FINAL EXAM SCHEDULE – STUDENT ATTENDANCE IS MANDATORY UNTIL JUNE 2.  The High School does take final exams and they count as part of the students final academic grade in a class.  Second semester grades are part of a students official transcript and count towards high school graduation credits, college and employment review and the calculation of a students GPA.  There will be no Independent Study after May 13, and students may not be on Independent Study from May 16-June 2.  The districts academic calendar is available on both the district web-site and our site for your planning.  Next years 2016-2017 school calendar is also available.  Students grades 9-11 will be taking their exams as follows:

Friday, May 27 – period 7 classes grades 9-11

Tuesday, May 31 – periods 1, 3, 5 classes grades 9-11

Wednesday, June 1 – periods 2, 4, 6 classes grades 9-11

Seniors will have a separate final exam schedule to accommodate Senior Week activities and Graduation. Please see the Senior Events tab on the web site for more information and a calendar of senior events.

Testing continues throughout the first of the month for both Junior SBAC and AP Exams.  Please continue to encourage your students to do their best on these important exams.  Make sure they are getting plenty of rest and are eating a good breakfast to fuel their minds and bodies.

The counseling department is working on next years course offerings and student schedules.  Student request and staff availability are two key components we look at when building our schedule.  We will continue to attempt to honor the request of our students whenever possible.  However, we may not offer a course or have as many sections of a course depending on the number of request and the number of sections of a particular course.  As a small school we may not have the numerous offerings that a large comprehensive school may have, but we will continue to accommodate as many request as we possibly can to make for a rigorous and educationally sound experience for all.

Finally, May 2-6 is Teacher Appreciation Week.  Take a moment to thank a teacher for all that they do for our students and school community.  I know I am fortunate to work with an incredible staff of professionals who work tirelessly to bring a quality education to our students.  So, thank you to the RPHS staff for all that they do.

our mission

Our Mission

Our school is committed to the growth and positive development of students through an experiential learning approach that strives to engage the student, enlighten the mind and empower the future.

Our mission is to empower every student to be a successful learner. We want our students to be the “Best” without reservation or qualified restrictions. We seek to promote a diverse, challenging and supportive environment of firmly grounded, tolerant, respectful, accountable and academically motivated students.


Fully Accredited WASC School

WASC stands for the Western Association of Schools and Colleges. It is the accrediting body for the western states, including California. Their job is to visit schools and determine whether or not the school is doing an adequate job educating All students as well as whether the school meets its own definition of who it claims to be. The WASC process includes a self-study to identify who we are, what we are doing, and how we are doing it.

Becoming WASC accredited means that credits, grades, and courses taken at Riverside Prep will be transferable to other high schools and will be looked at by colleges as a fully accredited and reputable high school. Many colleges and universities will not accept students from non-accredited schools, or if they do, often students are held to higher test score requirements. Our interest is giving the students at our school the best education possible as well as enabling them to pursue whatever course they choose in the future.

Riverside Preparatory School has a limited number of spaces available for students.  A lottery is conducted to determine the order in which an invitation to attend will be extended when spaces are available which are less than the number of students on the waiting list for any given grade level.  Kindergarten students for each year are accepted on a “first come” basis until classes are full.  The School encourages parents to register for Kindergarten as early as possible.  Some parents are registering their children for kindergarten as early as five years in advance!
