Eco Landscape Construction will enable students to create sustainable, productive, and aesthetically appealing human environments using natural ecosystems as models. Through experiential, participatory, and classroom learning, students will explore the relationship between personal, social, and ecological sustainability in the rich context of life.
Environmental Engineering will engage students in designing, developing, and evaluating structures, equipment, and systems that protect the environment from the effects of human activity. Engineering allows students to think and problem solve. Through scientific analysis and synthesis, students find solutions to environmental problems, which maximize both their academic rigor and
sense of community. Their projects will reflect scientific principles and environmental awareness.

Rammywood is a annual event that started in 2004 when Riverside High School was Museum Middle School. It was the brainchild of Anne Mastropolo ( School Librarian ), Angelina Mendenz ( Former English Teacher ) and John Mastropolo. Students submit their short films, documentaries, commercials and
public service announcements to be shown off during Rammywood night ( usually May 30 ). An academy ( group of unbiased teachers and other adults ) view all the submited videos and vote on who excelled the most in each category. The winner(s) of each category receive a Rammy ( award ) on Rammywood night. Rammywood night is a reproduction of Oscar award night. There are papparazis, interviewers, concession stands and even a red carpet.
