During a special March 21 School Board Meeting, the West Linn-Wilsonville School Board officially selected Riverside as the name of the District's third option high school following a thorough community engagement process. The Board selected Riverside High School for several reasons, including:

  • Riverside has geographical significance and highlights the school's proximity to the Willamette, Tualatin, and Clackamas Rivers.
  • Riverside is distinct and unique among high schools in Oregon.
  • Riverside is meaningful to both the West Linn and Wilsonville communities, uniting both with this new school that will draw students from all over the district.

Riverside High School will officially open for the 2023-24 school year. It will be located at the current Athey Creek Middle School site following capital bond improvements. The current Athey Creek Middle School will be relocated to the Dollar Street site where construction of a new middle school is currently underway.
