best school my kids have been in. they give the personal touch to let every child know that they are special. my son came here as a third grader that couldn't read yet and was a little bit of a trouble maker with no friends. everything changed at riverside! he was thrilled the day he brought home a book that he could read to us. and so were we. mr. badman, the principal, said he doesn't look into the childs folder as far as behavior issues. he said he likes for them to have a fresh start. it worked, my son made several friends and was even adored by teachers and staff. he loved to help the lunch lady every morning after breakfast. it was his 'job' to help her clean up. we will miss them sooooooo much. no one can compare!
