When using a GPS navigation system, we recommend entering the address as opposed to searching "River Arts Center", as some systems will confuse "River Arts Center" with "River Arts Inc", which is a different location.
Parking outside of school hours is available in the south lot or staff high school lot. You may disregard the "parking permit required" sign outside of school hours. During school hours, street parking is recommended.
