    I currently have a child enrolled in this school and have 2 older children that also went through Riverside. I absolutely love the atmosphere and staff at Riverside. Yes it is focused on FCAT...but so are every other school in the state of Florida. I feel that my children are not only given every opportunity to advance but that they are encouraged to do so. There aren't many extracurricular activities available but we are talking about 3rd 4th and 5th graders not middle or high school kids. There is the BEAVER CHORUS which gives the kids an introductory look at chorus and performance. There is also BEAVER TALES a student newspaper.

    The school is totally FCAT focused. The current principal and teachers are stressed. In writing I requested a conference with my daughter's language arts teacher and never received a response. Most of the teachers and staff grew up together and if you are not part of the click it is impossibe to be seen or heard. The only way I can think to describe my daughter's classroom last year was - pensive. Even during class parties the atmosphere was opressive. Not for us. We have moved her to a small private school and are looking to relocate.
