Riverside High School Reviews

I graduated last year from there and I enjoyed my years there, especially senior year. First of all, the teachers, counselors and the rest of the Riverside team are wonderful and very caring people. They truly look for the best for you. They are probably the best thing Riverside has. There are plenty engineering programs and clubs. The big problem is the students. Some students can be rude, fight, argue with teachers. They make learning hard sometimes and because of them, Riverside is unfortunately associated with troublesome teens.

Riverside, known for wide diversity and engineering program is a good school that offers extraordinary opportunities, such as taking college level classes and earning college credits, which serve great benefits for students starting college, by saving a good amount of money. This school also offers volunteer services and donates for cancer awareness month, children in starvation, including blood donation. It is an active school changing the lives of many.
Needs a lot of improvement. Then again, most of the time it isn't the district or faculty that is causing this school to be somewhat bad, it's the students themselves. Be wary of that.
