Principal's Message

Welcome to Rivera Middle School's website. I am very proud to have been given the honor of being Rivera Middle School's principal. I am dedicated to making this school a place that is good for kids. Because of everyone's hard work, we have been recognized as a California Distinguished School. Throughout this site you can get a picture of our school and the wonderful things we do here. We are very proud of our students' accomplishments and look forward to many more. 

Rivera Middle School has made the following commitment: 

- We will not let students off the hook for failing to learn 
- We will make students do what is necessary to succeed 
- We will not give students the easy way out 
- We will give students extra time and support 

Our focus is on what students have learned. We provide a variety of experiences that are well planned and articulated to give all students the opportunity to develop their skills to the fullest. We are proud of the fact that we have one of the highest success number of students taking and scoring proficient on the California Standards Test in Algebra. 

At Rivera, we are solution oriented. We believe everyone is part of making this school a good place for kids. Everyone can come in and address concerns and suggest solutions to make our school a place where children come first. With the assistance of parents, teachers, staff, and students, we provide a safe learning environment that promotes success in all curricular and extracurricular programs. 

 Our goal is to prepare our students for success in a complex society. This requires dedication to being the best we can be. We provide a challenging curriculum based on the state standards, teachers who are dedicated to improving the profession and administrative staff that is focused on supporting the learning community. 
 Andrew Alvidrez, Principal
