My child and my child's classmates were all suspended for 9 days out of school for simply talking after everyone in the classroom had finished testing. This was the principal's decision of consequence. The goal of the school staff is supposed to be seeing that our children are getting an education. How can this happen when they impose out of school suspensions for the most insignificant of infractions? Children are suspended for anything and everything at this school. Suspensions have a devastating impact on a child's ability to get a complete education. When I was a child in school my schools reserved suspension for the most grievous offenses such as physically assaulting another student. I am absolutely disgusted that this school imposes consequences harmful to our children's education. If your child is a robot then send them to this school.

I have three students to attend Riverdale, and have been very pleased. The principal doesn't play the radio. The school is a reflection of the community, so don't complain if you are not going tom step up and raise your children.

This school is bad especially on Team 7A Hall, Dr. Daniel is a good teacher she teaches ELA and she controls that hall. Mr. Grant is horrible he lets the students do whatever they want and he teaches Math. Mrs. Foreman is terrible all she does tell them to "be quiet" but they just keep yelling and screaming the class, she teaches Science. Mrs. Moultrie is okay but she really doesnt do much she teaches Social Studies.

This is school is bad!! Do not send your child here, why? Because the teachers dont teach you nothing, all you do is write. And if you pretty then you need to watch your back because them girl will try to jump on you. This one boy (this year Isreal Price) was beaten and bullied in the restroom and nothing was really done about it at school.. So no do not send your child here for school..

I am proud to say I am a Spartan parent. My daughter will be starting the 8th grade, and my son will start 6th grade. I too heard the negative publiciy about the school, but my wife and I decided to equip our daughter the best we could, and made a commitment to be as involved as we were at the elementary school. GETTING INVOLVED IS THE KEY. Everyone there, from the principal all the way down, knows we'll give full support when called upon, and will ask questions when something doesn't sound or look right. Again, I am PROUD to be a SPARTAN PARENT!!!!

Sorry, I agree with the 4/1/2008 post - this is not a good school. Communication and organization is very bad. My review will be very long if I explain my story - so I'll be brief. 1st, the correspondences sent to me, from this school, appears to be written by someone in high school. 2nd, after taking time off from work, to visit this school, my daughter's teachers did not communicate to me about her grades. I m very happy she don t go to that school any longer.

Riverdale Middle is one of the best schools in the district. There are a lot of caring teachers and staff members at the school especially on the seventh grade. This year hopefully will be the year that they make AYP for 3 years in a row. The school has wonderful programming going on with their Math night, Sass/Gents program, Morehouse as well as many other programs for young people. I would recommend this school highly. You also can't rate the school low because it does not have a nurse. Many schools in Clayton County do not have a nurse.

This is one of the worst schools in the community. The teachers don't care, they are more worried about titles. It is simply not a place for educational purpose. Parents need to fight to get their children a better quality of education. NOW.

I forgot to metion in my previous review that i have never in my entire life seen so many schools with no nurses in the school.We moved from up north and this is un herd of and rediculious.If your child has a stomach ache,headache,dizzy,whezzing,fever,or any little thing that a nurse could take care of if they had one.Instead of immediately caliing the parents when they could lie down for a while or take a tylenol with parents permission.Guess its to bad cause they just have your child call home or work to pick them up.To bad for working parents that have to take off just because the fail at what our should be entitled to.I do not recommend this school to anyone.My childs grades has droped extremly sense we moved to GA like 3 letter grades.

We need more parents participation, along with corporate sponsors. I would like the school to form a baseball team. Let's use this baseball field.
