This is a wonderful school! My son goes to the Corona campus. This is our first year and we LOVE this school! His teacher is amazing and does wonderful projects that give each child a love for learning. The principle takes times to know the children and the families, she is very kind and approachable,with the a focus of maintaining a great environment for the kids to flourish.The other children are very kind and considerate.We are very involved parents and very particular about our child's education and we highly recommend this school. We took my child out of the highest rated elementary school in Corona-Norco school district. We will never return to tradition public school. We LOVE Springs Charter and the stand they take in education our kid! The kids get to be themselves and are encouraged to think and explore at this school. They are not always placed in the stigma of being pushed to out do each other or go beyond the state standards. My child had growing anxiety in public school, but now he is realizing his full potential and ownership over his own learning.

River Springs maintains a focus of providing high quality support for parents and students who would benefit from an alternative public school education. The school provides a variety of programs from homeschooling to independent study programs that offer online learning, tutoring, classroom instruction, and student support services. River Springs has consistently provided student support services through the school's counseling services. As a school counselor who works for River Springs, I know first hand how beneficial these service have been for K-12 families and high school students

This is an extremely good school for any student. It has a vast array of curriculum, individualize instruction, mentors and people that truly care about the education of young people. Yes, we are for Parent Choice, but we have benchmarks to see how the student is progressing. After all, parents and educators want students to achieve to the highest potential.

I am an employee of Springs Charter Schools and have worked with many of the staff members for more than 10 years. Our school is a great place to work as well as have your children attend. We offer a wide variety of different programs that are designed with different learners in mind. Many families that I work with are homeschoolers and they love the different options that they can use when spending their instructional funds. Springs is an excellent option to the traditional school setting.

The school has great art and computer art elective classes...Photoshop, Photography, InDesign and Drawing and Painting. Dance and Theater as well. Teachers on the mark. One really cool thing is the mechanical engineering elective classes include hands on robotic competition/wars with other schools throughout the state. If you are not into sports or feel lost in a bigger school, the kids at this school go out of their way to be friendly with most everyone.

This school is great! teachers are awesome and the people that works there are super friendly, my daughter loves to go to school everyday and she is learning so much in kindergarten, full time free kindergarten with a wonderful teacher who is always giving us update on everything , and I'm so happy this school respect the separation of church and state, they have parents support on everything they do because they want the best for our children, and the person who just left a comment about the religious material that was removed I have something to tell you, does this affect you? does your children goes there? if so, do you know there is a Christian school right across River springs? anyway this school is absolutely incredible wonderful .

This school now has removed all "Christian books" from their library citing their "sectarian" nature. Perhaps the leadership should review the first amendment and then define "sectarian" lest they have very few books in their library.

Quest Academy Orange County is an amazing school and provides a welcoming environment for your child. My children were nervous to start a new school, but at the end of the school year they told me that this is the best school they have been to and they are so happy that they go here. That says it all for me. The teachers are amazing and because it is a small school all the children from kinder through 8th grade know each other. They have a leadership program, classroom gardens, personalized learning and a PE teacher. Overall a great school!

My 5th grader started attending IShine Learning Center this year. I pulled her from our neighborhood elementary. I must say, as a parent, this was a hard choice to make. But I'm so glad we did! She loves this school. Her teacher is awesome and she thinks the world of 'Ms. Sue'. It's just the type of learning environment that she thrives in. Very independent and very individualistic. This is how she learns best. She attends Monday -Thursday with Fridays designated for a home study day. This has been beneficial for us because it's allowed her work on her projects at home. The teachers seem very happy when they greet the kids in the mornings! Highly recconend this school! We'll miss it when we move out of state this summer.

