River Bend is a friendly school. I have been disappointed in how they treat my son who has been diagnosed with ADHD since mid kindergarten. The school counselor pushed us very hard to medicate our 5 year old even suggested doctor shopping when our pediatrician resisted. We now have an IEP and get resources for him in reading and writing. They have no resources for math. First grade has been difficult as well. We are still urged at every meeting to medicate. He was passed over for the federal reading intervention program but later qualified. This has helped tremendously. In a short time his reading level has grown significantly. I respect the principal. Teachers are ok. Special school district and reading intervention is awesome.
wonderful spec ed program and also have an Early Childhood class there now too which my daughter attended.
Great School and small which is nice! Have son in spec ed and they have a wonderful spec ed program and also have an Early Childhood class there now too which my daughter attended. The whole school staff from the principal on down really cares for the kids! Unfortunately my son had to have a placement change. We will miss River Bend!
this is an outstanding exemplary school. The Teachers are some of the best in the state. my son has exclled to a higher standered of learning. He enjoys the atmospher and the teachers are very well adapted to their enviornment. I believe that this school deserves more recogntion than it has give.
