More to Explore

In the following section, we reveal the extra layers that contribute to our students' holistic growth, preparing them for a future filled with possibilities.


College Coaching

At River Tech High, we not only support but also encourage dual enrollment, complemented by our dedicated college coaching program. For instance, consider a student who excels in English and has completed Level 4. We encourage such a student to take on a college course like Composition I, while continuing with their regular academic tracks.

A student engaged in dual enrollment will still enjoy the full support of our teachers. Their daily routine remains largely consistent with their peers, with the primary difference being their participation in college-level courses, guided and supervised by a teacher.

In addition to this day-to-day support, we offer strategic assistance for broader educational planning. This includes personalized advice on choosing the most suitable college, selecting the right degree program, navigating student aid options, and more. Each student receives individualized guidance tailored to their unique journey.

Cooking Eggs

Education Meets Kitchen

River Tech High School is excited to introduce "Café Tech," a pioneering program where students take charge of the entire process of meal service—planning menus, purchasing ingredients, cooking dishes, and selling them directly in our school cafeteria. 


From budget management and entrepreneurship to culinary arts and customer service, "Café Tech" offers a hands-on approach to learning that transcends traditional classroom boundaries. Each step, from market to table, is an opportunity for our students to apply academic concepts in real-world situations, fostering a sense of responsibility, teamwork, and community spirit.


The proceeds from these student-led lunches will support a special high school field trip in the spring, adding a meaningful goal to their efforts. Join us as we embark on this gastronomic journey, where every lunch is a lesson in itself.

On a Roller Coaster

Field Trips

At River Tech High School, students experience roughly ten field trips each year, a practice we uphold to significantly enrich their educational journey, far surpassing the typical one or no field trips offered by many other high schools.

Our carefully curated trips are designed to extend learning beyond the classroom walls, providing real-world applications and immersive experiences that textbooks alone cannot offer. From the hands-on learning at local farms to the historical insights gained in museum halls, these excursions foster a deeper understanding of curriculum content.

Equally important are our visits to fun spots like Silverwood and Roller Valley, where students not only enjoy themselves but also learn the value of social interaction, teamwork, and community outside the conventional academic setting.
