Success in school is a combination of commitment, interest, a sense of responsibility, and hard work. Riverside Regional High School makes every attempt to offer a varied and complete program for all students, however, the vital ingredients for success are a positive attitude, willingness to work, and sense of co-operation that the student brings to school each day. It is important for students to attend classes daily, complete assignments on time, participate in class, and try to go beyond the minimum expectations. Our school believes that all students can experience success if there is a willingness to try.


Homework and Assignment Policy

  • Students are expected to complete all assigned work by the due date;

  • Students must work regularly to ensure their success;

  • It is the student's responsibility to find out what work was missed during their absence from class.

  • Parents are encouraged to verify their child’s agenda daily and stay up-to-date on what is going on at school.



Using another writer's words or images and signing your own name is unacceptable. This includes copying text or images from the Internet, books, magazines, or any other media source. Students caught plagiarizing or cheating will receive a mark of zero unless the teacher authorizes the student to redo the work. Parents will also be informed.



Remediation is help offered to students having trouble with the day-to-day material being covered in class.  Remedial sessions occur regularly in the schedule whereas others are planned according to students’ needs.  Students may be requested to attend based on assignment completion and academic results.  Students are responsible for being present when necessary.
