Tuition-Free. Award-Winning. College Prep.

Riverside High School is a tuition-free, public charter school open to any student in the state of Indiana. We serve a diverse socio-economic, racial and academically-skilled population. Drawing from 70 different middle schools across Central Indiana, Riverside offers a rich environment designed to expose students to a wide variety of thoughts and perspectives.

Riverside High School is recognized for academic excellence. We have high expectations for our students and multiple structures in place to help students meet those expectations. With small class sizes, individualized attention, and a nurturing environment, our culture supports rigorous academics and provides all students with the tools for success.

As a college-preparatory school, our students are required to take four years of English, Latin, mathematics, science, and social studies. In addition to core classes, students may take two elective classes each semester. We offer a rich diversity of college-level courses, including Advanced Placement (AP) courses, across all disciplines.

Riverside High School is on track to join its sister school, Herron High School, as one of the top public high schools in the country. Herron High School has been recognized as an “A” school and “Four Star School” by the Indiana Department of Education and ranks in the top 2 percent of schools nationwide in rankings by U.S. News and World Report. Riverside offers the same proven model and will achieve the same standard of excellence as it grows.
