    Riverside is a truly excellent school. The principal is warm caring and fair and my daughter has made significant connections with every teacher she's come in contact with here. They've worked with her to find a curriculum that best suits her needs and several teachers have even supported her activities outside of school! When her best friend was faced with an ugly bullying situation the administration worked with all the families involved to make certain the learning environment was safe and supportive and that the bullies in question were given the guidance they needed to make better choices. I cannot say enough good things about this school and the staff that make it so wonderful!

    My daughter is attending here for first grade after having been in Kindergarten at another Dublin city school. I think this is a good school and I like the low student -teacher ratio however I feel like there is a huge lack of communication between the teachers school admin. and the PTO with the parents. I feel as if I don't know what is going half the time. So while I do think this a great place for learning in a nice neighborhood I really miss the connected feeling I got from my daughter's previous school.

    Riverside rocks. The teachers are so welcoming and care about each and every child. The principle is the best she cares about every child in the school.

    There is much diversity here. It is good and bad. The exposer is good as far as culture however the education is seems to be distrubed from it inthe younger grades. A lot of the younger Kindergarden 1st grade students are still learning english. There are aids to help the children. I feel the staff and teachers work and hearts are dedecatied however parent invoulvment is a concern. Overall my second grader loves his teacher and I sent my kindergarden to a all day private and I know that was the best thing for him.

    My son went through kindergarten here and is now in the middle of first grade. I can say nothing bad about his experience. His teachers have been excellent. They have been very warm and caring for my child. My experience with the staff has been absolutely wonderful.

    Great school! The students are wonderful and the staff is very caring. I couldn't ask for a better learning environment for children.

    My daughter and I moved from Upper Arlington to Dublin in her last year of Elementary School. After a few weeks at Riverside I figured out that I had made a terrible mistake but I was concerned to pull my daughter out of the school and move back to Upper Arlington would be worse. The latch key program and the teacher at Riverside are some of the most insensitive school care workers I have ever encountered. My daughter has come home in tears in fear (of her teacher) more times than I can count. To try and discuss it with the teacher was like driving into a brick wall. My daughter has survived the year made new friends and made good grades. I will be happy when this year comes to an end and can only hope that the Middle School in Dublin is better than their Elementary School.
