Outstanding Academics

The Riverside Unified School District is known for high academic standards and our students have earned a reputation for success in a wide variety of areas. Riverside Unified is home to state and national History Day winners, state Mock Trial champions, state Envirothon champions, and state Science Fair winners. Four of only 10 students selected for the prestigious 2011 All County Academic Team were from RUSD. And, a significant number of our graduates choose to continue their educations at the college level. In fact, 93 percent of 2010 graduates who participated in an RUSD post-graduation survey (a total of 2,342 students) reported that they were enrolled in college. Eighty-three percent of those students reported that they are enrolled in full-time college programs.
