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.
This is our first year at RSCA. I can't express how happy I am with the school.
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.
Great School my kids love it there. They have wonderful teachers. I love the hours.
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.
Even 7th grade kids are participating Saturday SAT courses. This explains a lot to me. Very happy with the level of education and safe environment.
THIS SCHOOL HAS EXCELLENT ENVIRONMENT FOR ITS STAFF, STUDENTS AND PARENTS. SERVERS GREAT MINDS. GO ROCKETS!!!
Sometimes there may be a bad apple in the bunch! I must admit that one of my kid s teachers is Awesome. On the other hand there is another teacher has no passion in what she does. Her class work is for daycare students! This is FAR BELOW my expectations of an A . It s good to have a friendly environment but its better with the kids are actually learning. I no longer believe all the hype I see posted on the reviews!!!! Yes the staff is GREAT but this Teacher needs another Job!!!
Hi! My son is a new 5th grade student at RCSA this year and he has come home every day so far telling our family how much he loves it here! He had trouble at his last school with one teacher mostly, and a few of the children. The first day at RCSA, he came home saying, "I love it here! I made some friends, the kids are nicer and a lot better behaved! And I like my teachers a lot!". Boy, that warmed my heart! My son even said that the days just fly right by because he's having such a good experience. We are so pleased and can't wait to see what the rest of the year brings! Thanks River City!
My son had E grades in reading and math in kindergarten at another school, but U in behavior. He did NOT like going to school. First word out of his mouth after Day 1 in first grade at RCSA was "Awesome, and I stayed on green all day!" (good behavior). Second day, he was so excited to go to school that he forgot to give us a kiss as he raced from the car to school. His teacher is supportive and attentive. We hope the rest of the year will go as well.
River City is an excellent school with teachers and staff who truly care for students education and overall development. I would highly recommend this school to any family in Jacksonville.
I am impressed with the level of expectations for the students at RCSA. The teachers staff and students are all dedicated to learning and challenging themselves each day.
I am so excited to be joining the staff at River City Science Academy. The faculty and staff are very kind, caring, and dedicated. I am also so impressed by the students and parents. Everyone is genuinely dedicated to the education of children!
RCSA has been a great fit for my children and our family. My kids are challenged and love the staff. This is our second year attending for both of our children and we have been very happy with the curriculum.
I feel blessed to have been informed about RCSA because the teachers and the staff are excellent. The additional guidance and assistance they provide to the students are by far the best. Also, they push the kids to think outside of the box, focusing on the future ahead of them. I love them.
My Children's School is Awesome, the teachers are helpful and willing to work with you to ensure that each child has a chance to succeed.
This school is always striving to be a top leader in educating children. It is an excellent school, providing an excellent education.
