Message From The Principal

Welcome to Riverside Intermediate School! The Riverside staff believes that all students should be provided with high academic and behavioral standards, and we are committed to the pursuit of excellence for all students. Our staff is professionally skilled and personally committed to meeting the needs of every student. Our teachers work diligently to create a learning environment that is responsive to the differences in our students’ academic levels, interests, and learning styles. We provide a safe, positive, and supportive school experience so that all students feel valued and encouraged to achieve their personal best.

At Riverside Intermediate School we support our students’ educational journeys by fostering their development of “growth mindsets.” Rather than believing that talent or intelligence is fixed, we believe that regardless of their backgrounds, students can grow their talents and intelligence. All students can develop skills like perseverance, resourcefulness, responsibility, and empathy - qualities that matter wherever their personal journeys take them. We ultimately desire for students to develop into quality people who create meaningful lives for themselves and make a difference in the lives of others.

Riverside will house approximately 560 fifth and sixth grade students.  Within the walls of Riverside is Innovation Academy which engages students in project-based learning.  We are proud that we offer students a choice for learning.  All students are held to high standards in regards to the Riverside Way - Respectful, Responsible, and Ready to Learn.
