Riviera Elementary School 2

This school has some serious issues. The first thing that bothers me is that the security in this school is non-existent. Anyone can walk into the school as the gates are wide open with no one there to stop you. Second, the office staff is extremely rude. The lady that greets you at the front is condescending towards parents. Lastly, the teachers are not provided with adequate technology. The classroom is always a mess when I go in there. My son's teacher is a very sweet and loving teacher and I think she just needs some support around to her. This school does fundraiser after fundraiser yet I see no improvements in the classroom or supplies available. I am thankful to be transferring my child to another school since we bought a new home.

I have two Daughters that attend this school for there first year and we all are very dissapointed in this school. Not only are the staff very unorganized but the teachers are not very friendly. We recieved a letter saying that we could switch schools due to Riviera failing in severral subjects according to the state average. We asked the front office for the application for school of choice every day for a week before we finnaly recieved it. we filled it out and then handed it in for them to fax over to the school of choice office and when we did not hear back we called the school of choice and they had not gotten our application. now the deadline has passed and our children have missed the chance to change to a good school. We also have had problems with bullys and bad language.

The staff at Riviera Elementary are wonderful. Many work long hours well outside of a regular school day. They are constantly looking for ways to improve student education and growth. My child has been there 5 1/2 years and I will say I never realized how much caring and effort the staff puts forth before volunteering myself this year. If you really want to know a school, become a volunteer. Riviera welcomes any and all time you can spare and your child(ren) will be thrilled that you care enough about them and their school to come in and help out. To any negative reviewer of any school: Don't throw stones unless you've been on the 'other side of the counter'. It will truly open your eyes.

I am not impressed with this school at all. I have 2 boys ages 5 and 10 in this school. The school buses are always late in the mornings, with 4 differ drivers. My boys have to take their breakfast to class cause the cafateria is closing up. The nurse has called me several times cause my youngest has been complaining of a stomach ache, yet when I get there..I find he just wants to come home cause he is not comfortable there. His teacher dislikes the fact the he was never put in any daycare or pre-K and litteraly is judgemental instead of doing her job to teach. They sent him home with uniform tops that were too big and cannot correct it cause they are out? How is that possible? I cannot wait to find them a better school!

This school is an A school. It has lots of activities for the parents, students & faculty to get together & have fun while learning. My son loves going there & he has excelled because of it.
