This is my sons second tear at Riverview and I have seen nothing bad about the school, except for a non existent PTA, and very poor parent involvement. I hope to help improve this, and have nothing bad to say about the teachers I have encountered!

This is a good school. My children love it and the staff and teachers are evry committed to helping not just the children but also the community.

Riverview Elementary School is not what I'd expect it to be for an Elementary school.. The teachers (most of them) really do not care about the children.. They talk down to and belittle the children in comparison to prior classes and even their own children.. The staff (again with the exception of a few) truly show no empathy for working with the younger group of children.. It's disheartening to actually be writing a "not so good" review about the school my own children attend, but SOMETHING needs to drastically change here at this place.. Maybe a whole new Fresh Start.. If that would even give this place a glimpse of hope for these children in this area that'd be the best.. I don't think this school even deserves a 2 out of 10 review.. I'm sorry but until there is some REAL amazing difference here I am going to have to stick with this opinion..

This school is turning around! High expectations for behavior and for learning. New attitude. New administration.

I have 2 daughter's that attend this school and it is the best school I could have chose for them. One is in 3rd grade and one is in 5th grade. The teacher's are 100% supportive and helpful!

This is a failing school in a troubled neighborhood. Student discipline is an issue, as well as permanent teacher shortages.

Unfortunately, I cannot give this school a high rating. I had a son in 5th and I worked in the school. The teacher staff is predominately young, willing to do new things, but they labor under several negatives. A low income neighborhood with a small minority of involved parents. The administration is overwhelmed with the behavioral issues of some of the students. As a result, when my son began to have educational problems due to health reasons, we were not accommodated at all. Everyone assumed that he was just another child who needed to 'try harder and apply himself. ' They were very jaded. The year ended on a negative note for both my son and I, and I was very happy he was moving on. On a positive note, I am going back to educate them on my son's medical issues, so another child will not suffer like we did.

I moved here from a rural school district. I am shocked by the way some children act in the classroom ex. kicking the teacher and going out in the hallway. I do not think it is all the schools or the teachers fault, but I am still disappointed that children with severe behavioral problems are allowed to disrupt the whole class. We have decided to pay more rent and move to what we hope will be a better place for our daughter.

My child transfered from a high performing school into this school. The teachers were extremely involved in making sure she was challenged and learning everyday- she is in the gifted & talented program. The staff is incredible under the circumstances. The neighborhood is not predominantly populated with parents who value education-very few made sure their children did their homework or showed up for parent/teacher conferences-those that did had students who excelled and/or got the help they needed- but the teachers and staff still work above and beyond to give each kid a chance. Some of the behavioral problems of this particular demographic of students impeded the progress in the classroom- the teachers try many methods to get the student back on track. The school does it's best-- but the community needs to improve.The teachers and staff and students need more support in this school.
