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
December 7, 2017

Seventy six years ago today, the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor, thrusting us into the Second World War. Our flags fly at half-staff today in honor of the more than 3,000 individuals who lost their lives that day. I have been to Pearl Harbor and I attended the memorial there. I felt like I was on sacred ground as I read the names of all those who served and lost their lives there. I, along with you, will always be grateful for a generation of mostly very young men and women of great character who recognized the evil that existed and who threatened to destroy all that we hold dear as citizens of these United States of America. How grateful we should be that so many of that generation actually stood up and defeated that evil.

All students will receive a mid-quarter progress report today, so ask your child to show you their progress reports when they return home from school.

Best wishes,

John McCoy
