I was a student from there a long time ago at this school. I just thought that school was the best school I have ever gone to! This school helped me with the subjects I was stuggeling on and to have a great education now because of the teachers and staffs help I have been a straight "A" student for years!! :)

Excellent with the students the teachers are genuinely interested to make your children succeed. The staff is really nice and sweet and so is the principal. They really motivate the kids.

Firstly and most importantly, the teachers are wonderful, kind, creative, and dedicated. Their curriculum in reading and math is challenging and I have watched my children grow immensely in these two subjects. The school is lacking in extracurricular subjects, however. They do have PE and Music every other day. This is not the school's fault, but a state funding issue. Lastly, the principle is not friendly to parents or students. The students are afraid of her and many parents complain about her lack of professionalism or general kindness when discussing any child issues.

This is a wonderful school with excellent teachers! Our children have enjoyed attending this school and have learned so much! I truly appreciate everything they have taught my children! The teachers are kind and truly care about each childs sucess. They have fun while learning at Rivers and I am so happy to have been able to place my children there!

I attended the school as a child from K-6. Back then Altus Public Schools had elementary football, and cheerleading in the elementary schools. Since then the schools have restructured to add preschool to Rivers and moved fifth and sixth to a Middle School. Now a parent of a child that has attended the school for two years and being involved with the PTO there for two years, I see wonderful things for the school. It is extremely difficult to get parents involved at the school, however, the PTO continues to raise money for the school through fundraisers and numerous school activities such as (Watermelon Welcome, Spag. Dinner, Cherry Dale Fundraiser, Santa Shop, Book Fairs, Family Game Nights, and Spring Carnival) to help better the education and classroom experience for the children. The teachers and principal are wonderful and involved with the children both inside and outside of school.

This school is the best (not greatest) the city can offer in Elementary schools. I found a huge gap in curriculum between Kindergarten and 1st grade. My middle daughter had a hard transition. My oldest daughter had no challenge in the 4th grade. She breezed through with very little homework. The school she attended in a previous state was more of a challenge for her than this one. Most teachers are willing to let parents be involved, but not all. The principal is not the greatest.
