We love this school. It is a small school but this lets the teachers really know their students and their strengths and weaknesses and how to help them learn and grow. They truly love and care for the students as if they were their own. We are like a family. The teachers are open to hearing new ideas and things to try in the classroom and we are always working to improve. The classrooms are combined but this allows for the students to learn more as they hear about what the older students are learning. It works really well. The Christian atmosphere is great as well. Starting and ending each day with prayer and the teachers are more than happy to pray with their students individually if they have anything they want to pray about. We do several field trips a year, ski trips, PE programs, Science Fair and we have a science lab, computer lab and gym. Great school and we love it here!!!

I have been really impressed with this school as I've seen in operating in the last few months. It is a small school, which provides a unique atmosphere. The size facilitates an environment where the teachers really can care for their students, and can provide more unique learning opportunities. There are quite a few parents that volunteer their time and add their time and experience to the classroom. Last but not least is the Christian lessons that are modeled and taught. This is a great place to foster a relationship with Jesus Christ

This is a really great school. We have a christian based curriculum, great students and teachers. Everyone here works as a team to make this a great learning environment. The classrooms are small so there is more one on one with each student. They are also mixed grades so everyone learns a little more that they usually would.

I really appreciate the personal attention my kids get at Riverview. The small class size and family like atmosphere create a safe and wholesome learning environment that allows kids to grow and thrive. The academics are excellent and the students are challenged. This christ centered school is the perfect place for my kids.

I am impressed with the way the teachers are teaching multiple grades at this school in the same classroom. I love the location and the environment. The main thing about the school is that Christ is the main focus.

The teachers are well educated. The class size is small so te students get extra attention from the teachers. They have a science room & computer lab.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
