My school is amazing. After moving from a large school of bullies, I expected to be treated the same here. But in reality, almost everybody is extremely nice. The teachers and students alike are all friendly and caring. I made about 30 friends on day one. On the first day, I felt too afraid to sit with people I'd met at lunch, so I sat alone, despite my panic attacks from loneliness. A(n also new) sweet girl came and sat with me, and she turned up to be my best friend. I have at least 150 friends now, almost my entire grade. The only bad kids are a group of them, and when they get into trouble, the teachers send them straight to the office for suspensions (it's actually a bootcamp-like alternative to suspension) or weeks of lunch detention. I took in a girl from that group, and she's not actually that mean, she just felt pressured by her "friends". The only thing this school could improve on is the lack of student engagement and fundraisers. The most that's happened this year are two school dances, and students protested against the lack of a talent show (we're getting one C:).
Working at RCMS is a joy! We are a team, and it shows. We love working with the students, parents, and community.
This school is really great and the staff here is really nice. The new girl in my class said that when she met some new friends, she felt right at home.
M daughter attends this school and since we've moved here she has had a wonderful time! Keep it up River City Middle school! Keep it up River city Middle School!
