ever-vigilant in our quest for educational excellence.

At our core, Rivendell and its faculty inspire each child to find their own learning path - offering rigorous academics, a broad range of co-curricular activities, service learning opportunities and classroom integration with our rural environment through the Cross Rivendell Trails. Rivendell staff are top notch and shape the excellence of our programs which include afterschool enrichment activities and SummerScapes/Eco Fun camps for all district students. Our philosophy extends from our Early Childhood Program through our Academy: Students are encouraged to question the world around them, pursue their own lines of inquiry and develop projects independently. Helping them foster a lifelong love of learning is our ultimate goal.

As our students strive to be their best, our educational team creates an environment that is supportive, safe, encouraging, nurturing. Since its inception, Rivendell is a work in progress – offering classic educational pursuits, creating an environment that prepares students for the technology and other demands of the 21st century, and insuring that we all grow as thoughtful, committed, active citizens of our towns, our country and our world.
