Welcome to Riverside High School
Welcome to Riverside High School.
It’s not the brick and mortar that makes Riverside High School the best in the state. It’s the students, staff, and community working together that makes Riverside what it is.

Each year I look forward to outstanding students who fill our hallways with fun and laughter. I get excited when I see their accomplishments as they fill our classrooms with academic achievements and the success that can be felt when they meet the expectations of a rigorous curriculum taught by capable teachers and support staff.

Outstanding schools are governed by a few good rules with members of the school and community working together to educate students. We offer an outstanding, comprehensive academic program with multiple Advanced Placement courses along with amazing Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) courses. We offer courses that allow students access to college credit without ever leaving our campus. We also offer an extra-curricular program with a wide variety of athletics and activities that are designed to enhance the school experience for everybody.

Please join us, be involved, and help us make the best educational experience the state of Washington has to offer.

Principal's Weekly Message
March 15, 2018

Tomorrow we will have a spring sports assembly at 10:20 in the Gym.

Tuesday, March 20, we will have an Evacuation and re-unification drill. We will practice leaving the building and going to a designated place on the football field where we will be practice being organized in our ability to reunify students to their families should we ever have to do so.
