Riverdale High School
Riverdale is the high shcool for Riverdale School District (RSD).
Riverdale is located in the former Collins View Elementary School building.
Long story. Riverdale only had a elementary school for many years, in its own district. Students went from there into Lake Oswego or other school district for High School. But the the State passed a law (year?) that every school district must have a high school in its district, or else it would have to merge with another school district.
Riverdale could not get an exemption from this Law, so it pursued various locations on which to build a high school. Nothing in the law requires the actual building to be inside the boundary of the school district, so RSD rented space at Marylhusrt. Finally, the suplus status of the Collins View School was noted, and RDS entered into a long term agreement with PPS for the use of the building. The building has been expanded and remodeled.
The Riverdale School District bought the Collins View building from the city of Portland in 2001 for $2.5 million plus monthly rent of $10,000 on a 20-year lease. The high school is at 9727 S.W. Terwilliger Blvd (previously a segment Boones Ferry Road).
