Our son was in a private school in Michigan and we were concerned that he wouldn't fit in here. Boy, were we surprised. The principal is awesome. The curriculum is stellar. The teachers are amazing. I can't say enough. A private school-level education (and more!) in a public school setting. These teachers know their craft.

We are a new family at JW Riley but so far we are very happy with the school. My son who entered kindergarten in August 2006 has been growing academically and learning by leaps and bounds in so many areas. Plus he adores his teacher!

Want to improve this school's profile?

All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.