My child has attending 3rd and 4th grade at the Da Vinci Elementary School at River Springs Charter. I strongly believe this school isn't equipped to assist students that struggle with the fast paced environment. The teachers (well, the ones my child had) seem willing to allow the kids to get left behind unless the parents demand some actions. A lot of the work is done in class, so if there are issues, the parents aren't aware of it until progress reports are posted. My child struggles in math and isn't at the proper grade level. I thought attending a charter school would be a benefit. Now I believe he is further back than when we started this school. I am faced with having to get my child a tutor this summer in order to catch up before being transferred back to a traditional school. I actually spoke with an administrator at the Temecula Valley Elementary School and she said that they get a lot of kids coming back from River Springs Charter. That was very sad to hear. If your child isn't a mini-adult ready for the fast pace of college at age 10, you may want to rethink sending them to Da Vinci Elementary.

River Springs Charter in Temecula offers a wonderful and quality education for my multi-aged children from the elementary program to the highschool program. Our children feel loved, accepted, and excited at drop-off and pick-up!!! We have had tons of support from teachers, staff and administration. Teachers are amazing and Mrs. Pangle is always there to support us in every situation. We've been attending for over 3 years now and experienced many great things. I believe that anyone who has had a bad experience at this school has brought it upon themselves with negative attitudes, ridiculous expectations, or lack of communication. Great people who raise wonderful children have success in any situation. This is a wonderful school and we have had nothing but great experiences. I recommend this school in a heartbeat!!

River Springs Da Vinci Academy Temecula. My child went to this school from the moment it opened it's elementary school 4 years ago. First off I want to say that the teachers are outstanding! My daughter excelled with their help and guidance, however, the administration is HORRIBLE! Mrs. Pangle should be fired. I helped very often in the classroom and around the campus and attended almost all the events and I very rarely saw the Principal nor the Vice Principal. I think it is a tragedy that they are not involved. I know a 3rd grade teacher was not welcomed back for reasons that are inaccurate as I helped in that class very often, and again never saw the Principal enter or observe. I don't know how the principal and the vice principal have fooled the administration so long but this school could be GREAT if they brought on some better administration. The PTSO really tries to do events and activities, however there is definitely a lack of parent involvement. We recently had to move so my child is no longer attending and now that I am at a new school and seeing how a Principal SHOULD be involved I realize what the school is lacking. Hopefully River Springs changes things.

River Springs Magnolia Student Center : the teachers only care about test scores. My daughter was advanced in both English and Math until she got into this school. Her teacher even told us that she loves math and doesn't really teach English in her class. Well, that showed in her test scores. Now in a different grade, her teacher says very mean things, she keeps a bathroom log and now my daughter is afraid to go if she has to.

This is our third year at River Springs Charter School (now Springs Charter School). My kids love it! We have choosen the challenging task of homeschooling our children and River Springs has provided us the tools and resources to do this successfully! I have been very impressed with the Educational Specialists (ESs) that help guide you through the homeschooling process and ensure that all the paperwork is complete for the state requirements. The Educational Specialists are all CA certified teachers that choose to be ESs and I have found them to be so open and understanding of the needs of EACH of our children. The school's philosophy that Parents Have Choices for the education of their children has allowed us to customize the curriculum for both of our children! I wish I had this type of education when I was growing up!

River Springs Charter School has something for everyone. Although we use the homeschool option (with my children taking workshop classes one day per week at a learning center), I like that there are programs available for them to attend classes more regularly in the future if that works better for us. My Education Specialist is great at guiding me as I educate my children. I get the support and guidance I need while still having the freedom to make educational choices for my kids.

River Springs served a purpose for our family for 7 years. At the beginning, we homeschooled and took advantage of enrichment and core classes. It was so exciting and fun to learn with your own children! The teachers teaching site-based courses were wonderful! Then, we attended the middle school program for 3 years. It was a safe and friendly place without all of the middle school social concerns. My child was extremely happy. We also had a high school student in the high school program. The program served a purpose of getting out of the large, traditional high school but I feel more time could be put into that program to engage the students and continue their love of learning. There needs to be more emphasis put on high school counseling as well. To end on a positive note, the pros definitely outweighed the negatives and I am thankful for River Springs and their ability to provide alternative forms of education that parents and children desperately need today. Thank you River Springs!

