My son left another school because of bullying. He has found Risco to be so peaceful and encouraging. His teacher, Mrs. Pavy, sends home weekly newsletters with the spelling words, vocabulary, and upcoming tests dates. She's awesome! She requires the kids to write out their multiplication tables twice a week. My son now knows them better than I do.

Classes are extremely small. The district has little money for improvement. Extracurriculars are difficult because school is so small and the number of students is limited. the parent involvemnet is wonderful. They come to every ball game and are very activer in their student's education.
