We have a student population of about 400 students, grades 7-12, with class sizes averaging about 25. Despite its size, Riverside students enjoy a dynamic staff. Diversity is seen in the variety of clubs, athletic opportunities and some of the best technology available. The administration is great and supportive in creating a safe learning environment. Everything combined; Riverside offers unique opportunities that can’t be found in big schools.

Business Week and Greatschools ranked Riverside Jr/Sr High School #1 Top Academic Performance for Low Socio Economic Area and #1 Most Improved school in Oregon. GO PIRATES!

Boardman is a great place to live, work, play and raise a family.  When asked, most will tell you it is the people who make this town so special.  They are hardworking, forward thinking, energetic and supportive of their children, neighbors and community.  We are proud of the way Boardman residents work together to provide opportunities for all ages – from sports teams to social events, to raising money for a good cause, there is always something to do and a new friend to meet.

Students and Families: Get Ready for the Solar Eclipse!

Image: Eclipse

On Monday, August 21, the continental United States will experience a solar eclipse, which occurs when the Moon passes between the Earth and the Sun, totally or partially blocking the view of the Sun. An eclipse's area of totality means that people viewing the eclipse in that geographic location will be able to experience the entire eclipse, while people outside that area can view a partial eclipse. The path of the total eclipse includes the southern portion of Morrow County, but even viewing the partial eclipse is an exciting scientific event for students and families to experience.

You need a way to safely view the eclipse! People should never look directly at the sun without proper eye protection, as this can result in serious eye injury. Eclipse glasses that are ISO 12312-2 compliant are needed to safely view the eclipse. They can be purchased at some stores or online.

The SAGE Center in Boardman is LIVE streaming the Total Solar Eclipse. In Heppner, there will be transportation available to Morrow-Grant OHV Park.
