CTE Building
  • Welcome to the amazing opportunities for our students & local businesses in the world of Work-Based Learning! With the opening of our new CTE Center, we are excited to move students toward work-based learning opportunities in their chosen program of study! 

    Research shows that students who are exposed to workplace experiences while in high school are more likely to graduate from high school and more successful in life after high school. It is with this intention that Riverdale Ridge High School is seeking businesses and organizations to partner with us towards providing a range of experiences, such as clinical experiences, internships, and apprenticeships.

    To learn how to participate in our programs, please contact our CTE/Work-Based Learning Coordinator, Kristin Garcia, at 720-685-1861 or kgarcia1@sd27j.net.
