    Nice small school where everyone knows each other. I have attended and have had a great time.

    We are so happy that our kids are a part of such an amazing school. No matter what the grade level or subject matter you can't go wrong with any of the teachers. Each one has their own special way of teaching while at the same time maintaining a rapport with both students and parents. The leadership by our wonderful principal is second to none and she always keeps the lines of communication open.

    Riverton was an excellent experience for my kids. A word of warning is to be prepared for what the sending high school has to offer because if you take for granted that the same standards will be kept there you will be sadly mistaken. Check the ratings and test scores and compare the curriculum taught between other area public and private schools.

    This school exudes excellence from the top down. The place is full of educators that CARE about our families and our children. I currently have three in school and will be sad to leave this wonderful nurturing place.
