I had two children in this school for almost a year and they complained everyday that they were being bullied. The counseler was great and tried to help. But I felt like this school lacks discipline.

Riverside was a great experience that I will never forget. All of the faculty is great, but especially Coach Griffin. He truely cares about his students and players.
