Riverdale High School is a public secondary school in Jefferson, Louisiana.



Riverdale High School was established in 1962 as an all-girls, grades 10-12 high school, with a Scottish Lassie as the mascot. The school became coed in 1980 and the mascot changed to the Scottish Rebel. Grades 7-9 were added in 1986, followed by grade 6 in 1988, but the middle and high school programs were split into separate schools in 1994.
