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.

The Riverside High School play, My Fair Redneck (I’m as curious as you are) will begin at 7:00 P.M. tomorrow night (Friday, May 10) and Saturday at the same time.

Next Wednesday will be our last late start for the school year. Oh, and it’s my wife’s birthday that day. Dang! Oh and Mother’s Day is Sunday. Man!

The following are announcements from Ms. Mileke and then from the Senior Allnighter parents:

Our 2019 Senior Signing Day assembly will be on May 16th beginning at 1:55pm in the RHS gymnasium. Come and help us recognize and celebrate the seniors who have committed to an apprenticeship, military or college after graduation.

Senior Parents: We really need your help to pull off a great night of fun for our seniors at the Senior All-Nighter! We will be meeting in the RHS Library on Wednesday, May 15th, at 6 pm to map out the details. Deal cards at the Casino table, assist with prizes, or just hang out and help supervise as we celebrate this important milestone for our seniors. See you on the 15th!

Warm regards,

John McCoy
