    A fantastic choice of schooling! Wonderful teachers high education standards excellent student base and friendly to all. Expected little but was wonderfully amazed!

    We relocated to the area this school year. The school has been very good for my 8th grader. Academically the teachers are "tough" but not overly so. My son was used to a somewhat lax atmosphere and this year he is actually studying. My son has not had any problems making friends. District is well organized academically.

    Terrible school. They all have liberal views and the first year principal will not address your concerns cause he is to busy and on his power trip ?

    Having the teacher's grade book availble via the parent's portal is great. I can keep up with my student's grades weekly and don't have to wait for a progress report to become aware of missed assignments. Email updates from the teachers make me feel that I'm aware of my student's progress.

    Although the school has a dress code I don't see the admin and teachers enforcing it. There are girls wearing embarrasingly short skirts and low-cut blouses. Despite the excellence in the academics it is unacceptable for students to dress inappropriately.

    I am a student at riverside and this is an awsome school. We have the best teachers ever and I made friends easily. We have great disipline practices and bullies are not tollerated. The best pact scores are located in are school. If you have good grades you get in the classes you should be in and if you are having trouble you get help. I love this school its amazing.

    Most teachers at this school are great. There are a few exceptions where teachers do not reach the needs of their students and don't seem to care.

    This is one of the best middle schools in the state based on test scores. Discipline is excellent and teachers are certainly well qualified. The only downside is the social 'scene' at Riverside. If you expect your child to make friends good luck! Students are rude unfriendly and sometimes snobbish. Your child will be educated well but will quickly lose self-esteem and happiness--trust me.
