The Riverside community is predominantly suburban with a diversity of inner-city and rural populations. The Riverside High School philosophy encompasses these diversities.
Riverside High School's philosophy of education is a belief that the school must share the responsibility of the individual student's development in all areas of his growth: mental, physical, cultural, civic, ethical, emotional, and social. The school must accept this responsibility in order to prepare the student for the rapidly changing social and economic conditions of the future. In addition to this responsibility, the school must contribute to the intrinsic value of the years that the student actually spends in the school so that those years will be of personal worth to the student.
To fulfill its philosophy of education, Riverside sets the educational pace and pattern best suited to the individual student's capacities by guiding the student to accept and to understand the difference in himself and in others and by offering the student various opportunities designed for his mental capacity.
