Principal Hinijosa is focused on challenging the children academically and by pushing them to be determined to over exceed expectations in and outside of the classroom. Overall the school is persistent and determined to have their students become college bound scholars.
This is a great school for the Grand Rapids community. I have had the pleasure of being able to volunteer at the school and meet the parents of the PTO. In addition, the principal Ms. Hinijosa is very focused on the children exceeding and over performing academically. The office staff is extremely helpful and the deans are focused on the children's academic success. Also, the building is very beautiful, and the classrooms have so many amenities for the children (i.e. smart boards) , and the free lunch for everyone policy is so helpful for the students/ parents. Overall, this school is truly the home of College Bound Scholars.
River City is such an exciting place! The new leadership team has put so many wonderful initiatives into place, and is working so hard to make the school a center for the community! I see how proud the students are to be learning college readiness, and my most favorite thing are the virtues of honesty, integrity, respect, etc.. that they are weaving into every class. I volunteer there quite often, and every time I leave I cant wait to come back! I only wish I had children young enough to enroll!
