Riverside High School is a public high school in Painesville Township, Lake County, Ohio. It is the only high school in the Riverside Local School District (prior to July 2007, the Painesville Township Local School District). The Riverside Campus houses John R. Williams Junior High School, Riverside High School, the Football stadium, a bus garage, a field house, several baseball fields, the Board of Education, and the Weiss Media Center. The first classes were held in September 1949 and the first class of seniors graduated in 1952. The campus was originally two separate buildings- one for the lower grades, and the second for the upper grades. In the late 1990s, The John J. Weiss Media Center was built connecting the two buildings with four computer classrooms, a television studio, and a library.

Logo infringement[edit]

In 2010, Oregon State University forced Riverside High School and the Riverside Local School District to change their Beaver mascot logo because of copyright concerns.[2][3]