HORRIBLE! Unsafe campus that is unmonitored. Poor academics with no guidance.

My children have been students at River Springs for three years and one is graduating this June. We have been pleased with the high school program, holding students and parents accountable for keeping up with assignments and meeting state standards expectations. Yearly state testing and course scheduling with guidance counselors ensures that my kids are "on track" with their peers and will be able to successfully transition to college after high school. There is more flexibility with the K-8 students, where you have the ability to choose curriculum tailored to your child's needs and learning styles.Finally, being able to enroll your kids in extracurricular lessons and classes and have the school pay for them is just the icing on the cake!

My husband and I found ourselves in a position where we needed guidance and instruction addressing the unique needs of one of our children. Our last child could not respond to traditional teaching. After many attempts and the use of various commonly tried methods, it was time to seek additional help. Homeschooling has challenges for a child who learns differently. After the tried and tested measures failed to give desired results we were able to set up appointments with personnel who could offer more extensive testing and evaluations. I was directed to meet with school professionals to discuss my concerns. They were patient and kind to us. Our child was made to feel comfortable and cared for. We were eventually assigned to a wonderful and caring woman who is still working with us today. She works two hours a week with our child .I also found a reading specialist through River Spring s Vendors just minutes away from my home who adds another two hours of help. These resources are at my finger tips and with the use of flex- funds; my personal costs are greatly offset. River Springs is an organization available to help us, and others like us, along our educational journey.

We love that as River Springs homeschoolers we are able to align our children s interests and passions with their education. My son loves science and engineering and is able to participate in science labs and a Lego simple machines class. My daughter is able to take horseback riding lessons, study about horsemanship and equestrian related sciences. With RSCS there is an accountability to the State Standards. Our children are competitive with traditional school children and are working at grade level. River Springs has support programs such as "I Can" classes, OARS, and more. With "I Cans" RSCS offers awards and incentives for completing the standards. My daughter received a Kindergarten "I CAN" medal and wears it proudly. My son is already more that 50% proficient in the second grade "I Can" standards. In addition to workshops and parent in-services, each family works with a highly qualified teacher at monthly meetings, and collaborate on student progress, develop personalized lesson plans, and review student assessments. My kids love attending workshop classes, making friends, and being involved in sports, nutrition, and Math Fun and Games.

River Springs provides many options for educating children from full-time academy programs, to part-time.site and part-time homeschool as well as full-time homeschool. The staff and school truly strive to personalize education for each individual child. As a homeschool Education Specialist, I am there to walk along side parents as they travel this journey of home education. I have an immense amount of resources and tools at my hands to support and instruct parents as they educate their children. Some of these include: homeschool philosophies, curriculum suggestions/choices, learning style inventories, online assessments, power tools (teaching strategies), teacher training, networking opportunities and many more. River Springs is a great option for many children throughout Riverside county as well as parts of San Diego, Orange and San Diego counties.

I have been an Educational Specialist for River Springs for 8 years. All of my educational career has been spent teaching out-side-of-the box, so working for a home school was a very interesting approach for me. River Springs is an accredited alternative approach for parents to implement the curriculum of their choice guided by professional educators on benchmarks and rigor. The administration is always up to date on policy, new methods of instruction and fun exciting approaches to learning. They also have the parent in mind and hold numerous curriculum workshops and child developmental sessions throughout the school year. We as educators also have the opportunity to grow in our specialty as well as in new areas. I have a strong belief that we should leave what we are working on in a better state than when we started. River Springs has given me that opportunity to know that I have done a good job for my families, my students and their future, the school and myself.

