This is an excellent school with many opportunities to excell. The Ayers Foundation is making Decatur County students make their college dreams be realities.

I am a former graduate of Riverside High School and have many wonderful memories. I feel that Riverside is a good school.

I really think riverside is a great school. The theachers are great and they are not just teachers but friends also. They care about their students and want them to learn and stay out of trouble and they do their best to try and keep this going on. I was a student there. I just got my diploma there in 2003. I would also love for my kid to go there when she's old enough. The kids there are also very welcome to new students. Take it from me. I was new there and I had more friends the I needed.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Tennessee used the Gateway/End-of-Course (EOC) exams to test high school students in language arts, math, science, and social studies upon completion of relevant courses. Students must pass the algebra I, English II, and biology I tests, called the Gateway exams, in order to graduate. The Gateway/EOC exams are standards-based tests that measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of Tennessee. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.
