Win Every Day!


RPHS Silver Knights congratulations on a solid first quarter! You have done an excellent job of immersing yourselves in the school culture and the many projects that each of your classes are doing. I can tell that for some of you at the 9th grade level it has been a slow and arduous journey. I am excited to see that many of you have arrived and are moving forward with great success. The rest of you please know that we will still be here when you arrive.

I am excited as we really immerse ourselves in the project season here in the next quarter. The 9th grade Heritage project is well underway and Frankenstein is getting started as well! The Juniors and Seniors are also starting projects that are going to cause them to ask some very deep and poignant questions about themselves and the world around them. I love this part of the journey!

We have a couple of great opportunities to attend football games during the break! Please come out and SUPPORT our teams as they strive to their winning goals! I am very disappointed that screaming and yelling of obscenities and deragotory comments is fast becoming a trend in poor sportsmanship amongst our Silver Knight fans. If you cannot come to the game and be supportive in the face of all the adversity our teams may encounter, I would ask you not to attend at all. Fans that are abusive toward coaches and students will be asked to leave the game and the campus. Our student athletes work very hard all week to prepare for games. Our coaches give an abundance of time to your children away from their families and jobs. They care about or kids and will always do what is necessary to teach proper techniques, strategies, and decorum to them. Please strive to support your students and our coaches at all times where student athletes are concerned. If you have an issue with a coach please schedule an appointment with the Athletic Director and the coach to address it. Talking about it in front of your student athlete only serves to set them up to fail. Our kids are important to us and we want you as their parents to be there for them at every turn. I know you know how to conduct yourselves appropriately. Please be the model your student needs to follow. We will do the same.

Naviance is in full swing and I hope that everyone is using it one at least a weekly basis. It is important that you investigate all the wonderful features that Naviance has for you from interest inventories all the way to direct college communication. We are using the new E-Doc system within Naviance in order to enhance the direct communication the school ahs for each of with the college and university systems. This means that we can directly upload our electronic files to specific colleges and universities eliminating the middleman. Naviance is a great tool for each of you as we transition from college to career.

Congratulations all of our athletic teams for the great representation they give to our school. I appreciate the stalwart effort each student athlete puts in on behalf of the school. I know that we love the sports that we play but the reality is that if your not out there putting it on the line then you’re not getting written up in the sports pages. These folks get evaluated on their effort week in and week out and if things aren’t going their way it can be lonely and frustrating. Let’s all try to say “Good Job!” to our athletes, cheer, and band each week for the great effort they give to our school. I know that I am very proud of all of them! Keep up the great work Silver Knights!

I wish you all a refreshing week off. I hope that you get a much-deserved rest and that you are ready to really hit the books hard when we return. We have some home football games during the break so maybe we will see you then.

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.
