Both of my children have attended River City Science Academy since kindergarten and have been there for almost five years. I can not express enough how amazing our personal experiences have been and how pleased we ALL are with the school, teachers, parents, administrators, and staff. It's true, the academic pace is fast and best suited to children who pick up new information quickly, retain it well, and make use of that information readily and without much repetition. While there are many areas for a child to excel, this is a school for the STEM focus also River City Science Academy does have wonderful "specials" opportunities in music, art, and sports and many many more.

I have two kids at rcsa and I hope they will go to the best universities. College information night was very successful, I really learned a lot. Thank you!

This school is just a wonderful place, especially for a STEM learner. We have felt so welcomed and part of a community of talented teachers and students. My kids really needed the differentiation and extensions to the curriculum as well as the social emotional support provided at this school. The teachers could not be more dedicated and committed to helping each child reach his or her potential. What a special honor it is to be here! I suggest River City Science Academy to everyone who wants better education.

Great school. Instant access to student progress. Open, two-way communication. My son loves the school and his teachers. Highly recommend to parents who are looking for a free, private-like school.

Instant access to student progress is a great future. Athletic teams are growing. We are dying to see the gym completed. Thanks for the update...

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.
