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 Preparatory gives a wonderful and safe learninf environment. It sets students up for success by preparing the students for life after high school. I have attended Riverside Preparatory since 6th grade. There has never been a moment where i have not felt safe in the environment. The rules are strict and some students disagree with certain restrictions. A common complaint comes with the strict dress code. Besides the dress code, everything about the school is excellent.
I have attended Riverside Prep since the 7th grade until 12th grade. It is one of the safest schools in the High desert, with high standards in education. They have strict rules on dress code, behavior, and attendance which evolves around Saturday school, behavior and attendance contracts. Overall this is a great school and anyone can enroll by taking an math and English exam in the enrollment center.
