    Great school. Positive environment. Most teachers are fantastic! A lot of family involvement. Better than the surrounding parochial schools. Service oriented. Strong parent organization. The star of CMSD.

    Riverside is the best school ever i am a student and without riversiede i would be stuck in a urban dangerous school we are not bullied or made fun of at all and thats why i love it here

    After moving from Brunswick 10 years ago we feared putting our 1st child in Cleveland Public Schools. After doing several on site visits to many of the Public Schools we found Riverside Elementary to be the BEST! My husband and I then decided that we would also check out a few of the Private Schools. Upon doing visits to some of the private schools we compared them to Riverside and to be very honest we were shocked to find that Riverside had a better curriculum a better atmosphere and teachers that were just very kind & welcoming. Needless to say our son is getting ready to graduate from the 8th grade. We have since put our 2 other children into Riverside as well. This school is simply amazing!!! You will not be disappointed!

    The school is decent at best. There are a few kids that don't go to that school in the building at the end of the day. Security is so lax it's alarming. The school is slowing becoming a regular Cleveland Public School.

    I loved riverside i went there and my mom trusted them to keep me there k-8 now im a senior in high school and i still think about Riverside! It is a really great school to attend.

    My husband and I actually moved to Westpark with the idea that our daughter was to go to St. Marks. But After touring both schools Riverside seemed like the best choice and we were right! It has been the greatest experience for us and our daughter. I recomend this school to any parents I talk to. Thanks Riverside for making this school year so memorable ) PS. Thanks also to all the staff you are grade A!

    I really like the education at Riverside! The principal teachers and staff seem wonderful. I only have one concern and that is the parking. It is to difficult to pick up the children. There is no parking! There isn't enough space to leave your car on the street snd wait. I keep getting stuck on side streets. Something has to be done.

    Despite the poor state of the Cleveland Public School District Riverside school is excellent Great staff; beautiful new bldg opened this year; many extra curricular activities. I was more impressed with Riverside than compared to a local 'suburban' school that my child has attended in the past.

    Awesome so high tech students actually get to learn how to use the computer and they have sanitary bathrooms and good food unlike Benjamin Franklin.

    Riverside is a family. I love this school. The parents and teachers and the principal make a great team for the students. The major work program is excellent.
