I am Abeer Al Jashaami, I have really the best experience in my high school years, I was the right hands of my teachers. I always was smart, respectful, hard work, passion, motivated, capable, and responsible. Riverside H.S help me to get the diploma in the easiest and the best ways as possible. The faculty and staff are really understandable and kinds. All the teachers there help all the students to get the highest education and connecting the school w/ the real life. I really encourage most of the student to state the life in the high school there. There not all of the changes Riverside H.S needs. but this not means everything perfect, But if you want to all the faculty, staff, and teachers will help you as much as they can.

I liked that their were a lot of diversity and the every student had different culture and that all my friends where from different places and I was happy to see and met does that were different I learned a lot from going to Riverside high school and I that Riverside high school to always have different student from all over the world because students can learn from each other.
I Like it because student and teacher having fun together and it easy to talk to your teacher about anything you don't understanding in class or problem outside school the teacher are willing to understand. If there might be change i will like the school to have more course that student are interesting at.
