Points of Pride

  • Riverside Middle School, located just a few yards from the historic Rio Grande, opened its doors in the 1971 - 1972 school year. The official school mascot is a rebel, showing burnt orange and blue colors. Student success is a priority at our school which makes attending Riverside Middle school fun and exciting. We have been an integral part of our community serving students, parents, and grandparents.

    Riverside Middle School is becoming a TEA T-STEM Designated Middle School that is vertically aligned with Riverside High School. We have partnered with the UTEP Department of Academic Technologies, UTEP College of Engineering-Computer Science, UTEP Office of Research and Sponsored Events, the National Weather Service, Lowes Home Improvement, and the City of El Paso in order to promote college readiness and real world relevance to student learning.

    Riverside Middle School offers 33 student clubs and organizations that support students in the areas of advanced academics, STEM, fine arts, and athletics.

    In 2015 -2016, four Riverside Middle students achieved highest recognition through Duke Tip, a national organization that identifies academically gifted students.

    Riverside Middle School has been awarded a grant in the amount of $20,000 from Project Lead The Way to implement the Gateway Introduction to Computer Science. This grant was made possible by a generous grant from Verizon.

    Riverside Middle School is also the proud recipient of recent grants including $2,500 VEX Robotics Grant, $5,000 Lowe's Toolbox for Education Grant, $1,500 Kellogg's Back to School Grant and $1,000 Math Counts Grant.
