    I am currently a student at River Valley and the administration in our school is very poor and only few sports are achieving any success. Most of the teachers at River Valley are good but there are a few who do very poorly. River Valley has had a high number of student leaving to other schools or dropping out. River Valley is a school that i personly dont hate going to but wish it was better.

    River Valley has involved caring teachers who are tops in their fields and want students to succeed. Excellent administrators at all levels.

    I am a student at River Valley high school. I play football baseball and basketball. Our education program is very productive and our athletics teach us the meaning of pride. I would greatly recomend this school to anyone.

    I am a student at this school. I would say the overall quality of the school is very high. The discipline is average. And although it is a small school it is a wonderful school to attend and receive your education. The teachers are great. Personally I am greatful to be able to go to a school like River Valley. Thank you.

    We're on our way with lot's of improvements. If we could just get more parents involved with their kids and the schools it would be 95% better.
