    Teachers ability to effectively do their job is questionable at best. Staff seems more concerned in convincing parents they are caring then of actually showing leadership.

    River Hall is a great school with wonderful caring teachers. They advocate for positive behavior and encourage it through implemented structures. The teachers go above and beyond for their students pushing them to their capable limits. The school grade is not represented by the true ability of its students and their teachers. It has the highest ESE population in its zone and this has only lately been taken into account for state standardized testing. This really is a great school.

    This is an absolute true account of the things going on at Riverhall the principal Roger Lloyd has ruined this school. I myself reached out to Scott and and Armstrong and they referred me to Marie Vetter who did nothing. In fact she got irritated with me for seeking her help. Telling him things told to her in confidence. It's definately you scratch my back I will scratch yours situation with no care taken for the kids or parents

    River Hall has gone downhill fast since Roger Lloyd took over...It went from an "A" school to being 2 points away from being a "D" school we have lost 52 teachers since he took over & many parents have moved their children to other east zone schools...Many parents have reached out to Dr. Burke & Dr. Adkins who say are working to turn River Hall in the right direction. No matter the outcome Roger Lloyd should not be a principle in any school...request his personal file from the Lee County School Board to find out more!!

    My two children attended River Hall in 2008/09 one in K & 2nd. We loved the school the kids are actually eager to go back after summer break. The teachers seemed to always truly care about my childrens education and well being. The principal office staff and teachers always made me feel welcome as a parent and treated me with respect as a person. I have been treated otherwise in Glades county schools so it was a refreshing change. I finally felt at a peace leaving my children at a public school not worrying over their well being or happiness. I hope our new principal is as awesome as Mr. Humfleet. We had Mrs. E. Smith 2nd & Mrs. K. Thompson K the kids loved them and so did we. They kept us informed and are very comfortable interacting with parents & students. Thanks Keep Up The Good Work!

    This is my son's second year as well and my daughter's first year. I love this school. The principal is so hand's on very involved in the school the children and his staff. I'm very impressed with the teachers they always seem to go above and beyond for the children and the teachers I have had have all seemed so genuinely concerned for my child's education. This by far has been my favorite school I have had to deal with in Lee County. Wish they all were like this one.
