We just started this year, and we love Rivers Eve, it's a wonderful school! My kids are very happy, and the teachers they have are great. We will definitely stay through 5th grade!!
We moved to this area because I thought Rivers Eve was suppose to be a good school. It's only been a few weeks, and we're not too happy. The staff just doesn't seem to care, and the Principal is retiring and no one knows who the new Principal is going to be. Kids need a lot of love and I don't feel they offer it here. I doubt I will keep my kids there next year.
Horribly disappointed! Upon transferring my child to RE from out of state, they recommended my child attend an extended day program in Math and Reading, despite her grades from the previous school she attended. The idea of parent involvement at RE is limited to bake sales, clothing drives, and cleaning up after sock hops; PTA meetings held in the early mornings, when working parents are, well, working. Parents are not allowed to observe classes - ever. If your child is creative or used to nurturing evirons, please send them elsewhere.
My child has attended River Eves for 3 years. We were intially happy with the lower grades, but recently we have found teachers are teaching for the CRCT, and there is little creativity. My child is bored in most classes and the administration are not supportive of individualized education. This school focuses too much on discipline rather than encouraging children to explore. Unfortunately, I feel this school has taken away some of my child's love for learning.
Unless your child fits 'in the box' this school is not for you!These are children- they need respect, nuturing, behavioral modification,not disipline. Council, and understanding- not remarks to make them feel worse! The teachers could do well- if not for the jaded administration.
This school is very poor at helping parents with children with learning disabilities feel welcome, the teachers are not helpful neither are the counselors, I wish they had a program that addresses 'the issues' the students instead of just pushing them in the corner to be forgotten.
This school is racially divided. The teaching staff is not diverse. The PTA holds it's monthly meetings at 9:30 in the morning to exclude & discourage working parents from attending. The focus is not on helping minority kids excel but rather keep them behind. The office staff is not friendly, helpful nor kind to visitors. Overall the school is very poor.
Both my sons attended River Eves for a total of 8 years. We were happy with the teachers we had, the school is well run and safe. Parental involvement is excellent.
This is my daughter's first year and I am very impressed with the quality of the school. The teachers are very involved with the students and there are several activities so that parents can get involved. The quality of work they do is impressive. I am very happy with this school.
