Update on RUSD STEM Center

In 2015, UC Riverside signed an agreement with Riverside Unified School District (RUSD) and Riverside Community College to expand STEM education opportunities for Riverside students. One outgrowth of this agreement is building an extension of the Riverside STEM Academy on the UCR campus.

The Riverside STEM Academy currently teaches grades 5 through 12 and has been named the No. 1 STEM middle school in California and the No. 8 STEM high school in the state. Because of the success of the Riverside STEM Academy, RUSD Board decided to commit $50 million of Measure O money, and other available state matching funds, towards the planning, building and completion of a state-of-the-art STEM high school on the campus of UCR. The school will be a magnet school for 800 to 1,200 students, which will provide opportunities for RUSD students and faculty, to partner with UCR researchers and scientists on a daily basis.
