Riverside is known for its challenging, rigorous, yet rewarding academic environment. Our goal is for every student to be successful both academically and socially in order to be independent contributors to society after graduation. The Mac and Sue McLendon Student Success Center is designed to meet the individual needs of students with recognized learning issues by providing academic, organizational, and motivational support. Students who struggle academically can access the learning center either through a study hall or a resource class. The learning specialist, in collaboration with the learning support specialist, oversees the accommodations for each student, monitors their grades and academic status, assists students in developing soft and executive skills, works with academic teachers to keep up with the student's assignments and tests, and maintains consistent quality communication with academic and elective teachers, parents, and students.
