River Valley High School (Also known as RVHS) is a public high school located in Yuba City, California. The high school is noted for its excellence and advancement in education. It currently holds the title of one of the best high schools in Sutter County surpassing Yuba City High School in test scores in 2009.


The school, the second in the city after Yuba City High School, was built thanks in part to Measure SS, a $30.6 million bond measure approved by voters in 1999.

The school's first day of classes was Aug. 22, 2005, with Don Beno as principal. In its first year of operation, the school served only freshmen and sophomores, but added one class each year through 2007. River Valley had four grades beginning in the 2007-2008 school year with a total of 1700 students.

The current principal of the school is Tom Reusser. The former principal of the school is Larry Bonds, Jr., who assisted in opening River Valley in its first year. Prior to moving to River Valley, Bonds served as an Assistant Principal at Yuba City High School for three years.

River Valley celebrated its first graduating class in 2008.
