Empowering teachers and students to use the new website as a platform to communicate the school’s commitment to help students become lifelong learners.
Riverdale Country School is a Pre-K through grade 12 independent school in New York City committed to empowering lifelong learners by developing minds, building character, and creating community in order to change our world for the good.
Designlounge worked with Riverdale to design the school’s website, beginning with initial strategy sessions and structure development up to the launch of the site and beyond. The website is the hub for prospective parents to learn about what the school has to offer and how it balances traditional learning with forward-looking strategies. The content embedded in the website’s structure communicates the main guiding principles of a Riverdale education that touch the mind, the character and the community: How we learn, who we are and how we interact with one another.

Website Architecture and Structure
A new underlying architecture was developed to establish a clear navigation for the Lower, Middle and Upper School sections, and all supporting departments. Following an approved site architecture, we continued to create a prototype for team evaluation and discussion. Once all templates were in place, we supplied site-wide specifications to the web developer. The project also included the setup for the alumni and parent portals.
Videos play an integral part in communicating the values of the school. A shot list was created to include all areas of learning at Riverdale. Designlounge designed the opening and closing video titles to ensure a consistent integration of the visual identity.
