The University of Iowa’s Belin-Blank Center annually releases the Iowa AP Index to recognize the Top 50 Iowa accredited high schools (public and nonpublic) for providing Advanced Placement opportunities.  Magnet Schools, Specially Accredited College Preparatory Schools, non-accredited schools, and home schools are not included in the Top 50 ranking.  Rivermont, being considered a Specially Accredited College Preparatory School, is not included in the Top 50 list.  However, all schools are scored using the same formula, so numerical scores provide a clear comparison.

Based on a 2012 Iowa AP Index score of 2.73, Rivermont Collegiate ranks 4th in the state overall, behind Des Moines Central Campus High School (7.62 – Magnet School), George Washington High School in Cedar Rapids (3.08), and Regina Junior/Senior High School in Iowa City (2.93).
