New to SC new to Greer new to Greenville county relocated from a very diverse Atlanta GA. First two days of school for a sophomore and senior. Faculty and staff have been very informative and helpful. Students well it's High School but....diverse it's not and it shows. Our children are coming from Gifted/High Achiever Programs. Oh and our children are White just not the mainstream they are artistic creative musically inclined don't play golf or lacrosse look different than most. I fully realize it's very early but to a teenager it's now and forever. I'll post again related to what they take away education preparation for college. Very concerned about my choice to relocate our family..

We are moving back home from GA just so that our boys can graduate from RHS! As parents we love the school teachers and staff. Our sons love the school just as much if not more.
Very competitive school; the YIG program and speech and debate is great and the teachers are academically challenging; overall it is a great school.
Riverside High School is VERY difficult! It is by far the most difficult school in the county. Most of the teachers are very good at what they do. They all have different teaching styles but for the most part they are all well above the average teacher. This school has a reputation of being such a great school. I dont know how to define great but its forsure a totally academic driven style school "Work first play later" should be our school motto.
We had hoped to find an equivalent school outside the Riverside district because it is closed to students asking special admission from outside it's attendance area. People get a lot more for their houses within the district simply because of the schools and we could have found a dream home for half the price. Our daughter attended Riverside while we lived locally and looked for permanent digs. She came from a very progressive IB school and refuses to consider any alternatives here in the Greenville area. As a serious academic I have to trust her judgment. All my interactions with the staff have been positive and there is a genuine sense of compassion for kids with issues. This is the school you want your kid in if they are a serious student otherwise one of the other schools will suffice. Eastside has leadership issues. If these were addressed the school would no doubt be on par with Riverside.
We are new to the area/state this year. I had much hesitation when I knew we were moving to SC because their schools have such a bad reputation. I have to say that we are pleasantly suprised! We are very pleased with Riverside schools - both elementary and the high school. Great teachers touch curriculum lots of activities and sports for the kids to participate in great kids great involved families. Very happy with this school system.
its a great school....#1!!! great teachers and students.. best in south carolina... believe me...couse i go there =)
