Riverwood International Charter School 5

I am not sure who is mad about Riverwood but the postings below are not accurate. My daughter is a 9th grader and really enjoying it. I asked her and she has not seen one fight at Riverwood this year. Her classes are very challenging but they are supposed to be. We could have put our child in a private school but have been happy with Riverwood.

Mr. Garrett. He always checks in on my son. I've known him since he was at elementary school. He really cares about the kids.

Could be better with communication, but do well in the classroom. My son has always liked his teachers and coaches.

There are a lot of academic requirements and programs here. I think too much. I don't understand the IB program.

Develops grit: Agree

tough to do with the type of student and parent here but they are trying. Students were removed from teams and activities for inappropriate behavior or not following team rules. The principal only rewards top achievers. The problem is parents complain if it is not their child. What parents complain about here is ridiculous.

Students are held accountable. Administrators enforce rules and have disciplined students. Kids are sent home for cursing.

Dr. Shaw is at every event. Always talking to the students about doing the right thing. He is trying to create a positive culture.

Students and teachers are held accountable. The lack of rules over the last few years created a climate of entitlement among parents and students. The new leadership is trying to break that.

Much of the information on the site is incorrect about the school profile. School finally has solid leadership team. They have had to spend a lot of time breaking bad habits in the school.

Mrs. Kopkas is by far one of the most respected and the most effective teavhers. She prepares the students very well to IB Litterature and cares about her students.
