Riverview East has an After School Program sponsored by Grad Cincinnati. This program which is funded through a 21st Century Grant allows us to have an assortment of programs for our students in grades 7-12. These programs include a Poetry Cafe, tutoring, extra help sessions, Entrepreneur Club, Bike Club (where students build their own bikes and learn about physics), photography club and dance club. All of these clubs and activities are available to students. For more information about this program, please contact Ms. Brantley, the After School Coordinator, at (513) 363-3478.
Credit Recovery/Summer Learning
There are times when our high school students fall short of their credits. This is an important service we offer students to get caught up in their work. Credit Recovery is part of our After-School program. It starts in October and goes to the end of December. It starts again in February and goes until May 1. We also have summer learning for our students who are in need of making up credits. This helps with making sure that students meet graduation requirements. For more information, please contact our counselor, Ms. Huber at (513) 363-3419.
We are proud to have a Community Health Center that is staffed during the school day. It not only serves our community but also serves our students. There is a separate entrance for the community members so that there is no way for non-school personnel to interact with the children. However, the students and families can use this facility which is located directly in our school. Please contact them at (513) 363-3476 if you have further questions.
Margaret's Place is a room at our school that allows our students in grades 7-12 to drop in if they are experiencing any kind of challenge whether it be something as simple as nervous with an upcoming test to actual abusive situations.
