9 Parent Reviews for Riverside High School

A noticeable decline in quality over the past ten years. Positions opened due to teacher retirements don't seem to have been filled with the best candidates. The environment is an odd combination of tense and dreary. Teachers seem generally unenthusiastic, borderline apathetic but somehow agitated ...  Read more

I am a former student of Riverside High School and it is not as bad as half these ratings say. The education system lacks in some areas, but the system makes up for which it lacks. Their Spanish classes prepared me above and beyond where I needed to be in college. The biggest factor is your child ...  Read more

I thought the school is amazing, large enough is get the job done and small enough to know you by name. They embraced me and my children with open arms. My children are in advanced classes offered in all grades and have the potential to earn many college credits, even in 11th grade. Awesome school. ...  Read more

Not the most outstanding school. There are good kids here but I beleive if the district would try harder they could be great kids. If you are looking for a blue ribbon school , this is not it. Sports are more important than other activities. Lacks in individual educational growth and inspiration.

The high school is older and environment is not very inspiring to the students. They need to update it and brighten up the school, seems so depressing. Seems to be a money problem, and taxes are getting higher. Some teachers seem to not have any creativity and enthusiasim. I feel I will be moving my ...  Read more

This school needs changes. Too many kids in the school are still without books. Yet we still get the word there is no shortage on them which is not true. On the other hand the high school is falling apart with numerous blackouts last year and many insect problems. The school schedule changes have been ...  Read more
