Riverside High School is diverse-by-design and celebrates diversity among its students in many forms. We strive to maintain a safe environment where students are free to be themselves. Our diverse student populations promotes friendships among students from different backgrounds and uniquely prepares students for success in a global society.

Our intentional diversity has created a unique environment that allows students to thrive as scholars and as individuals. We will follow in Herron High School’s model, which has produced powerful testimonials from Herron High School students:


“Attending HHS has exposed me to all sorts of different people and cultures. I know more about what is going on in the world. Meeting people who are completely different than me has helped me find out who I really am, and to learn what is unique about me.”


“HHS has changed my outlook on the world. It has taught me that different types of people can learn together and be friends. My classmates are all really different. I am friends with really poor kids and with kids from the suburbs, and there’s lots of culture at Herron. I am so lucky to be here.”


“This school is a good fit for me because of the diversity. I actually feel I can be myself and feel accepted due to the many different backgrounds of my classmates. The diversity and different types of people I have met has given me a richer outlook. HHS not only challenges my mind, it challenges my heart.”