I have worked as an ES (Education Specialist) at River Springs for the past 3.5 years and I absolutely love it. I am proud to work at a school that honors parent choice and views the community as the child's real classroom. I work in the Keys High School Independent Study Program and it is amazing to see what River Springs helps these kids achieve; students work independently but are also given the opportunity to work in small classroom settings. They are involved in internships, community service, and the dual enrollment program at Mt. San Jacinto. Several high school graduates have remained in contact with me and have told me that because they learned how to be independent learners in high school, they were prepared for and are successful in college. Above all, I am proud of our school because it is rigorous and challenging -- we have high standards of our students and seeing them work to those standards and feeling pride in their accomplishments is the greatest part of my job. River Springs is a positive and wonderful place. I highly recommend it!

I have been a River Springs parent for many years and all 4 of my children have attended RSCS in both Homeschool & Academy programs. Each has been very successful - 2 have graduated and are high honor students in college and our younger 2 currently attend the Hemet Quest Academy. Some of the reasons I chose River Springs: Personal relationships with administrators and teachers; I LOVE that director knows each student by name and fosters a STRONG sense of community; the teachers work hard to provide a personalized education; students are encouraged to think outside the box while at the same time being held to high academic standards. Not everyone learns in the same way at the same time. A favorite quote by Albert Einstein is, Everyone is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing it is stupid. To me, this is what our school is about. Caring about the children we educate! Many children are forced into cookie cutter education programs- they give up and we lose them. I have been very happy with the education my children have received at RSCS. I can t imagine them going to school anywhere else. Julie Chapman

I worked as a classroom teacher for a few years before coming to work for River Springs as an Education Specialist. I have to say, it has opened my eyes to the real potential kids have for learning and what differentiated instructions REALLY means. As a classroom teacher in an inner-city school, I tried to differentiate instruction but it was ridiculously difficult to do on a daily basis. In my opinion, homeschooling is a TERRIFIC option for an education. If you are looking to homeschool your child, RSCS is the place to do it. You get the support of an Education Specialist via face-to-face meetings, email, phone, and text whenever you have any questions. There are so many programs to choose from that the school seems to have found a way to tailor-make education for almost anyone. You can choose from a traditional setting in a classroom to homeschooling with enrichment classes at a site or simply homeschooling full-time at home. It's all about parent choice!

I have been an Education Specialist with River Springs Charter School for the past 6 years and I m so impressed with all that River Springs has to offer students. In the homeschool department, parents are able to choose their curriculum that best meets the needs of their child with the help of a credentialed Education Specialist (ES). River Springs also offers enrichment classes and a wide variety of field trips to enhance at home learning. If you are new to homeschooling, River Springs has a program called Keys Transitions that offers weekly support from an ES who trains the parents in delivering instruction and other important strategies. If you are looking to homeschool your child then River Springs is the school for you.

My family and I have been very pleased with the opportunities provided to us by River Springs Charter School. By myself, I am a good homeschool teacher -- I believe that no one else can teach my children as well as I can. But with the support of an ES, other homeschool parents, and this school, I am even better. Here are just a few things or activities that we "get" from being a part of River Springs: supplemental workshops in Science and History, writers' workshops, group field trips, trainings and events for me as a teacher/parent, free curriculum and supplies, and extracurricular classes that I otherwise wouldn't be able to afford. I love homeschooling, and I would be a good teacher to my children regardless. But with the support system through River Springs, my children get something extraordinary, which is exactly what they deserve.

In my opinion, this school all around is alright. They need to hire better understanding teachers that will actually walk you through the lesson rather than expecting you to already know it. This school also needs to offer sports and more extracurricular activities. Like a hip-pop dance team, because I would LOVE to take that offer. However, this school as gave me a great education than when I was homeschooled independently at home.

The teachers, Education Specialists, and other staff ALL take a great interest in encouraging, supporting and facilitating personal learning. Our homeschool parents are supported and given many tools to reach each of their students. We want all students to reach their potential and to ENJOY learning. By offering a choice of curriculum, fieldtrips, and educational opportunities, every student has the opportunity to engage in learning that fits their style and interest. What a truly awesome opportunity!

