Wonderful school, my kids love it and so do I we moved for 8 months to the Monticello school district due to my job, my kids missed Riverside and were so happy we moved back. The staff is wonderful and they have a phenomenal program for children with special needs. Proud to be a Riverside Parent

notice how the last review was in 2007. this summer i read some reviews that didnt give this school 5 stars. those comments have been removed. hmm... now lets try again give this school a rating based on current test scores & stats... in 2006 i gave this school 5 stars, last couple yrs it has gone downhill fast. sorry this is my parental opinion.

My son just finished kindergarten and my youngest starts kindergarten in the fall, I could not be happier with this school. The teachers are awesome, but more importantly, the principal is warm, responsive, and proactive. In a world that increasingly filters everything for political correctness, this school revels in the joy of childhood traditions that make being a kid a magical time. Halloween parades, not debates of cult undertones, Santa visiting the classroom, not striking 'Christmas' from their vocabulary, and the traditional Pledge of Allegiance, yes, with under god, in it. I didn't know it was said in school until my 6 year old was reciting it the other day while he played. I feel so lucky to have my kids in this school, and so lucky to have Mr. Aulie and Principal Engler in my corner, educating my kids. Yahoo!

Quality is second to none. Teachers are fantastic with the kids. Atmosphere is terrific. This is one of those schools that people want to have their kid in.

I think that Riverside is a wonderful school. The academics are unquestionable first class. The teachers are great, very open, and forth coming about your childs progress and needs. I wouldn't hesitate about sending your child here. The families are good families! And we all know that friends are important! A++ school.
