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 325 freshmen, sophomores and juniors at its new permanent location in the historic former Heslar Naval Armory. Beginning in 2020-21, we will increase our enrollment to 450 students in grades 9-12.
Riverside High School is quickly becoming one of Indianapolis’ best public high schools. Our rigorous curriculum prepares students to be world-class citizens and equips them for success in college and the workforce. Our scholars engage in an urban environment and play an important role in strengthening their community and city as a whole.
A world-class city needs world-class public high schools. We’re making that idea a reality.
