Riverview IB Excellence & Equity Initiative
The mission of the E2 Initiative seeks to promote the inclusion and success of underrepresented students in the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program (IBDP) and International Baccalaureate Career Program (IBCP). E2 strives to remove barriers and create pathways to empower a more diverse representation of students to graduate with the skills and tools needed for post-secondary education and lifelong learning. At Riverview, the E2 Initiative advocates for economically and socially disadvantaged students to encourage them to become world-class learners with an arsenal of academic and personal skills. E2 provides each student that takes part in the program with a case manager that advises, mentors, and guides them through the IB program and the college application process. The fcase managers meet with students on and off-campus; assist them with registering and preparing for the SAT/ACT, guide them through the college essay and application process, and serve as an advocate for these incredible students. Finally, the Last Mile Fund is a resource available to help remove barriers for these students and their families to make the first-year transition to college.
R.E.A.C.H. – Riverview’s Efforts to Assist Our Children at Home
REACH was created to help RHS students who may fall short on their academic potential due to their basic needs not being met, including clothes, shoes, proper nutrition and funds for required school activities. The REACH program has a food pantry, clothes closet and a benevolent fund to help meet these deficiencies quickly, better ensuring academic success. 100% of this is funded by the RHS Foundation.
CYESIS – Parenting Students Program
Cyesis is a dropout prevention program within RHS. The goal is to increase the likelihood that pregnant and parenting students will earn a high school diploma. Child care is vital to retaining young parents in school and the Cyesis Program provides care for infants and toddlers. The focus is always on quality and early intervention to improve young lives. We do not fund this (the program itself is funded by the district), however, we do provide support to the program in various ways.
RIVERVIEW RAMp it Up – Riverview Academic Mentoring Program
RAMp identifies incoming freshmen who are in need of academic assistance to assure that they can succeed at Riverview and graduate as productive citizens and succeed in life. It is critical that we meet this need to serve these students with an extra measure of help. 100% of this is funded by the RHS Foundation.
Riverview High School Foundation
Our mission is to provide funds for the enhancement of education at Riverview High School when there are no other funding sources available.