This school is run like a business. The more students they have, the more money they get and that is their main focus. My son's class had 45 students in it with very little walking room. There is very little "individualized attention" within classrooms. Furthermore, classes are run in a "learning center" structure where each group of 10 children literally has about 8 minutes to learn a new subject in class. That group then rotates to another "learning center" to practice what they just learned. You will find that the children are playing around because they really havent learned anything new. If you want your child to go here, please be prepared to work with your child in learning new curriculum due to them not adequately learning the information in class.

I have had the unique experience of teaching students in both elite private schools and severely economically disadvantaged public schools. In neither setting were parents given as much freedom to impact their child's education as they are offered by RSCS. River Springs allows parents to work shoulder to shoulder with teachers to create unique, challenging, and lasting education plans and experiences. This is a school for teachers passionate about education, for students passionate about learning, and for families passionate about their childrens' potential.

When I was hired to be an Education Specialist with River Springs Charter School. I cried. I was elated. It was a dream come true. My four years of being on staff with River Springs has been the most rewarding years of my life in Education. I taught in a public school for 7 years, and I enjoyed it, but the experiences and relationships I have built working with River Springs staff and parents has been amazing. The parents who are homeschooling their kiddos are doing an amazing job. They have resources for all kinds of curriculum that will meet the needs of their individual students. I am so proud to be a part of this charter school.

We love being a part of the Temecula Student Center!! The emphasis on real learning in the classroom is helping to keep my students constantly engaged, and the outlet for creativity is wonderful! We haven't had a barrage of mindless worksheets sent home every night thanks to the school's 'homework must be meaningful' policy (a version of The Homework Myth book.) This has given our family time back to us, and we are really enjoying it!

I have been a River Springs homeschool parent for 5 years and I absolutely love all aspects of the school. Our family has taken advantage of this free alternative education by participating in Field Trips, Science Fairs, Parent Conferences and Spelling Bee's (to name a few). I especially enjoy the parent training that the school offers and the Enrichment classes my students have been able to participate in. This year we are trying a hybrid program with RSCS where we split the time between homeschool and classroom education. We couldn't be more pleased. There is tons of choice with RSCS- it is not a one size fits all environment like most schools. I wish more families would take advantage of this style of education, my children have soared.

I work with homeschool families at River Springs as an Educational Specialist. Working at RSCS has shown me that not all students reach their potential by attending traditional school. I love that RSCS offers parents the choice to explore homeschooling. The staff at RSCS works extremely hard to provide engaging activities, resources, and opportunities for its students. RSCS is a great choice for anyone interested in discovering and trying new ways to educate children.

I've been with River Springs since eighth grade. I am now a Junior and I have come so far since I first started. In public school I as a student did not get enough attention in the classroom, but at River Springs I get help with whatever is difficult gor me to comprehend. If it wasn't for my awesome Educational Specialist (ES) I don't think I would be the bright student I am today. This school has forever changed my life and I look forward to hopefully putting my children in this school one day!

My children attend the Murrieta Student Center - Casa Montessori Program. The Murrieta Student Center is unique because it offers a hybrid program that allows children to be homeschooled part-time & attend school part-time. Children in grades K-6 can homeschool 2 days/week & attend class 3 days/week or homeschool 3 days/week & attend class 2 days/week. The school offers full-day Kindergarten as well. Admission is free since this is a public charter school. River Springs is the largest charter school in the state of CA. It has student centers in many cities, which I belive skews the overall test score results posted on Great Schools. River Springs offers full-time, 100% homeschool, hybrid, & part-time enrichment programs. Regardless of the program the child is enrolled in, standardized testing is required. The Great Schools rating of "4" for this school accounts for standardized test results of ALL students from ALL student centers combined ,regardless of the program they're enrolled in. You can call each school to find out their individual API.

I have worked at this school for the last 10 years and have seen tremendous growth over that time. I have watched as teachers worked one on one with students to help them be successful and have heard the wonderful reports from students who have turned their academic lives around and have succeeded when they weren't in the traditional schools. Teachers in this school work hard at personalizing the learning for every student and though it is often difficult, the students appreciate the time and effort that the teachers put into helping them. I work in the Independent Study high school program and we are helping students become independent learners.

