My daughter went to this school for 7th and 8th grades. She absolutely loved it! The growth I saw in my child academically and emotionally outweighed any concerns I may have had when we first started with this school. 8th grade was specially great! Mr. Cooper, Mr. Bromfield, Mr. Hart, and Mr. Church pushed my child to excellence. She went from thinking she was a B student to an "A" student. The principal, Mr. Ferguson is very supportive and hands on with students.

I am a student that goes to Rivera. I certainly do not recommend it to any parents to enroll their children to the school. Even though the school academics are great, there is way too much drugs alcohol and violence on this campus. I am hoping to get into Mcswain school for my 8th grade year. I dislike this school with a passion.

I LOVE this school!!I went here last year and it was completely amaxing.I couldn't go back this ear because my parents forced me to move to a completely different town. I still miss my friends and the school. Especially my teachers, Mr.Whittemore, M. Furtado, and Ms.Broulliard(Ms.B). I cant wait until I see this school again. The education I received from this scholl was completely comprehendable. I could understand everything my teachers taught me. I received an education there that pushed me not only to get straight a's but uo also set goal for myself to achieve what I want.

I believe Rivera is an outstanding school where teachers, parents and staff all work together to prepare students for lifelong learning. Violence on campus is held to an absolute minimum and is dealt with swiftly and fairly. It is just a fun place to be!

Rivera is a goood school.I really like it, granted there is going to be other schools to go to that may be better. Their current seventh grade gate (gifted and talented eduacation) teacher, ms.Chastain is great! She is very funny and can relate to the kids. She can aslo get down to bussiness and really is juat great. Overall I do recomend rivera middle school for other parnets to consider. They have great teachers,principal, and really good sports teams.

Overall I believe that Rivera is a good school in terms of academics. Unfortunately, too much on-campus violence and bullying does not make the campus an encouraging place for students.
