Diverse. Tuition-Free. College Prep.

Riverside High School is a tuition-free, college-preparatory, public charter high school. We are open to any student in the state of Indiana and serve a diverse student population. Riverside offers a rich environment designed to prepare students for college and expose them to a wide variety of thoughts and perspectives.

Riverside High School is recognized for academic excellence. We have high expectations for our students. Our teachers and staff go above and beyond to help students succeed. With small class sizes, individualized attention, and a nurturing environment, Riverside prepares all students for success in college and in life.

As a college-preparatory school, our students must take four years of Latin plus the four traditional core subjects (English, math, science, and social studies). In addition to core classes, students may take two electives each semester. We also offer numerous college-level courses, including Advanced Placement (AP) courses.

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 by the Indiana Department of Education and is ranked in the top 2 percent of schools nationwide by U.S. News and World Report. Last year, Riverside students outperformed the national average for growth by 33 percent in reading and more than 50 percent in mathematics on standardized assessments. After just one year, Riverside is well on its way to reaching the same standard of excellence.
