Riverside High School has good administration who cares about their students. I liked the clubs hosted there, although I wish there were more students who participated in them. A lot of the "high national" clubs are more based on students giving money rather than actual service hours. I wish there were more teachers who taught science like chemistry and physics. I felt a bit underprepared in my physics class for the AP exam because we didn't get much practice and didn't focus on answering and explaining AP questions. But I enjoyed the school overall because of the good relationships I made with my friends and teachers (and librarians)!

It is an amazing school! I have been attending this school since 11th grade-12th grade. The teachers, administrators, and staff are extremely friendly and approachable. It was a great experience for me because the school environment has a sense of community within the staff and students.
Riverside High School is an incredible school with lots of teachers and authority figures who truly care about your well being and future. Although school may not always be fun, this school is very welcoming and makes the best of things. Their theatre department is lacking but the STEM department is great!
