Raider Family,

I welcome you to the “Excellent” River Valley High School. It is my pleasure to serve the school and community as the fourth principal of River Valley High School. I believe in collaboration with families and our community to provide the best opportunities for our students. I am a 2001 graduate of RVHS, and I am proud to continue as a Raider. Pride, Tradition and Integrity are three strong pillars of River Valley High School. As members of the school community, I thank you for contributing to the success of our students and our school.

We take pride in our school and the facilities the community has invested in for the students of RVHS. The custodial and maintenance staff continue to ensure the facilities are ready for our students. Thanks to their commitment to excellence, the school looks crisp and ready for another year. I would like to say “thank you” to the community for providing River Valley Students with a state of the art building and facilities for our students.

RVHS has a tradition of providing a challenging and rigorous curriculum to our students. This year we will continue to offer on campus multiple Advanced Placement courses, Career & Technical courses as well as College Credit Plus courses for our students. With the vision of “Every Student Prepared”, throughout their four years, our students will explore their own interests, investigate career opportunities and through community partnerships explore possibilities for their future.

C.S. Lewis stated that “integrity is doing the right thing, even when no one is watching.” Extracurricular activities provide students with experiences, opportunities for leadership and situations that require them to uphold high levels of integrity. Students that participate in extracurricular activities gain leadership and interpersonal skills essential to life beyond high school. The many extra curricular activities available to students at RVHS, provide students with opportunities to become highly involved both within and outside the building walls.

I look forward to a wonderful year. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at 740-446-2926 or


T.R. Edwards, Ed.D.
