Grandparent of a student: My granddaughter broke both of her wrists and the school and the staff was wonderful with her on working through her homework and going back to school with cast on. They were very understanding and I am glad she is going to that school. Thank you, Sherri February, March, and April 2015

This school is about the staff and not so much focused Ono the children,the girls and boys basketball team won championship and they weren't applauded for that and that should say a lot all by it self. Some staff are very nice others can be very rude,that is not setting examples for the children that be hanging out early in the morning or in the late afternoon unsupervised with all of the profanity that goes on.I am so happy I have removed my child from this school!

Hi I am a student and I have Been at this school for 2 years. I am now going into 8th grade. Over all I love all of my teachers and the staff. The only thing I wish they would crack down on is the bullying I have been getting bullied for the past two years. They do try to help but it doesn't always help. But over all I love this school and the staff and when I leave for high school I will miss everyone here.

My son attends this school and has mild autism. The experience I have had with him and this school has been amazing. The teachers and support staff that my son and that I deal with are great. They are very compassionate and wonderful people. My experience with River Springs Middle has been wonderful! I am so grateful for all they have done for my son and my family.

I have to say I am truly disappointed in this school. There is no communication between the school and parents. If I call the school to express any concern or a complaint, you would think the principal would contact the parent back to address issues but that is not the case. The school year is drawing to a close and I don't believe I have seen the principal one time throughout the school year and I am at the school daily dropping off and picking up my child. It's almost as though the principal intentionally hides and avoids the parents. Any emails to teachers generally go left unanswered by staff. Also, I am utterly disgusted at the amount of bullying and violence that goes on at this school. My child has been hit on numerous occasions. Teachers turn a blind eye to the problem children and, when I report it, I'm constantly told that there is a "no hitting" policy and the school has a bully awareness program. If a student tries to report being hit, the staff has a tendency to refuse to listen and just 'sentence' the students to detention (even the child who was being hit and not hitting others). I don't see any potential for this school without new admin and staff changes first.

My son has attended this school for three years. Overall, we've been very pleased. They run a pretty tight ship, discipline-wise. I appreciate that and feel confident that my son is safe while at school. Most of the teachers are good and communicated with us in a positive way. We were mostly disappointed in the science teachers; not one of them has been enthused or effective in that subject. Sad, because we had hoped that science in middle school would be more interactive and interesting than in elementary. I know a number of families who have had kids attend other middle schools in West Volusia, and I've heard lots of tales of non-communicative teachers, daily fights, and kids hating to go to school. We don't find this to be so here. I truly believe River Springs is one of the best middle schools around..

My step daughter goes to this school and the school has issues. On the surface they appear to want to help you but in reality their communication is terrible. We have been involved parents and its a shame they just pass this kid along to get her into high school. She did a math page got 6 out of 9 wrong they corrected it in class. I found the paper in her bookbag wrote the same problems on another sheet of paper she had no clue how to do it. Find work un-done in her bookbag school says she getting b's and c's but cant do the work when I put it in front of her

This school may be new but there are teachers there that are stale minded, abrasive and bias.I believe this school may be filled with the muck from other schools who removed them from their faculty. I do like that they enforce the dress code and conduct. The principal is hardly and doesn't return calls, his secretary and receptionist are aloof. I really thought it was going to be a productive environment but Intro to Tech all that was learned was how to put legos together and watching the teacher's home movies.

It's my second year at the school and I think that it's fair to say that this isn't really the best school. The teachers are scary. And it seems that only the male teachers can't keep their classes quiet, in one of my classes, we aren't given much work and the only thing that kids do is talk (the teacher doesn't care either). As for the gym, with one of the coaches, you are expected to run a mile in under twelve minutes or you're running it again the next day, which isn't really fair for the larger kids. Needless to say, I don't wake up every morning excited for school.

I really like the school, and, as an 8th grader, i think they plan a lot of fun things to do, like dances and field days. They should have better elective choices, but the school isn't perfect.

I am so happy with this school. I wish there were more options for children regarding their electives.
