My children have been at River Gate since it opened, and they have had a wonderful experience with caring teachers and excellent leadership. The school is new, safe, clean, and focuses strongly on making thoughtful and consistent use of the techonology availble. This technology consists of data projectors and classroom computers in every room. Some classrooms have SMARTboards as well. Students at River Gate receive a quality education that focuses on building character and attaining real-world problem solving skills to prepare them for their future careers.

This is a fairly new school. My children attended River Gate for the two years that it has been open. We have enjoyed being a part of the River Gate family! My children's teachers were the best they have had. Ms. Canzoneri, the guidance counselor at River Gate Elementary, was a God-send in helping my child who required special guidance. She went above and beyond. This school is great because of the teachers, the quality of education, and wonderful parent involvement. It will be very interesting to see how much greater the school can become now that a new principal is joining River Gate!
