I, too, will give this school 5 stars! Completely satisfied!! Riverfield Academy actually challenges my child to learn more and more and I LOVE it! The teachers are wonderful and I also love the closeness of the kids as well as the parents. You can't help but have a lot of pride for this school. I would recommend to any parent!!

I attended Riverfield Academy from 3rd grade until my graduation date. In this time I learned a great deal not only about history, grammar, and math... But about life. About the simple things that school doesn't teach. In the town of Rayville there is NO OTHER choice than Riverfield Academy, for education that is unsurpassed by any of the other area schools. I've read here that some students didn't think they were getting the education they deserved, so they left and went to a public school. They say they found themselves performing betting in public schooling. Did they ever stop to think... They were not performing well in Riverfield for a reason? Maybe the teaching was at a level this person couldn't identify with. Riverfield does teach outside of the basic concepts, especially in the earlier grades. I remember to this day in third grade trying to learn to spell 'miscellaneous'.

I went to riverfield for 13 years and did not get the education i deserved, because when i was there the teachers didn't want to teach it was just a really expesive day care for your kids!

I went to riverfield academy my 11th grade year and at the time of attending i felt it was very unfair wanted to go back to public school. But now that i have finnished school i can say im a proud graduate of riverfield academy and wish i would have attended all 13 years. Every student that graduated was on honor roll and got scholorships.. U dont see an entire public school 12th grade graduate with scholorships... Riverfield prepares you for life and things god and everything else....

I went to Riverfield Academy and got a great education. Not only did it prepare me for life, but also for future educational persuits. The administration works hard to prep their students for college.

I went to this school in my 4th grade year and to tell you the truth my mom paid alot of money for a bad school. I did not get a good enough education as I could have got in a public school. After that year I went to a public school and made honor roll all through jr high and high school!

I went to this school up until 6th grade and to tell you the honest truth it isn't that great. You pay alot of money for not that great of an education. It doesn't have many academic programs or music and art programs.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
