Collins-Riverside Middle School

The Riverside Way: Respect, Responsibility, Resilience


  • It is with great pleasure that I introduce myself, Steven Sims, as the new principal of Collins-Riverside Middle School. My passion for education and the success of all students has been shaped over my years serving as a teacher, coach, athletic director, and assistant principal.  In each role, I have sought to ensure the success of each student and school by providing the best educational and extracurricular opportunities possible.  Similarly, it is my number one priority at Collins-Riverside Middle School that every student receives a well-rounded education.   

    The Collins-Riverside faculty and staff are excited to work with you as we provide high quality, rigorous, challenging and relevant instruction for your children.  Collins-Riverside Middle School staff members seek to empower students to develop a passion for lifelong learning and nurture them by engaging their intellect, emotions, and natural curiosity. Our mission is creating a safe and supportive environment in which all learners can pursue academic and social learning experiences and fulfill their unique potentials.

    The community as a whole will be a considerable part of the success of Collins-Riverside Middle School.  Parent involvement increases student achievement and enriches the school community.  Please feel free to regularly volunteer, join the PTO, and be a part of extracurricular events at Collins-Riverside.  By doing so, you are providing valued attention to students, teachers, and the school community.  As we build upon existing relationships and forge new ones, let us collaboratively support the social, emotional, and academic well-being of each child at Collins-Riverside Middle School. Through this teaming effort, we will make tremendous progress for all.

    Thank you for trusting your child in our care and partnering with faculty/staff members to prepare your children for their future endeavors. I look forward to the year ahead. Please feel free to email me at with questions, suggestions, and/or concerns.
