I think several teachers are very ineffective. There are a couple teachers I know of though that are quite effective and do help learning. The other teachers though barely help with anything. I know of a teacher who just puts on videos for his class all day and gives them a paper with questions. I know of another class where the teacher just gives you a chem book and tells you to answer the questions in it. So for the most part, very ineffective.
No, barely half of the seniors in the school graduate. Few teachers stay after school to help their students academically. There are no incentives to students who are actually good and hard working. The school just focuses on the bad ones who don't care about anything. If you get A honors the school gives you a coupon for Domino's to get a free small pizza and that is it, and you have to go to a specific Domono's. Not even one that you live close to. Almost all the students fail in this school. Kids graduate who shouldn't even be graduating.
As a student at Riverview East Academy, I have to say this school is just terrible. They force their students to wear uniforms. Which isn't to bad, but what goes inside the school is terrible. The staff at the school is okay. There are some good teachers and staff. The counselor at the school is no good though. Its rare for her to actually help. The student body has a drug epidemic going on in it. The school has several fights. I have never even heard of a kid actually being expelled from Riverview East Academy. I guess what expelled means is suspension. The inside of the school isn't much better. It's not very clean and just looks ghetto. If you want your child to have a good high school experience I would send them to a different school. Walnut is the best option in the district but there are other good choices as well.
Riverview East has been a disappointment. They say they want parent participation and feedback, but when you try to work with the issues with them, it is not easily accepted. We had a situation where the school not only didn't deliver notes to parents via daily notes,and did not follow through with behavior plans, that their school wrote! My chils is on an IEP and this disorganization was unacceptable, particularly when I tried to, politely, communicate with school. It seems as though you have to be loud and rude to get anything done these days. They are clearly more interested with pushing students through curriculum to get them on to next grade, and in meantime the misbehavore get the attention from the staff.where is the quality education and informing parents of options for their kids? I was FLOORED by an email survey from superintendent asking did we know as a charter and within CPS limits, they are to provide bussing? We were told no. Also told no on accelerated classes as option, Ohio Dept Of Ed says differently. If parents only knew what right they had, maybe a lot more would care to participate in school more and not write it off as a it's not worth caring type of thing.
