This school is highly science, technology, engineering, and mathematics focused, as you can tell by the name. Regardless, students at RSA still find ways to express themselves through art and culture. This school is also known for being smaller than the average high school, which makes it easy to make friends and for students to express themselves freely. Overall, this is an excellent school for people who are looking for more than just the typical high school experience.

The Riverside STEM Academy High School is a public school within the Riverside Unified School District. They use a lottery system for students to be admitted. I was one of the lucky winners. Once you secure a spot, you have to keep up with the challenging academics. The one thing I would change is I would try to expand the school. There is a very long waiting list of students who want to attend this school. It is a competitive school, so a student's rank might be low compared to other schools, but the student will have a great education. Some students leave the school because the academics are too challenging, and other leave because they feel they could have a better GPA at the easier local schools. If you want a superior education, you should attend RSA; it will prepare you to do well in college.
The Riverside STEM Academy is simply amazing. The close-knit community allows you to make friendships with strong bonds. Your peers truly become your family and the teachers are very passionate about what they do! Overall, it is a nice community and I'm glad to have had the opportunity to attend here.
