I have two kids in this school and they are really happy and very successful. I am proud of them and blessed with this school.
Rcsa is by far the worst school in Duval county, the school is all about getting into high officials pockets(check out the gullen movement). The school lets people run the academics who have no idea how to connect with students. The school is more concerned with money than the students education. The school also forces students off campus when it's over, so if you're a parent and you're running late then you can pick your child up on the busiest road in Jacksonville. Students are the least of the schools concern, it's all about your money.
We believe we found the right school for our children. Concentrating on science and college is what we have been looking for.
This school is (was) great, my children have attended this school for four years. The new principal Mr. Oz, I think it is, is not a really motivating individual. I think he has brought the morale down in High School, trying to take away sports and any other activity the kids may enjoy. If this principal is there next school year, we would be better off allowing the children to attend local the local high school. my stars are based on the school as a whole.
Does not matter how dedicated the teachers are, you will not be allowed to stay, if you do not bend to the will of the new prinipal. Ask why the best teachers left or were fired. A better group of teachers could not be found, but he did not respect them or the students or their parents. Don't be fooled. They only did well this year because of the dedicated staff, but next year will tell the story....
Dedicated staff great learning environment that is strict for some.....You need to follow rules in this school. It is hard to stay as a teacher without dedication.
I really don't like this school. the rules sucks. We are not allowed to use our phone or wear whatever we want and the teachers are so rude , also students as well.
As soon as the last car leaves from picking up students the other children are kicked off campus to stand out by the street. Rude office worker.
My School is the best in Duval County. Strong academics with caring staff. They give more than 100% always. My kids are very happy and like to go to school.
This school is awful. I've been a student since the second year it has been open and it's literally so unorganized and unprofessional. The teachers are great, don't get me wrong, but the administration is so haywire and all over the place. I will NOT be returning for my senior year because I now have to fix my grades and everything that this school has screwed up along the way due to their mistakes.
This school is great, the teachers are very friendly. My kids love their school. You don't have to worry about bullies at this school.
Best school good teacher and staf very helpful .Kids are happy to go to this school every day .
Everybody who comes here is amazed how friendly and calm the kids are. One can feel the atmosphere of integrity here. I am very happy with my son's teachers and the school in general. Thanks, RCSA. :)
We are like a family here. It's very difficult to find this safe environment in other schools. Happy to be at RCSA.
My sons' school is River City Science Academy. I am completely satisfied with his AP and Honors courses. I do regret society has banished Science fairs with actual (potentially slightly dangerous) science projects for all to see and be inspired by, but that is not a school specific policy. I am impressed with the level of order maintained and the swift correction of those accustomed to chaos. I kinda wish it to remain a secret!
This school is Amazing! They are so focused on having their students achieve the very best, and their expectations on the kids is very high which is wonderful. The entire school is focused on excellence. They are truly top-notch.
Excellent academic program. Great to have a school that focuses primarily on academics rather than sports. Students are held accountable for their work. Students are encouraged to participate in Science Olympiad, County Science and History fairs and AP classes.
RCSA has been a blessing to my family since they've opened their doors! They are the most compassionate, enthusiastic and genuine bunch of teachers I've ever met. They truly care about their students and giving them all the tools and opportunities to succeed. Love them! Both my girls go there!
River City Science Academy is a wonderful school my son has been a student there since 6th grade and is now in 9th grade, the Teachers and staff care about the kids, there is nice programs after school for students to attend free of charge.
THIS SCHOOL HAS EXCELLENT ENVIRONMENT FOR ITS STAFF, STUDENTS AND PARENTS. SERVERS GREAT MINDS. GO ROCKETS!!!
