February Update



Thank you to all the parents who attended our first Coffee with the Principal on February 6, 2015.  It was great to share information, answer questions and discuss my vision and the future for RPHS.  Many participants then made their way over to our Honor Roll Ceremony where they joined over 150 other parents to celebrate the academic achievements of our students.  We will be changing the format for the Honor Roll Ceremony for the Spring semester and the future by holding the ceremony in the evening to allow for more parents and families to attend.  Look for more information on this in future Principal Updates.  I am currently looking at dates with PAC for our next Coffee/Evening with the Principal and will send out a school messenger notification with the information

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.
