I've been going to Riverside Preparatory since 7th grade until I graduated in 2014. I had nothing but good experiences from that school. The teachers are close to the students because they're there to help us and wants the best for us. It is a charter school, so you get to meet new friends from different cities that you probably wouldn't have met in different schools. The educational system was great! I really improved in my grades and ended up graduating with a 4.0! Overall this school is great! You can tell the faculty wants to see you succeed, the food is decent, the campus is clean. I wouldn't change anything.

Riverside Prep is a very good school. The teachers always look for ways to help you. The only negative experiences I’ve had is through students, but you’ll get that everywhere. The music program is average because most focus is towards sports. Almost nothing would be done on campus if it wasn’t for our diligent ASB and their advisor. Overall, Riversaid is a very good school.
I liked that the school was focused on college readiness. Although the level of college readiness programs they provide are average, it is better than nothing. I would like to see the school culture change. Many students that attend do not like attending because of the school culture. I think this is because of the students as well as staff, both contribute.
