About This School

Riverside Preparatory School is located in Oro Grande, CA and is one of 5 schools in Oro Grande Elementary School District. It is a charter school that serves students in grades K-10.

Charter schools are public schools, but differ from traditional public schools in that they are independent and are operated by educators, parents, community leaders, educational entrepreneurs, or others. Funding for charter schools is based on designated local or state educational organizations. Those organizations are responsible for monitoring and assessing the quality and effectiveness of education, but permit the schools to operate outside of the traditional public school education system. See Riverside Preparatory School's test results to learn more about school performance.

A school's Academic Performance Index (API) is a scale that ranges from 200 to 1000 and is calculated from the school's performance in the Standardized Testing and Reporting (STAR) Program. The state has set 800 as the API target for all schools to meet.

Riverside Preparatory School had an API growth score of 822 in 2012. California uses the Academic Performance Index (API) to measure annual school performance and year-to-year improvement.

Riverside Preparatory School Reviews

By , a Teacher on

It is not completly accurate that Riverside Prep did not make AYP.  The fact is that graduation rates caused the school to fail AYP scores even though  there was no graduating class last year.  The API was 814, an amazing score for a first year school.  When we have a gradeuating classw (2009-2010) that should change.  It's too bad that figuring scores for these tests does not include some adequate scoring possibilities when a school does not have a graduating class.
