Teacher effectiveness: Agree

They teach us the stuff, we go home to review the stuff. Simple as that. They push us to not be average

Amount of homework: Disagree


- a
The teachers challenge for critical thinking. However, some do not realiE that we are not masters at critical thinking, and so students can be burnt out from 3-4 hours per night


Develops character: Agree

The administration tries its best to instill good, ethical habits into the students. Riordan fosters a good amount of good, scholarly character in its students.

You have an opprtunity to make your high school years there great (multitude of flexible AP Classes, EC's you can get involved in). It is very challenging if you choose to make it that way; however, the only thing I wish is for the school to set up academic/career oriented clubs (Science clubs, FBLA). If the school can realize there are a lot of students that dream of going to top tier, then Riordan will be a really good school. As of right now, I rate it as "good". Also, no only bullies anyone at Riordan. The social atmosphere is relaxing. Some people complain about the demographics not being too "white" enough; I'm sure there are a lot of minorities that do some really good things as well.

Many nowhere-to-be recycled white folks, old lazy slackers, as long as they went to catholic schools, then they'd get jobs at riordan. Faculties bullies faculties, irresponsible teaching, family members, networks, gossipers. Sports mission with a catholic format, full of riff-raffs, difficult to improve academic performance.

I was bullied for four years at Riordan. I started to self harm myself while i was there, i stopped now but i hate this school so much.



- a
I see Filipino students all over the place. It's almost a Filipino school. The most sarcastic view that almost no Filipino faculty and staff want to link their identity. It's sad to see the long held unhealthy cultural, religious bias dominating a school.



- a
Riordan is a sports focused drama school. The management lies on their social media. There is no honesty, integrity, hard working and respect environment around school.


Teacher effectiveness: Disagree


- a
A sports and drama school. No academic performance. English and social science are too fundamental. Math and science are below average standards.



- a
They don't teach your son to have a heart of appreciation, but hatred, boasting and discrimination. There're too many dishonest students lying and cheating. The school is really disappointing.
