Riverside High School Ratings & Reviews

November 30, 2017 Submitted by a parent
The mentoring the kids get through the Engineering program is excellent, and the non-Engineering classes and teachers have been good too--which is important, because the Engineering classes make up only an eighth or so of my son's total classes. The block schedule has been a surprisingly good fit for him. He enjoys his classes, is learning a ton, has time for clubs and school activities, has a peer group of really upstanding kids, is able to hone in on his interests, and is generally happy at school. It would be hard to ask for more (from his school anyway; the state and federal governments could do way better to support public education. We're beyond grateful that Riverside continues to have committed, outstanding teachers in the current political climate).

Riverside has been a great high school for our daughter. She is not in the engineering program, but focussing on arts, humanities and also taking science courses. She is now a Junior, and I would rate only 2 of her teachers thus far as less than great. The faculty are highly competent and make themselves available to help students. The music department is excellent, the science teachers top notch, most of the english teachers are highly dedicated. There are many AP courses offered, and most are well taught. While parents could be more involved, there are many who are. This is a school to get behind and believe in, there is amazing potential. Don't let the ABC scores fool you.

Riverside has an excellent PLTW Engineering program that offers students college credit for its courses. It is led by great teachers with real world engineering experience. The overall faculty is excellent, with many AP courses offered and a high passing rate on AP exams. Riverside graduates enroll in Ivy League schools, engineering schools, and many UNC system schools each year. My child has had a great academic, athletic and social experience at Riverside - it is a great school.

A better school than neighbor Northern...but still many drugs and no parent involement. Teachers seem aloof and not connected. I left because we simply dont teach we prepare students for tests..far different than teaching.....

Riverside is a wonderful high school with many offerings that allow for the development of the whole child. From academic and service clubs, chorus, dance, band and athletics a student has many options for finding their identity. The school culture sets an expectation of excellence which the principal champions. It is a large school, but the majority of students feel connected to the school and are proud to be a RHS Pirate.
