excellent principal, dedicated teachers & staff. very safe location. orderly & well behaved children.
Riverhills Elementary School is definately a place that has a caring staff and when I say staff, I mean everyone...the principal, a.p., lunchroom workers, teachers and custodians. Every day when I go through the halls, people are communicating and everyone always looks so happy. The happiness around the school rubs off on the students, and there are truly not any discipline problems that parents should worry about. All of the students are very happy and learning alot. The school grade is a B, but they are meeting the needs of all of their students and made Academic Yearly Progress which is harder than going up a letter grade...You will love this school and the staff!
My grandkids have been attending Riverhills for 2 years. I can honestly say I have had more good experiences with Riverhills than bad. I am a working grandma and can not always make the events however, I am there for meetings and certain family participation. You also have to factor that most of the parents probably are working parents and it is not always easy to get away, especially if you do not have a flexible job. I am very blessed to have job flexibility and still can not make all the events. Bottom line, you can participate in all the school functions but if you do not have a solid foundation at home, no amount of meetings will make your child a 'good' student.
My son has been at Riverhills for 4yrs. I am trying to learn as much as I can about the school and how it all works, so I can be a better informed parent. My son has had a great time and very good experiances at the school. I am sure they will only get better.
I don't feel like this school is challenging enough for my child. Talking with other parents who have children in the same grade, my child has easier work. I feel the other children at the school are in the same boat. It seams as though there are disruptions in many of the classrooms. I feel if the children were challenged more there would not be as many disruptions. Also there is poor parent participation. Seeing many of the parents and how they carry themselves it is no wonder why the children act out. The parents don't have any respect for the teachers or administration either. I don't think they realize these children are a smaller version of themselves. There is a plus to this school, the administration and teachers are very nice. I think alot of the schools problems has to do with the parents. Better parents make better children.
