Riverside Junior/Senior High School Reviews

The teachers were always willing to help students bring out there best potential. I learned everything I would need to get into the college of my dreams. While sometimes the students in the school did not make me feel safe, I knew the teachers and other staff were doing all they could to make us feel at home. Over the course of the four years, I have attended, I have seen a tremendous amount of positive change by the staff and students. The staff has tried to allow students to have fun while learning and get the best out of their education. With this, students attitude towards learning, as well as mine, has become increasingly better. Riverside High School has become a better school each and every year.

The way Riverside prepares you for the future is great. You can earn an associate's from Lakeland Community College by the time you graduate, thanks to the CCP (College Credit Plus) program they offer. Or you can learn a trade at Auburn Career Center. The classes are very good, and the teachers do a very good job in adapting to the students needs while still staying on schedule with their lesson. The school is very supportive of their sports teams and are very supportive of the drama club whose shows never a disappoint. Also both the concert and marching band are conducted very professionally and the students have an enjoyful experience with it. The faculty is very helpful in making sure that your transition from freshman year to senior is smooth so when you graduate theres no stress on getting your transcripts together. My time at Riverside was a great learning experience and introduced me to different ethnicities, beliefs, and provided a safe environment.
I really like the atmosphere of the school. Teachers are always willing to help out whenever you need it, and they really reach out to those who are in need. The arts program at the school, band, choir, theatre, art, is really well known. We have outstanding sports teams and a wonderful student section that is there to cheer them on. What could change is requirements for graduation. I feel that taking at least one year of a foreign language should be required in order to graduate because most colleges look for that in your transcripts, but even if you aren't going to college, it still looks good.
