I was a student here for ten years, the staff was great to me and the high-school is like one close family. They don't discriminate against any type of person. No body's perfect, and no one here pretended to be. they showed me what a true Christian is! Loving, caring, firm in faith and they come along side to help you WHEREVER you need it, no matter if it was in school work or just life! This school was amazing and taught me to love others and most of all Jesus Christ my Savior. I had a hard time leaving my family. Most people say "Oh! this is like my second home!" but to me, this was my first. Thanks everyone at River for they great years we had together!

I am a current student at River Of Life and I love it. I have been going here since I was very young and this school has taught me so much. Without this school I probably wouldnt be saved today. This school is very Christian based and any child that I've seen that comes into this school always has a hard time leaving. This is an amazing school.

This school is a terrible place I would never ever bring my child back to this school I hate it with a passion they called my child a satanist and made her hate religion This school took my child's virginity. Google Joshua Carroll Tuscon AZ.

You take a special interest in every student. You give them a safe place to get an education. You help them learn about religion!!!

The teachers and principal go over and above to teach my high schoolers. I am positive that they will be ready for college by the time they graduate. Top notch!!

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
