    Excellent school. Great teachers. Wonderful parents and kids. Smallest school in the county with the highest test scores around.

    I have three children that attended Riverbend and had an excellent experience there. The teachers care about the development and progress of their students. There is an environment of positivity and encouragement. My boys are now in high school and still talk about their good times friends and instructors at Riverbend.

    Riverbend is a great school. They recently won the National Blue Ribbon Award. They have excellent test scores. I believe this is because the school is small and it gives more of a one on one with the students. Their teachers and staff are very caring and help their students strive. Even the PTO goes out of their way to help the students.

    I don't recommend this school B/c Staff don't want to help the child. They want to Call 500 times a day. They don't want to help childern to that are behind to school.
