Board of Trustees

The Riviera Ridge School is an independent, coeducational day school serving students from three years old through Middle School.

The Riviera Ridge School is governed by the Board of Trustees who maintain the fiduciary management of the school and entrust the leadership and daily operations to the Head of School and Administrative team.

The Riviera Ridge School Trustees are enthusiastically represented by The Riviera Ridge School and Marymount alumni, alumni parents, community and educational philanthropists, and current parents. As dedicated volunteers, The Riviera Ridge School Trustees focus exclusively on policies and strategies that are future-focused. They generously contribute their time, thought, and energy, as well as financial resources, to support the viability and continued growth of The Riviera Ridge School.
