Grade 9 Orientation: Windsor Mountain
Prior to the first day of school, all Grade 9 students travel by bus to the idyllic Windsor Mountain International Camp in Windsor, NH for three days and two nights of class bonding. Students stay in cabins alongside members of their advisory and take part in activities with their new classmates that challenge them to get to know each other and form relationships that will carry through the rest of their time at Rivers.
Athletics at Rivers
Rivers believes that involvement in interscholastic athletics is a meaningful and integral part of each student's overall education.
Athletics at Rivers complements our rigorous academic program and provides another arena in which students can excel. The personal growth and achievements realized by our student athletes provide them with a balance between academic pursuits, physical endeavors, and social interaction.
Rivers athletic teams have won 12 NEPSAC and Independent School League championships over the last four years.
Clubs and Co-Curriculars
Rivers students prepare themselves for the world beyond by immersing themselves in our comprehensive program. That’s why you’ll find that Rivers students are more than scholars; they are athletes, artists, musicians, leaders, newspaper reporters, actors, and poets. And more than a few students are all of those things.
Students can also be involved in a wide array of clubs, including Model UN, Gender Sexuality Alliance, Diversity Club and Community Service Council. The school also has three student-run publications: The Rivers Edge, a national award-winning newspaper; The Current, the literary magazine; and The Nonesuch, the yearbook. And, thanks to student initiative, new clubs, events, and organizations continue to appear each year.
