I think this school could do a lot better in the communication department. People/staff should treat the families with respect and keep them informed of changes. Also, the secretary at the front desk is so rude and short. She is not a people person at all. She is the face of the school and when people come in they should feel like they are wanted, NOT like they are a problem and she doesn't want to be bothered. She should make them feel warm and like there child is in the best care. People should the impression that everyone at the school is like that. I'm really thinking about going a different route.
My daughter has been at RMA since Kindergarten and I have been very pleased with our experience. Her reading difficulties have been addressed and continue to be addressed and we are kept informed of her progress Teachers take a person interest in thier students as does the adminstration I had a child in the other schools here in Graham and was greatly disappointed not only in the teaching but leadership as well . I tell everyone I meet with school age childern that RMA is the best choice for education Lori Barlow parent
We have been blessed to be a part of River Mill Academy for 9 years. As with any organization, there have been ups and downs. Regardless, we have always been able to count on solid teaching, attainable future goals and a safe environment. We truly believe that our children would not have received a better education in traditional public schools. Right decisions are always right when direct participation and discussion is involved. Taking for granted that things are always as they appear leads to misunderstanding and misinterpretation. Get involved without gossip and truly be an example to your children and the other students. They learn from you as much as they learn from the teachers.
We may have not made the right decision.... 1/3 of our fourth graders class failed EOG testing and 1/4 of our 5th graders class failed EOGs.
We have 2 children at River Mill academy. We have been very pleased with the environment, staff and learning experience at River Mill. I am proud to say that my children attend RMA. It is a well respected school in the community. We haven't experienced typical public schools, but I constantly hear from other parents that the environment at RMA is much safer and lends itself to learning much better than public schools.

This school has many secrets that are kept hidden. All the drama and who-did-what does not provide a good learning environment
I am a mother of 6. My children are happy, well educated, safe and they feel the teachers and staff really care about them. They are always available for questions from me and my children. My family and I are very proud to be part of the River Mill family. Erik and Sherri Hendrix,parents
My children and I are a really pleased to be part of the RMA family in Graham N.C. I feel this is one of the best schools in our area, and I am very proud to let people know this is where my children recieve an excellent education!!
River Mill provides a safe and constructive learning enviroment for all students. They offer a wide range of activities for students K-12 including recreational teams for the youngest students. My child has benefited greatly from the smaller class sizes, highly qualified quality teachers and 'family like' atmosphere.
River Mill Academy's administrators, faculty and staff are dedicated, caring professionals. River Mill provides children from kindergarten through high school with exceptional classroom learning experiences along with extracurricular activities. The limited enrollment and small class size helps to create a caring family atmosphere among faculty, students and parents.
River Mill Academy is an exceptional school. The teachers and staff are very friendly and supportive in all aspects. They care and appreciate their students and their families.
