Worse school ever I dislike riverdale so much it is extremely disorganized and bad for students. Most of the students there have no discipline what so ever. They are the worse children ever. This was my first public school I have ever went to and definitely the last one I will go to. NEXT STOP BROTHER MARTIN!
Riverdale Middle is a great school. I have had three children attend the school and could not have been more pleased. The IBO program provides outstanding opportunities for students to learn and develop. Other parents I have spoken to feel that the school is too strict, but I am grateful to have a public school that has as high a standard for behavior as it has for academics. The students are required to take courses each year in technology, art, and foreign language in conjunction with the standard curriculum that other middle schools offer. The atmosphere of the school has changed a great deal over the past few years with the establishment of the International Baccalaureate Program. If you are shopping around for a great school where your child will receive an excellent education, then you need to visit this school!
Riverdale Middle School in Jefferson LA is an absolutely awesome school. Riverdale Middle is an International Baccaulaureate School - in fact the only middle school on the East BAnk with that honor. The faculty and staff at the school are extremely caring and do their best to help each and every child reach his/her potential. It is the only middle school I know of that offers foreign language, piano, quilting, art, computer classes as electives to middle school students. The school is strict in that it expects the best out of each student. Following rules is what people should do, rather than a school having chaos. Any parent who has not visited RMS should schedule a tour to see this school during the school day. There is no screaming at students. It has to be the safest best run school anywhere. Schedule a tour to see for yourself.
i go to riverdale middle school. it is a wonderfull school. i love it it has so much to offer. so if youre putting your child in a school but youre still looking riverdlae middle school should be your first choice.
Riverdale Middle School is one of the most likely public school were kids will be influenced to suceed in life. The faculy members and staff are greatly miasmatic, and are very caring and concerned. Though they are strict, they do this for our own well-being. I will admit that they may be a little too strict, but that is only when they are worried about the student and the other pupils. The students are very excepting, and are kind to everyone. Not one student is put down there. Only on rare occasions do they get into small fights, but that happens at every school you go to. Riverdale gives the same education as one of the most finest private schools in the state, if not, more. The parents get very involved and they are a great help to the school. I have always been happy with Riverdale Middle School.
Honestly, as a student, I believe Riverdale isn't up to the correct standards. Teachers seemed to have not much experience in discipline over their own classes. Discipline is high-priority around school, but the consequences are too strict. Also, what I've seen around the school, this policy of discipline is not working so well. Yet, most of my teachers are capable of giving knowledge to their student. During lunch, there is a sugar shack that is usually open every day, where they sell certain kinds of snacks (although limited). But if your child plans to eat lunch at shool, I recommend you to have him bring his own lunch. From my opinion, out of all the schools around, this school is not what I recommend, and I've experienced the reasons at the school myself. Although the teachers are capable of giving their students a chance to learn, discipline is either too little or too strict at times.
My child seems to like Riverdale Middle School alot. He seems to be adjusting well and the staff are very nice. I just wanted to give credit where credit is deserved. Riverdale Middle school seems to make a difference in many students lives.
