Sorry, but this school just doesn't live up to the NHA standard so far and I've tried to give it a chance knowing it's a new school. After moving here and having been at an NHA School previously, it's a let down. Bottom line: you can't essentially 're-open' a school in this neighborhood and not be prepared for the type of learning, behavioral, and cultural challenges you will face. I'll give them credit ; they tried, but a strong, tried and true method needs to be in place with teachers & parents working together. At my former school, a commitment was necessary. I didn't send my kids there because it was the nearestschool.

I give River City Scholars a Five Star rating, reason being, my grandsons(2) of them attend River City Scholars and I must say the teaching and learning style(s) are just magnificent. It causes me to re-educate myself in areas I thought I was good at. I thank everyone at River City Scholars for ALL of the time, effort, patience and cohesiveness they are applying in the lives of my and others children, I Salute You!!!

For a new school, River City Scholars is really good. So glad it is here now.
