The David A. Stein Riverdale/Kingsbridge Academy, also known as MS/HS 141, is committed to providing a rigorous curriculum in a community-based environment. We offer a comprehensive liberal arts and science program that exceeds new York State standards and takes advantage of the rapidly expanding technological opportunities of the Information Age.
We seek to create an atmosphere that will challenge each individual student to become a creative, independent, critical thinker and foster a life-long love of learning. We encourage students to accept the risks and rigors of academic life in order to achieve mastery in a variety of disciplines including intellectual, artistic, physical, moral and emotional development.
As a 6th through 12th grade preparatory school, the Riverdale/Kingsbridge Academy provides students with the skills needed to achieve their potential through a variety of learning styles and demonstrate mastery on standardized and performance assessments. The middle school component will prepare students for the demands of a rigorous high school education. The high school component will offer students a viable alternative to selective high schools throughout the city. The school will offer maximum opportunities for enrollment in accelerated courses.
The David A. Stein Riverdale/Kingsbridge Academy reflects and celebrates the diversity of the community it serves. Toward this end, we seek partnerships with local institutions including our colleagues in academia. At the center of this collaborative effort are our teaching staff and administrators, the educational professionals who lead our children, parents, and community in the quest to nurture and strengthen local public education.
