Riverside Schools opened its doors in September 2009 with six pupils in the Elementary School. The College which commenced in 2017 coincidentally started with six students too. Today, the schools have grown to become household names and the first point of call for discerning parents in search of a rich academic experience for their children. The elementary school enrols children aged 3 months to 10 years (Crèche through Grade 6). Whilst the entry age for the college is 10 or 11 years. Both schools currently have a population of over three hundred pupils and students.

Our Schools are accredited by the Association of Private Educators in Nigeria (APEN) and the Ogun State Ministry of Education.

We aim to be a great place to learn, work and grow and a leader of technological impact in education.
