Counseling Corner

  Hello and welcome to the Riverside High School Counseling Center!

We are happy to help guide and assist our students in their journey through high school and beyond. We aim to support our students in their academics, their college and career endeavors and with any social-emotional challenges they may face. The transition into young adulthood is exciting and sometimes intimidating. We are here to help wherever our students may be in their personal journey.

Community Service & Volunteer  Opportunities

As a student at RHS you MUST complete 30 hours of community service in order to graduate. These hours need to be independently logged by yourself and turned in to your school counselor before the start of your last quarter senior year.

If you transfer to RHS as a Junior you are required 10 community service hours.

Helping run school related activities outside of the normal school day can be considered community service (i.e. Helping with ASB/Leadership related activities such as the Thanksgiving Dinner).

BENEFITS of GIVING BACK to YOUR community:
  • Help make our community a better place
  • Create a sense of unity and care
  • Can influence your future career choices
  • Good experience you can refer to when trying to get a job or write college admissions essays.

SchoolBlocks offers a unique and powerful personalized search system. A member of the public, searching for "homework" might see an announcement from the school as the first result. However, if the user is logged in, they would see their teacher’s latest homework assignment as the top result.
