    I went to RISD Academy for my elementary years. I got to say that the staff and teachers are very caring of their students. They provide any help needed to the students. I graduated in 2003. Now I am an honor student and about to graduate from high school. This school really helped me get on top.

    I hate that my child has to attend this school. The teachers are so overwhelmed and undersupported that I feel sorry for them. Part of the time the air conditioning is not even working in my child's class. I can't wait to move to another neighborhood and school.
