    It is a wonderful school. Everyone cares for the students and has their best interest at heart. You feel like you are a part of their family when you are there.

    Riverside's entire faculty goes above and beyond to create a fantastic school atmosphere. I had planned to home-school but unavoidable circumstances led me to enroll my children "just for one year" - or so I thought! Now I cannot imagine a better environment for my children. Thanks to all who have made this a great school!
