Riverside STEM Academy
6 Best Public Middle Schools in California
- Riverside Unified School District, CA
Senior: 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.

Freshman: Niche allows reviews to only be less than 1000 characters, so I'll try to summarize everything.
Academics/Teachers/Resource: MWAH! The teachers are all qualified and passionate about their respective subjects (many also have PhD's). There are many resources within the school that assist students' academic performance if they wish, such as the peer tutoring program, office hours, or simply having a classmate help you out.
Clubs: A surprisingly wide variety of clubs. The largest (and arguably best) clubs consist of Speech & Debate, Mock Trial, and DECA.
Sports: PE only offers the mainstream sports, such as soccer, basketball, and football.
Diversity: Nonexistent. All Asians.
Food: Most of the students hate it.
School Culture: Many of the students are talented and smart, but many of them at the same time are also conceited and condescending, which degrades the school environment by a considerable amount.
