    My children are very happy at Riverside. It is a small school with small class size and a high student to teacher ratio. All the children in the school know each other. The teachers are generally very experienced and have high expectations for the students. Parents are friendly and very involved in the PTA and school community. The school is located in a great little area of town.

    The staff and parents are all very involved! It is a small setting which allows all the students to get the extra attention they need in order to excel. I love it

    I feel the staff is wonderful. I couldn't be happier sending my daughter here.

    Riverside is an excellent school. I live a couple of doors down from the school and couldn't be happier. The staff and parents are all very involved! It is a small setting which allows all the students to get the extra attention they need in order to excel.

    Riverside is a small almost 'private like' school. The entire school stands proud together in the morning and recites the Pledge of Allegiance. The classes are small and the teachers are wonderful. The school testing scores of 100% speak for themselves. I am currently looking to move within RVC but I told my Realtor only Riverside school district. Parent involvement is strong - there is something for everyone to contribute. From the working parent to those that stay home. It truly is a nurturing environment for our children.
