The director, Nema LeCuyer, is one of the most compassionate, caring, sensitive, honorable individuals I have had the privilege of knowing for many years. Her beautiful heart expands with unconditional love for all beings. She is gifted with children, has immense experience in the field of education and is someone I would trust professionally and personally without question. If I had children, I would send them to Rivers Academy. If I was a child, Rivers Academy would be my refuge and my light at the end of the tunnel.

i love Rivers Academy because they have a great attitude about students and teaching. Every staff that is there is there to serve, their youth and their community. The staff work hard to create an environment that is inviting, calm, and student centered. They truly care about the students they serve and, in turn, this creates a responsibility among the students to attend school, do well, and respect the people who teach them. They have Spirit!!

Because they take kids in that are long term suspended from the normal school system and then they try to teach them to be successful.

The administration and staff are all dedicated to each student's success. In over 30 years as an educator I have never seen a true student oriented organization like Rivers.

I had my son enrolled in this school for a semester, I personally found it to be a 'special needs' school. Something that I was not told from the staff nor the director. Upon entering my son into a 'normal' school, he was held back one year. I was very disgusted and dissatisfied. I would not recommend this school to any caring, loving parent who wants their child to succeed in life.
