As a former student at RVMS, I have nothing but positive things to say about the teachers, the programs/classes offered, and the quality education. Making the move from elementary school to middle school may sound scary but isn't as bad as it may seem thanks to the school scheduling tours, and pre-enrollments allowing students and parents to get to see the school and know the teachers. I had a great relationship with all my teachers as we had smaller classes and more one-to-one time with each student. Elective classes range from learning how to play chess, all the way to news writing, and back to crime scene analysis. The sports program for the entire USD 309 district is phenomenal as is the art program at RVMS. If your child is getting ready to make the transition into middle school, RVMS is really worth having a look!