For the first time i feel like my math teacher wants me to sucssed. I currently have an A in Alg. II and a 3.7 GPA.

I m a Keys High School student at River Springs and this is my first year. The main reason I'm at RS is because my grades at my old school were pretty bad. I was unorganized, couldn't stay on top of my work, and was too distracted by others. Only one of the teachers kept her website up to date. My mom set up meetings to see what we could do to get my grades up, but only one teacher had ideas. Their answer was I should just pay better attention. I ended up failing two classes and barely passed the others. I had to change schools because I was in danger of not graduating on time. The Keys Program was the best choice because I can stay more focused on my work. My classes are independent study, at a site, and online. I meet with my Keys teacher weekly to go over my work and I get extra help if I need it. I'm more organized, know exactly what I m supposed to do, and I schedule my day to do any subject that needs the most focus. Most important, my grades have gone way up, and I'm on track to graduate! I like feeling successful, and I like the one-on-one attention I get from my River Springs teacher. I m really happy to be a River Springs student and can t wait to graduate in 2015.

My husband and needed guidance and instruction addressing the unique needs of one of our children. We began homeschooling and saw first- hand the challenges ahead. Our ES listened and offered suggestions, and helped set up appointments with personnel who could offer more extensive testing and evaluations. The staff was patient and kind. Our daughter she was felt comfortable and cared for. Many of the sessions were made to be fun . I was nervous because of the unknown territory we were embarking upon, but was constantly reassured. We were assigned to a wonderful and caring woman who is still working with us today. She works two hours a week with our child .I also found a reading specialist through the River Springs Vendor list who adds another two hours of help. I appreciate having these resources at my finger tips and with the use of flex-funds; my personal costs are greatly offset. RSCS has been an organization available to help us, and others like us, along our educational journey.

Despite being only one B away from straight A s all three years of middle school, high school started out very stressful for me. I had a C in English, was struggling in Algebra II and having a lot of problems with my friends and classmates. I was feeling very lost and hopeless. My mom, trying to help me get through it all, suggested that I switch to River Springs. Despite everything, I still didn t want to start all over again and I definitely didn't want to wear a uniform! However, within the first week or two, I had already made a lot of good friends. I was surprised at how kind and friendly everyone was. With approx 100 kids at the Hemet site, teachers can concentrate on individual students, instead of struggling just to remember their names. River Springs has made a huge impact on my life. Now, I have straight A s (thanks to the great teachers), and I am also taking CTE medical classes. I feel that River Springs truly guides students into their future - getting into college, getting a job, and living an all around successful life. Any student that is, or ever will attend River Springs Charter School, including me, is lucky to be a part of such a fantastic school.

My husband and I never expected to be homeschool parents, but after having our children in the traditional school in our area we decided that homeschool would best fit our family. We love that as homeschoolers we are able to align our children s interests and passions with their education. For example, my son loves science and engineering and is able to participate in science labs every week and a Lego simple machines class at the Riverside Student Center. My daughter loves horses and is able to take horseback riding lessons and study about horsemanship and equestrian related sciences. One of the areas that we appreciate with RSCS is that there is accountability to the State Standards. It is important to my husband and I that our children are competitive with traditional school kids and that they are working at grade level. River Springs supports these efforts with the I CANs and a new assessment tool; OARS. My kids diligently work on assignments when they know they are I CANs because RSCS offers awards and incentives for completing the standards.

My husband and I chose to school with River Springs after reading the director's mission statement, navigating their website and visiting their learning center. During our seven years of enrollment, River Springs has exceeded expectations. River Springs organizes monthly field trips, hosts parent trainings, community gatherings, and provides support through regular meetings with credentialed teachers. At the beginning of the year, the school hosts a parent conference at Pechanga; throughout the year at various locations, RSCS offers classes designed to train parents as teachers. River Springs provides support through online subscriptions such as Scantron tests and worksheets, ALEKS and IXL math, Enchanted Learning, Discovery Education and Brain Pop. We would not have access to these subscriptions if we were not enrolled with RSCS. The most valuable part of RSCS is its learning centers. Students can attend enrichment classes while parents get a break. Our family has greatly benefited from our choice to school with River Springs. I am confident that this school and its support systems have enabled and encouraged us to educate at home with excellence for the past seven years.

