A Message From Kings Ridge Preparatory Academy & Riverside Traditional School's Principal

Dear Riverside Families, 

It has been eight years since you accepted me into your family and allowed me to take care of your children here at Kings Ridge Preparatory Academy and Riverside Traditional School. I want each of you to know that I have made the decision to retire from my post as a school principal at the end of the school year. This decision was not made lightly, nor did I rush into it. However, it was difficult and each time I told myself that I was going to announce my retirement, I kept seeing the smiles and hearing the laughter of all my students that have touched my heart. 

For more information on Marcus J. Piña's retirement, please read the rest of his farewell.
