  • Help for our neighbors

    As many have seen in news accounts, our neighbors in the Alvord Unified School District have endured significant loss in the past weeks. This included the death of Norte Vista student Marissa Serrato, who was tragically killed in last week’s bus crash in Northern California that occurred as students were headed to Humboldt State University for a college tour. Two other Alvord students were injured in the bus crash. In addition, Norte Vista student Mark Rivera was killed when he was struck by a car near the school during Spring Break. When it comes to caring for others, RUSD believes there are no such things as boundary lines. MLK students exemplified this spirit when they raised $900 for Norte Vista during a “miracle minute” held at the school this week. Students collected spare change for those in need and Principal Darel Hansen distributed the funds to Norte Vista on Thursday. You can help too. Click the headline above for ways to help these families in need.

  • North IB program honored by the Fair Housing Council of Riverside County

    North High School’s International Baccalaureate Diploma program and students are being recognized by the Fair Housing Council of Riverside County, Inc. as “Champions on the Rise” at the council’s April 3 Champions of Justice banquet. Champions on the Rise are defined as students under 18 on a path to give back to the community and better themselves. The Council is recognizing both of our city’s IB programs (North and Norte Vista) because of contributions the IB program and IB students have made to the community. Central to the IB Diploma program is a Creativity, Action, and Service (CAS). The CAS requirement is a fundamental part of the program and takes seriously the importance of life outside the world of scholarship, providing a refreshing counterbalance to academic studies. Students are expected to be involved in CAS activities each week during the two years of the Diploma program and are encouraged to reflect on their CAS activities on a regular basis.
