"Riverside is a place where Christian teachers are able to share life and expertise. Students are given opportunities through academics, sports, social activities, and discipleship to deepen their Jesus informed worldview. And the community as a whole is able to express the love of Christ in practical ways."

What I appreciate about RCS: The support community of teachers, staff, and administration prayerfully, and with authenticity, lead, instruct, and compel students toward inquiry, integrity, citizenship, and truth.

“I love that I can pray freely with my students. I love that the administration works closely with the teachers, staff, and students. I love that the school is small enough for everyone to know each other, which allows us to support each other in trials/praises of our lives.”

“Riverside Christian School is committed to the teaching of God’s truth, as well as the application of truth to everyday life. Students are regularly challenged to see all of life as the classroom in which they live out the truths they have been taught.”

“RCS is the best place to teach science in Yakima. We have a huge amount of biodiversity on campus—from wetlands to the pond to arid areas. I frequently see migratory birds and we are involved in long-term research in the pond. Additionally, we are within a few minutes of native shrub steppe habitat and the Yakima River. The students are engaging and I enjoy my colleagues and administration.”