I have been a part of River Springs @ the Magnolia Academy for 5 school years. I have 2 children who are currently in 5th and 6th grade. When I was initially looking for a school for my children to enter in Kindergarten, I honestly didn t know what to look for. I would say that I actually knew what I didn t want more than what I did want. I didn t want my children to become a faceless number in the school system. I knew that I didn t want them to go to a school that was unsafe, overcrowded, or heavily weighted in one demographic or another. And I knew that I didn t want my children to go to a school that did not prepare them for higher education. I knew that raising my children to become independent learners was at the top of my list of wants, but how to find a school to meet all of my criteria was beyond me. Did that school even exist? River Springs Charter School has been that school for me. RSCS had really opened my eyes to the way a school should be. I walk on campus knowing that if there is any issue I will be immediately aware of it. Any questions, I will be called. Any needs will be met. And any new ideas will be listened to. That is a great feeling.

We have been a part of River Springs Charter for four years, and have received excellent help in every area of our daughter's education process. Through the guidance of the Education Specialists, and the many programs offered through the Homeschool program at RSCS, we have received excellent advice in curriculum and in finding creative learning tools. The teachers at RSCS have always gone out of their way to help us attain our goals, not only by suggesting relevant curriculum, but also by offering suggestions for field trips and projects to help my student learn. Additionally, I have learned much about improving my own teaching techniques and effectiveness through the Parent Certification Program. The classes that have been presented to us as parent/teachers have been valuable, collegiate-level courses. I have found RSCS to be made up of an exceptional group of teachers who whole-heartedly love to teach, and to see children succeed in this world we live in. The field trips are excellent, the reward programs are very encouraging for the students, and the guidance given for CA State Standards testing has been invaluable to the students and parents alike.

As the art teacher at the school, the administration is doing everything possible to bring technology to the classroom. We just purchase computers that are fully loaded with Creative Suite (Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign and Dreamweaver), and I now teach, Digital Imaging for the High School. We have over 120 Google Chrome computers that are used regularly in the classrooms. In middle school, there is a FT staff member and a PT teacher who teach Technology. I also teach Photography and we allow the students to use their cell phones (real life situations) although we have purchased cameras for the trickier photo shots. I can vouch we try to allow the cell phones when appropriate, such as "googling" information students need. The parent who complained about the use of technology or cell phones, I can only say EVERY school in America has had to "rethink" cell phone use in the classroom. It is a technology that teachers should be able to make use of. However, students can abuse the right and we must safeguard against the abuse. Technology in the classroom is here to stay, and schools are learning to incorporate the newest technology while watching their budgets.

I sure disagree with the previous poster about the school's staff. Gossiping on the walkie-talkies? really? Gosh, I don't see how they could know that for a fact, first of all, and secondly they do a great job, regardless of how they're dressed which is nothing that is subpar whatsoever. My son has been in the school since 2006 and it's been t he best decision I've ever made. I have two adult children and I've tried all kinds of different schools and curriculums and this by far has been the best. The teachers are amazing. The staff is incredible and learn who your child is and are so compassionate and personal. They truly care. The people that direct traffic are terrific and we're lucky to have them. The handicapped spaces are always available except directly afterschool when you have the choice to directly pull up and pick up your child or park and walk in to pick them up. The cones are appropriately placed so that pedestrian traffic can get by. I am grateful to have found this school and can't imagine my son doing so well anywhere else. :)

My children have attended the Murrieta student center's Montessori program since 2009 when we moved to the area, and our family could not be happier with the education they are receiving at River Springs. We find the home study program works seamlessly with what is covered in classrooms. The teachers are phenomenal and truly dedicated to their students. Both of my children love going to school. The curriculum is highly individualized and keeps students challenged. The overall atmosphere is very positive. The other children are kind and tolerant and it is a wonderful place to learn. We love River Springs and highly recommend the Montessori program.

