My experience so far has been amazing, at first I don’t know what to expect but when I started to see and tour the campus of RCC it’s amazing the people here aren’t annoying and teachers get you involved and care. They’ll take the time to talk to you schedule a meeting with you if you have a problem they honestly care. The faculty in the welcome center and library are nice they’ll try to help you with getting a meeting with a counselor and a room for study activities. RCC is an amazing school I recommend it to anyone who wants to start off they’re careers.

I have gone to Riverside my entire life and have finally hit my senior year. With a new high school comes new opportunities for the school to take advantage of, and it gives the students a chance to experience something they would not have otherwise. The great staff and teachers put a smile on my face on most days and offer a very friendly learning environment. The only thing I would change would be the way we are prepared for education after high school. Our counselor could do more for us and ready us by teaching us how college is and how to fill out scholarships and things like that.
My time here was enjoyable most of the time. I enjoyed most of the teachers and most of the classes. However, there aren't many opportunities because it's such a small school.
