    I was amazed at the quality of education that Riverside High School offers its students! They are genuine and care about about their kids (our kids!) not only as students but as 'people'. I feel that other schools in the PUSD could learn a lot from the staff on how to treat and teach children. It would definitely make for a better Pittsburg and a better future for our children!
