Superintendent's Welcome Message


Dear Families and Friends,

 On behalf of the district, welcome to Riverview Community Schools! I am very proud to serve our community as the Superintendent of Schools. As an alumnus of Riverview Community Schools and as a parent of RCSD students, I can sincerely attest that there is no better place to educate your child.

 Riverview has a tradition of excellence in academics, athletics, and commitment to the arts. In our district, we strive to develop all aspects of the child in a positive, nurturing environment. This is reflected in our Riverview Pirates Mission Statement – ARRGH! (Academics Responsibility Respect Growth Honor). By focusing on these attributes, we strive to develop the whole individual into a successful, confident young adult who is prepared to pursue the next phases of life.

 The Riverview Community School District provides a rigorous and enriching academic model, stressing the necessary components of the Common Core State Standards, the Michigan Merit Curriculum and the College and Career Readiness Standards. We offer a variety of Advanced Placement courses and Career Technical Education opportunities, as well as an array of wholesome extracurricular activities honed to the interests and skills of our students. Our professional staff is experienced, well-educated and superbly trained, in an effort to ensure that all students reach their destination with capability and confidence.

 Our district is fortunate to have excellent parent and community support for all our academic and extracurricular programs. As a result, Riverview emulates the success that is prevalent when the schools and community collaborate to achieve common goals that make teaching and learning a priority in daily endeavors. This excellence is reflected through the prestigious conferment of District Accreditation by AdvancEd, the nationally recognized organization responsible for standards-setting and governing of the stringent school accreditation process.

 I invite you to explore this website and to see all of the wonderful opportunities Riverview Community Schools has to offer. You will soon understand why our Pirate Pride runs deep!
