As Spring Break quickly approaches we find ourselves three quarters of the way through the school year. With nine weeks remaining I want to remind everyone to do their best in all classes and remember that fourth quarter grades become part of your permanent transcript. Juniors will be taking the state mandated Smarter Balance Assessments in April and Seniors will be presenting their Senior Projects in May. The DECA Club will be sponsoring a Career Challenge Day on March 18, with over 15 guest speakers from industry coming to campus and discussing their career fields with our students. Spring sports are in full swing and drama, music and Cadet Corps are all preparing for big productions and competitions. If you get a chance to attend any of the many events happening, please enjoy yourself and continue to support our students in a positive and sportsman like manner. Be sure to check the calendar of events and the different links on the home page, as we have now been given access to update these pages ourselves. Hopefully this will bring about a more timely and open communication for everyone.
JoAnn Baeten – Principal
SPORTS: Winter sports ended with all four of our teams in the CIF Playoffs. Boys basketball and boys and girls soccer all advanced to the second round, while girls basketball was defeated in the first round. Congratulations to all of these teams, we are very proud of you. Boys baseball, girls softball, golf and track and field have started their spring seasons. Both the baseball and softball teams have started off strong with victories under the belts, and track and field will be hosting all track meets for the CVL at our facility throughout the season. Golf will tee it up for the first time on March 24. We wish all our teams a great season, with hopes of CIF playoffs for all. Cheer will hold try-outs on March 13, with the team being announced after spring break.
CADET CORPS: The Cadet’s continue to shine with several of the drill teams qualifying for the state level competition in April in Los Alamitos. This was a Virtual Drill Competition, and the following groups qualified: Squad Drill Team, Color Guard and Armed Platoon Drill Team. On February 28, at the High Desert Competition we had additional groups and individuals bring home trophies, they were: First Place – Squad Drill Team, First Place – Armed Squad Drill Team, Second Place – Color Guard, Second Place – Individual Drill Down C/SGT Karla Mirafuentes, Third Place – Individual Drill Down C/SGT Bence Andrasi, and Third Place Armed Individual Drill Down C/CSM Isaac Holtz. Great job cadets.
DRUM LINE: Drum line has performed very well in their first two competitions this season. After moving up a division, the team continues to improve and is looking to a great performance on March 28 at Colony High School. They continue to work toward the semi-finals and finals in April.
PARENT/TEACHER CONFERENCES: Just a reminder that conferences to discuss your students academic progress will be held on March 18 and 19 from 12:30 pm – 3:00 pm. This will mark the end of our third quarter of attendance and report cards will be available at this time.
COFFEE WITH THE PRINCIPAL: Join us for our second meet and greet on Wednesday, April 8 at 8:30 in Room 83. Thank you to the PAC for providing the refreshments, hope to see many of you there.
ACADEMIC AWARDS CEREMONY: Students will be bringing home gold colored flyers on Thursday, March 19, outlining our new protocol for our Honor Roll Assemblies. In an effort to involve more parents and families, we will be moving these awards to the evening and staging the events with families in mind. Please take the time to read over this information as it does have a couple of changes that will effect the way we have traditionally done the assemblies.
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.

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.
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.
Riverside Prep. High School is proud to offer our students access to the California Cadet Corps program. This program is available to all of our high school students and is an elective period during the school day.
Our athletic program stresses the importance of student participation and sportsmanship while learning and performing various skills – along with encouraging students about nutritional needs.
