​​​School Profile - Stakeholder Input 

Current School Profile

Rubidoux High School (RHS) is a four-year comprehensive high school, which is fully accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges. Established in 1959, RHS is the original high school for the Jurupa Unified School District and is now one of three comprehensive high schools serving the Jurupa region, located in the city of Jurupa Valley. Rubidoux high school addresses the needs of the communities comprising the eastern section of the district. 

The staff members of Rubidoux High School are dedicated to promoting high levels of student engagement and achievement in a safe school environment. The opportunity to develop and achieve high standards of citizenship, self-discipline, camaraderie, and critical thinking skills is crucial to meet the demands of the 21st century. 

• RIGOR - providing all students the opportunity to succeed in challenging classes.  

• RELEVANCE - providing courses and projects that garner students’ interests by relating to their lives and the changing world. 

• RELATIONSHIPS - providing students an environment where adult mentors are motivating and supporting scholars to achieve academic and social emotional success. 

Demographically, RHS has an ethnically diverse enrollment of approximately an estimated 1,600 students (92.5% Hispanic, 2.9% White, 2.7% African American, 1.1% Asian, and .6% other). Approximately 22% of our students are English Learners, 84% of our students qualify for free or reduced lunch. 

Student academic progress is measured through multiple formative and summative assessments, completed assignments, department common assessments, district assessments, California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP), and English Language Proficiency assessment for California (ELPAC) data. Progress indicators are analyzed and monitored during staff meetings, department meetings, Impact team meetings, and other collaborative meetings. 

RHS houses a Riverside City College (RCC) Annex. The main RCC campus is approximately five miles to the east. RHS students enrolled in RCC courses are provided with a local bus pass to ensure student access to college resources unavailable on the high school campus. RCC maintains an administrative office at the annex that provides a student counselor to assist high school students with their college and career goals. 

RHS offers excellent and diverse academic programs that extend beyond the general education courses, which includes multiple college and career pathways. RHS has maintained the Rubidoux Early College High School (RECHS) program, established in 2006 and earning the Golden Bell Award in 2009, that continues to offer two college courses per semester to juniors and seniors enrolled in the program. Enrollment eligibility is based on set criteria: 3.8 GPA, high attendance, and low discipline. RECHS’ students have two “open” periods on their schedule to allow for college courses during the academic school day and are placed in a RECHS-designated advisory. RECHS seniors participating in graduation ceremonies receive special recognition for their achievement. 

Newly added, the College and Career Access Pathway (CCAP) was established in Fall 2018 with an initial cohort of thirty-four sophomores. The College and Career Access Pathway (CCAP) program at Rubidoux High School is a joint initiative of the California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office and the California Department of Education which allows high school students to participate in Community College courses while attending Rubidoux High School. The CCAP program is designed to provide students with a pathway to college and to provide them with additional support to give them the best chance for success. The CCAP students can take up to 6 college courses while attending Rubidoux High School. The goal of the program is to develop seamless pathways from high school to community college for career technical education (CTE) or general education transfer, improve high school graduation rates, and help students to become college and career ready. 

In addition, we offer our students a variety of academic programs such as Advanced Placement, articulated courses, career preparation through Career Technical Education (CTE) pathways, curricular programs such as AVID, Yearbook, Foreign Languages, Visual and Performing Arts to support the core curriculum.
