The good things:
It is a very clean school, and has a great administration. The facilities here are indeed excellent. I am lucky to have teachers ranging from good to great from my freshman to senior year. However this year, I came across friends who complained about some bad teachers (it is believable).

I feel that it is VERY IMPORTANT to talk about the downsides of this school:
The school culture needs a lot of work. As a student, making friends here is much harder than in other schools. I know people who reported being more welcomed after moving to another school in the district. I also found newly arrived students who reported wanting to go back to their old school.

Overall, the students here are incredibly cliquey and stuck-up. Those of you who are feeling lonely and excluded, please do not lose hope! There will always be nice folks wherever you go. I promise.

My high school experience at Riverside High has been fantastic! I love the enthusiasm of the teachers, administrators, and parents. Riverside offers a quality education, and prepares students for their next steps in life. I think our facilities are second to none. I, for instance, have been spoiled by our softball complex. I feel lucky and blessed to have been able to attend Riverside High school.
As a member of Riverside High Schools first graduating class, I had the privilege of watching the school grow from the ground up. The staff and teacher were excellent at assisting us ,the students, in our transition from our former high school into to this schools system. They took time to provided an array a of resources for us especially as we grew closer to graduation and college. They brought in multiple college recruiter and provided an array of seminars in order to better inform us on the our options after graduation. While in the classrooms the teachers worked to provide with an effective and rigorous course load. Currently as a college student i can truly thank Riverside high school for this as it has aided me tremulously in finding success within my current college courses. Overall I had more than a pleasant experience attending this high school and would recommend any parent coming to the Loudoun County area to look into this school.
