RMS Receives Highest Ratings on School Report Card
RMS School Report Card

We are extremely proud of our students, faculty and staff here at Riverside Middle Schools as we were one of a very few schools in South Carolina to score the highest possible rating on all three of these assessments.

We could not have achieved this result without our strong home to school connection. At RMS we believe that Great communities make great schools and great schools make great communities. We are privileged to serve such a great community.

We appreciate your help in spreading the word about the great things that are happening at RMS!

Complete RMS school achievement information can be found on the Achievement page.

Tdap Immunization Required for Rising 7th Graders
Parents are reminded that rising seventh graders must have the Tdap vaccination or you must submit an objector’s statement prior to the first day of school, Tuesday, August 19, 2014, for students to attend school.  Parents must provide their child’s school with documentation of the Tdap immunization, a religious exemption, or a medical exemption.  Parents are encouraged to submit document as soon as possible.  If documentation is not provided before the first day of school, the student will not be allowed to start school.  The Tdap vaccine protects against diphtheria, tetanus, and pertussis (whooping cough).  State Law began the requirement for the Tdap vaccination beginning with the 2013-14 school year.
