The special education department is awful. The principal does not return emails. The school district only has one speech staff person that serves the three school in the district. The special education department will cut services such as Speech, Adapt PE, etc. if your child receives it. A lot has to do with the school not having the funds to fully support special education. Staff tries to force the parents to sign the IEP on the spot after the meeting. Which violates parental rights. So Beware! Staff looks the other way when it comes to bullying. Find another school and run as fast as you can!! Better yet fill out an inter-district transfer and send them to either Roseviile, Rocklin, Lincoln or Granite Bay Schools. Much better education and the staff really cares about students even the special education department wants to see students succeed.
I had nothing but problems with this school. I truly feel the teachers are there only for a paycheck and do not care about any student that isn't earning at 4.0 GPA. I am so happy and relieved my child finished the 8th grade so we no longer have to deal with this school. Students receive referrals and suspensions for things that get overlooked at other schools. Its easier for the teachers and principal to remove the students and not have to deal with them than provide guidance and mentorship. When it is time for my other children to enter 6th grade, it will NOT be at Riverside Meadows Intermediate School.
