Here's What You Need to Know

Board Decision Update:

  • Our petition is back on the RUSD board docket and is very likely to be approved!
  • We say “very likely” because the RUSD School Board can go either way. So, your presence at the Decision Meeting is imperative!
  • The Board Decision Date is Thursday, August 22, at 5:30 p.m.!


  • We've resolved the facilities issue!
  • The new location will be at Mt. Rubidoux SDA church on Victoria Ave in Riverside.
  • The facility includes ample classrooms and a full-size gymnasium. 
  • The projected first day of class is August 26.

What this means for your family:

  • If your child is a returning REACH scholar, they are already pre-enrolled in our program.
  • If approved, your 7th grader can start at REACH on Monday, August 26. 
  • Stay on our waitlist if you wish to remain part of the REACH community.
  • If you are no longer interested in attending, let us know ASAP. 



The location of a middle school campus is still under negotiations. No plans are final unless the RUSD board approves the school petition to add 7th and 8th grades. 

School Hours

The proposed school hours are 8:15 AM-3:30 PM subject to change slightly based on finalized block schedule.


What to Wear?

Our middle school dress code promotes a safe and respectful learning environment by emphasizing modesty, cleanliness, and professionalism in attire choices. Students are expected to adhere to guidelines that prioritize modesty while minimizing distractions, ensuring a positive and focused atmosphere for academic and social growth. Upon RUSD approval, more information regarding dress code will follow.

Sports Academy

If our petition for 7th and 8th grade is approved, our middle school sports academy will continue its tradition by offering specialized training and development programs for scholars interested in pursuing athletics. The sports programs will include Basketball, Soccer, Track, and Cheer.


If our petition for 7th and 8th grade is approved, some of the electives to be offered will include:

ASB, Art, Choir, Foreign Language, Math Olympics, Music, Student Created Clubs & Other STEAM-Based Additions.

With these electives our sholars will be exposed to a variety of oppurtunities to showcase their talents and develop new interests and abilities.
