Win Every Day!
This week is National Suicide Prevention Week at RPHS. We have been having a number of events on campus this week to bring awareness to this very tragic issue. Students have been given wrist bands with our slogan this month, ” It’s okay to ask for help!” They have been given pencils and we have had them sign a pledge banner just to say that they will ask for help if they need it. We have had our counselors, school psychologists, clinical support, and student supports services here with us all week. We have a few more events planned for students and we are asking that they all wear yellow on Friday in support of suicide prevention.

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.
The Enrollment Center is located at 19121 Third St. in Oro Grande, CA.
For more information please call (760) 843-5556.
Hours: Monday – Friday 9:00 AM – 3:00 PM
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!
The main goal of the Riverside Preparatory Music Department is to give each student a positive experience with music. This includes the ability to demonstrate appropriate fundamentals, concepts, and techniques needed to perform successfully.
