Student Spotlights



     Grace Driggs is a senior at Riverton High School who maintains a 4.0 grade point average. She is the oldest of six children and loves spending time with her family.  She has taken mostly college level classes here at Riverton High. She is enrolled in three Advanced Placement courses this year and has taken and passed five AP classes with high scores in the past.  Grace is the current secretary of the National Honor Society and has earned her academic letter.  She has many talents among them being really good at math. She has used that talent to create a fairly lucrative job of tutoring kids after school.  She loves all sports although she is not involved in any particular sports team. She loves to run and play tennis.
     Grace is very outgoing and friendly.  She was voted 1st attendant at Homecoming this year.  She loves helping people and tries to give service whenever she can.  She is a peer tutor in the special education department.  A perfect day for Grace would be watching the movie “Megamind” and eating corn. She can beat almost anyone on the “name that line in a movie game", especially Disney.  She has plans on serving and LDS mission and attending college to pursue a master’s degree in math or science.

In addition to all his participation in sports, he is a member of Health Occupations Club and the National Honor Society.  He has received his   Eagle Scout award and has volunteered for the Make A Wish foundation. He plans on serving an LDS mission and attending the University of Utah to major in Biology and eventually become an Orthopedic Surgeon.  His goal is to have a great family and a wonderful career.

Driver Ed Information


Thank you for not parking in the maroon parking stalls in the north parking lot between 2:30 & 7:00 p.m. Monday – Friday and Saturday mornings. We would rather not tow your vehicle as it is expensive for you to retrieve it!  Park in a yellow stall and you will be safe! Thanks for your cooperation. Always assume there will be a range…
