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
May 17, 2018

As of today, we only have seven days of classes left for seniors and 14 days left for everybody else.

Next week we will have our Senior Signing assembly on Thursday, May 24th at 8:45 A.M. in the gymnasium. Of course parents and family are invited to attend. This will be an upbeat assembly intended to celebrate the beginning of new opportunities for our seniors as they begin the transition from high school to their college/career choices in the future. Many colleges and universities will be here as well as the branches of the military.

This same evening, May 24th, will be our RamFest community celebration here at the high school. Chattaroy Elementary will be moving their annual carnival up the hill to the high school and we will combine that with many activities including an out-door movie on the Memorial Field (the grassy field just east of the stadium) at dusk. The movie will be the Disney sensation, Moana.

Warm regards,

John McCoy
