HIGH SCHOOL

Riverside High School students thrive in an academically rigorous, supportive environment where they have the freedom to explore their academic and extracurricular interests on a deep level.

Beginning in ninth grade, students may choose from regular and a variety of honors of core courses such as English, Math, Science, Social Studies, and Physical Education. Riverside has an assortment of electives in order to meet the needs and desires of each individual student. These vary from Art, Band, Theatre, Spanish, French, Keyboarding, IBCA, Yearbook, and Journalism. Once the student becomes a Sophomore, they will be given the opportunity to take their choice of nine different Dual Enrollment Classes (27 hours worth).

As students progress through to the twelfth grade, they have increasing opportunities to create a schedule that best matches their ability and interests with room to explore new courses and activities.

Academics are complemented by clubs such as Senior Beta, Student Council, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, RA Ovations, and Athletics, with many students going on to pursue extracurricular, artistic, and athletic interests at the collegiate level.
