Diverse. Tuition-Free. College Prep.

Offering a world-class, classical, liberal arts curriculum in the heart of Indianapolis, Riverside High School is creating a new standard for excellence in public education.

Riverside High School is a member of the Indianapolis Classical Schools network and the second campus of award-winning Herron High School. Riverside is a tuition-free, intentionally-diverse, public charter high school located on the near northwest side of downtown Indianapolis. It is founded on the belief that a classical, liberal arts education is the best preparation for a future life of leadership and service. Riverside currently serves 140 freshman students in a temporary location but will grow for next school year to serve freshman and sophomore students at its permanent home in the historic Heslar Naval Armory.
