We are Riverside, where we believe that every child can be successful!

At our school, we interview every child before registration to be able to create a tailor-made curriculum that can serve every academic and social need. This individualized attention really works: 90% of our graduates go on to colleges or trade schools. Here, we understand the complexities of many students’ home and work lives. We support this reality with flexible school hours that allow students to assist at home or earn income. At Riverside Opportunity Magnet High School, our students experience an understanding, safe, family- like atmosphere to learn and grow.


How to Know Riverside is Uniquely Right for You:

○ You are more comfortable in a smaller educational setting with lots of flexibility and individualized attention and courses.

○ You would like to concentrate on raising reading levels with on-site one on one tutoring and appropriate learning level materials.

○ You are interested in a vocational education in cosmetology or carpentry, or other opportunities for personal development in The Future Project.
