Riverside HS Counseling  

  Hello and welcome to the Riverside High School Counseling Center!

Supporting students is our top priority! This covers a broad range of topics and may include personal matters, achieving academic success, planning for future high school coursework, job or scholarship searches and applications, and planning for life after high school. Our goal is to provide students a space to learn about themselves and to be able to manage or resolve challenging situations and improve their circumstances. 

The transition into young adulthood is exciting and sometimes intimidating. We are here to help students wherever they may be in their personal journey.

If you are a college/university admissions advisor, please scroll to the bottom of this website for our school profile information. Thank you for considering Riverside High School students for your institution.
