Above and beyond the expectations we had. RHLS has been an excellent educational experience. From Principal Nolan and her leadership has stemmed an high quality group of teachers and administrators. The experiences are unlike any other. The standout quality is the high educational standards at every grade level. However, they round out the students with activities including daily active physical education, music and theater, public speaking, manners, Spanish, and religion. The icing on the cake are the life-enriching trips: outdoor school, space camp, Sacramento, Washington D.C., and Europe. There are many schools who have speak highly, but don't back it up academically. Conversely, there are great schools who do not have a warm, supportive environment. RHLS is a family working, and succeeding, at getting the best out of our kids.

Our child loves attending Riviera Hall! This school is providing an excellent, well-rounded education in a nurturing, stimulating and fun learning environment. We are so impressed with how the staff is building character, patriotism and leadership skills, while providing outstanding academics in a Christian faith community. The principal, teachers and coaches are exceptional -- we couldn't be happier with the quality of education our child is receiving. Riviera Hall is providing our child a wonderful foundation and we are pleased to be part of such a warm and inspiring community.

Riviera Hall is top notch academically, but, just as important, there is a great sense of community and camaraderie that is essential for developing a well-rounded student. The principal is very involved and really cares. I can't recommend this school highly enough!

This school is outstanding. By the time they get to high school, they are academically ahead of most of the other kids. On a personal level, my daughter says she feels very safe and loved.

This school offers an outstanding academic education in a Christian environment. The students are well prepared for high school and college. The teachers are well qualified and caring. For being a small school many extra curricular activities are offered. Riviera Hall won the 2004 Mock Trial competetion for Middle School.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

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.
