    "Riverside is a wonderful high school with many offerings that allow for the development of the whole child. From academic and service clubs, chorus, dance, band and athletics a student has many options for finding their identity. The school culture sets an expectation of excellence which the principal champions. It is a large school, but the majority of students feel connected to the school and are proud to be a RHS Pirate."

    "I think Riverside stands as a terrific school due to these key elements: 1) Amazing principal that expects amazing results and uses discipline effectively while allowing the students space to be themselves and interact with him and the teachers as young adults 2) Amazing parent participation: Riverside has parents who are excellent boosters for athletics, morale, decision-making, and appreciation of the teachers and the administrators 3) Of course, amazing students and teachers! -- the students go the extra mile to participate in higher-level academics/competitions, sports as players and fans, and artistic performances that win awards and the teachers support the students and provide extra tutoring/mentoring opportunities and take on extra responsibilities that they don't get paid any extra for doing. Since the student enrollment is one of the largest at 1980, the teachers are doing A LOT extra! ROLL PIRATES ROLL!"

    "Jim Key is a wonderful principal. He and the rest of the staff do a great job of communicating with parents. The faculty is dedicated to helping all students succeed and they go beyond the call of duty to help make that possible. The expectations are high for all students. Parent involvement is also a key factor in Riverside's success. Riverside parents are a very involved and engaging group. There are ample opportunities to be involved in your students education. The students are also a great group. These kids want to learn and are fired up about learning and being a part of Riverside's success. There are many varieties of classes, lots of AP choices and unique offerings. Riverside is a great school!"

    "I went to Riverside High School and graduated in 2008. I love everything about Riverside. The students, faculty, staff, and administrators were all amazing, and wonderful at helping you succeed and honestly cared about your education. The Academics and Athletics were top notch! I am in college and I really miss this school."

    "My son came from a small private school and thus I was very concerned about his transitioning to a school this size. Also, when you hear about gangs and violence in schools today it makes you cringe to drop your child off at school. This said, I am extremely pleased with the commitment from the Principal, Mr. Kee, to keep our children safe! Additionally, his teachers have gone above and beyond to help my son and have kept in close contact with me concerning his progress. Academic programs are fantastic. There is a lot of community involvement in the school even from adults whose children have graduated and moved forward. Of course there are problems! With a school this size you always have some -- however they are well managed. I couldn't be more happy with Riverside."
