RMS Receives Highest Ratings on School Report Card
RMS School Report Card

We are extremely proud of our students, faculty and staff here at Riverside Middle Schools as we were one of a very few schools in South Carolina to score the highest possible rating on all three of these assessments.

We could not have achieved this result without our strong home to school connection. At RMS we believe that Great communities make great schools and great schools make great communities. We are privileged to serve such a great community.

We appreciate your help in spreading the word about the great things that are happening at RMS!

Complete RMS school achievement information can be found on the Achievement page.
