Greetings! I am Rob Huesing, the principal of Riverside Junior High School.

On behalf of our staff, I would like to welcome you to Riverside Junior High School. It is indeed my pleasure to work with, and learn from, our students and staff on a daily basis. I first came to Riverside as the Assistant Principal in 2007, and I stepped into the role of Principal in the fall of 2011.

I find Riverside and its staff the finest around. I tell everyone that we have the best staff, the most supportive parents, and our students are the best. Without the strong partnerships between school and home, our students and our school would not be as successful as we are.

While we are a large school of around 1,000 students, we work to make it smaller by utilizing teaming at both the 7th and 8th grade levels. This allows a core group of teachers to more effectively get to know students, meet their needs, and help them learn and grow. The teaming structure, in short, provides additional support for, and knowledge about, our students. Additionally, our guidance counselors and exceptional learning staff loop with their students to improve connectedness with students and families.

We have a lot to offer our students through exciting course and extra-curricular offerings that expose and enrich our students in various concepts and topics. Through these courses, clubs, and experiences, we hope students leave Riverside as people of good character who constantly are learning and growing.

Whether you are a returning RJH parent or student, or if you are considering moving to Hamilton Southeastern Schools, the staff at Riverside Junior High is excited to work with you and your child to provide a safe, positive, and supportive environment where all students will learn to their highest academic abilities, discover and grow their gifts and talents, and develop as people of good character.
