About

Riverside is known throughout the region as the Advanced Placement school. RUHS offers more Honors and AP courses than any other area high school. We offer students a safe, orderly environment with a focus on preparing students to successfully transition to college. More than 85% of graduates enter college each year. With a state-of-the-art lab for our Project Lead the Way engineering and biomedical programs, students learn from hands-on experiences while earning college credits. With close proximity to UW-Milwaukee, students may take college courses on the UWM campus. RUHS is also known for its award-winning music, bilingual and special education programs. RUHS, 'the school that has it all,' features outstanding athletic teams, musicals, after-school activities and student leadership. Parents are welcomed as partners in the teaching and learning process. Our students, upon graduation, are well-prepared to become life-long learners and productive citizens in a global community.

This is a high school with entrance requirements and entry is granted through the early admissions process. Contact the school or visit our high school early admissions page for more information about that process.
