Parent Liz Schoeneberger's story

Our experience has been nothing short of tremendous at Riverside High School. Strong academics and wonderfully caring and supportive faculty and staff are among some of the incredible experiences. We were blessed to have Mr. Key as the principal while our oldest attended Riverside and he could make every student feel like he was the most important person in that school every day, because they were to him.

Our oldest son went through the engineering program at Riverside and truly loved it. The classes, experiences outside the class and of course the teachers were exceptional. They all helped him decide a path after High School that would work for him. (He is currently in a transfer program at a local community college and will transfer to NC State in 2 years.) He developed strong mentoring relationships with teachers and strong friendships that I know will last him a lifetime. He goes back to Riverside often to check in with his teachers. Our youngest has now started the Project Lead the Way Program in the Engineering program at Riverside. He is very excited about the opportunities presented to him so far. He has transitioned very smoothly and successfully from Middle School. We are excited and encouraged by the Engineering Department as well as the ROTC program and the rest of the school. We just can’t say enough great things about Riverside. An Exceptional School in Durham!!
