May 2015

With just five weeks remaining in the school year, the calendar is full of events and activities.  Juniors have finished their state SBAC testing and we appreciate the hard work they put in during the last weeks of April.  We will begin two weeks of Advanced Placement (AP) exams on May 5, with the last exam on May 14.  Please check the calendar and with your individual student for the dates of their specific exam.  

As the weather warms up, please make sure your student(s) are still within the RPHS dress code guidelines.  These can be found in the student handbook online.  Be sure that you are reminding them to drink plenty of water and to stay hydrated.  We also ask that you check their bags and backpacks for items such as water balloons and squirt guns, as we see an increase in these items as the temperatures rise.  Finally, please take note that students will not be allowed to bring bags, backpacks or large purses during final exam week beginning on June 1, 2015.  Monday, June 1 is a regular full day, with Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday are minimum days. The last day of school is Thursday, June 4, 2015.

On May 12, 2015 from 6:00-7:30 pm we will hold our first PROJECT SILVER KNIGHT as an open house and introduction to RPHS for incoming freshmen and their parents.  There will be guided tours of the high school campus, classroom visits, and question and answer sessions with staff members and administration.  This is open to the public, so come on down and see what we are all about.  Click on the flyer on the banner at the top of the page for more information.

Senior parents are reminded to look at the Senior Information Page under the parent tab for important dates, times and requirements for upcoming senior activities.  Graduation ticket pre-sale will begin on Monday, May 11, 2015.  Seniors will be allotted six (6) complimentary tickets and any additional tickets needed can be purchased for $5.00 each.  Graduation will be at Maverick Stadium on Thursday, June 4, 2015 at 7:00 pm.  Gates will open at 6:00 pm and all attendees age 4 and older must have a ticket.

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.

Enrollment Availability

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!