This school focuses on students. They teach kids how to learn and how to set and reach goals. I think that kids who experience a hybrid learning approach like at River Springs (three days in the classroom and 2 days at home) do better in their adult lives because they have learned how to manage their time and pursue their interests. I am so happy with this high school program!

We attend the Hemet quest campus. I have to say that this would have been an amazing success if not for the massive enrollment. We were told there would be no more then 28 students per class and then there were 38 kindergarten and 60 second graders. This led to new hires to acomidate the kids and its just too many children for such a small campus. There is not enough supervision either. On the other hand this has made us parents rally together to support the school and lend a lot of help to the staff. Despite my many complaints and issues with the school the community that has developed is fantastic. I still choose this over public school.

I brought my student to Charter Springs Academy in Riverside and was highly disappointed. The teachers yell at the students virtually everyday. They do not teach very well and there is little to no communication with the parent. I believed I would still have a handle on the classwork and achievements, but it turned out to be about the same as public school. It would have been nice to be kept in the loop, INSTEAD OF BEING TRULY MORTIFIED BY THE GRADES WHEN THEY CAME IN THE MAIL! Now the grades are out and I find out mine and other students had no idea what to do in class.

I have been trying to find out more information regarding their homeschooling program. It has been incredibly difficult to get the right information from the people on the phone. My sister and I also had a very rude lady speak to us on the phone. She was acting like we were bothering her and gave us inaccurate information. I am very disappointed because the website looked great. We were trying to speak to the Temecula office location. I also decided to try to overlook the receptionist rude attitude and went on a school tour. During this, I heard another teacher speaking very rudely to a young elementary school student. I guess I will be looking for another school.

We are simply attempting to look into getting our daughter enrolled and have experienced nothing but flakiness at every turn. How do they even stay open? We began the process in DECEMBER to enroll our daughter for school beginning August 2011-2012. There have been instances when there is only one person at the entire school who is trained or has access to what would seem to be very simple information ("What programs are available?" "Can you check the status of my child's application?") So if that particular person quits, the school grinds to a halt? You couldn't run a business this way (at least not one you wanted to stay open more than a few weeks.) We have hit several impasses waiting WEEKS (literally) for phone calls or emails to be returned. We waited three months with multiple calls and emails weekly just to schedule a campus tour. Now once again it's the daily phone calls to some phantom person who is apparently the only person in the entire school who can tell me if she's enrolled or not. I am about to give up before even starting because my blood pressure might not be able to take having her attend a school like this.

Protocol changes way too often, as do student/parent expectations. Teachers are disorganized and overwhelmed. Little to no flexibility with schedule; too rigid.

Great homeschool program, have been homeschooling two of my children for three years. I have too many positive things to say about the homeschool program, but would have to caution parents to stay clear of the Da Vinchi middle school in Lake Elsinore(disapointing, to say the least). My son was enrolled for one semester, but had to pull him out. Do your research before enrolling your child into any charter school, they are all different, and run by different people (I have heard good things from parents/students about other River Springs sites)

We have been homeschooling our kids for 5 years now with RSCS and I can honestly say that this is an amazing school! The school provides a wonderful opportunity for student growth... In not only allows students to learn at their own pace/level while still meeting state standards it's focus is on the student's individual learning style, strengths and weaknesses. There are numerous choices for homeschool students. Kids can attend student centers, workshops, elective classes, field trips, and even take online courses! You have the freedom to choose your child's curriculum or use one they've set up for you... Parent/student involvement is not only encouraged but welcomed... We love this school and our E.S. (teacher) is the best! It is so awesome to share our homeschool journey with the same teacher each year. She gets to see them develop and grow academically each year.
