I love this school for my kids, I have 2 kids attending it. Harray for Mr Smith, grade 1&2 teacher!! He is the best teacher-- God Bless!
I love all the teachers, and appreciate how much of their time they give to the children. I do agree with one of the other parents about the office staff. Sometimes great and other times not so great. Depends on the day I guess. I do love all of them though. The principal seems to care for the overall progress of the school and deals fairly when their is an incident to respond to.
I wish the teachers/facualty/staff cared if a child was leaving/having problems. I had a child with a problem, we pulled him out of the school. Not one call, letter or nod of the head from anyone regarding the situation. Comings and goings seem to not be cared about. This came full circle, when we attend Camp Meeting and my child saw old friends and faculty. Not one person said they wished he was back. WWJD! It made me sad to know he felt unwanted in a christian setting. Our other child is very happy and healthy at Rivergate. Grades are high and attitude is great. Just a differant personality from our other child.
The pre-school at Rivergate is amazing, full of learning and fun. The pre-school teachers are very friendly. The prices are very reasonable, especially considering the level of care my child received. The teacher is leaving this year, but I'm sure the quality of the program will stay. However I did not have as good of an experience when dealing with the administration at the School, I felt it was unorganized, and I was treated rudely.
This school has been extraordinary for my children. The school provides a structured, safe and loving environment. The staff (from the front office to the teachers to the latchkey staff) have shown a sincere dedication to ensuring a healthy opportunity for my children to grow academically, emotionally and spiritually. The students are offered healthy, vegetarian meals that are prepared daily. I have complete confidence in and appreciation for the staff at Rivergate.
The leadership at this school has major problems. The office personal need to learn better PR. I was always treated with rudeness and disrespect from the school secretary. The 2, 3, 4th, 5th, 6th and 7th grade teachers are wonderful and true examples of true Christianity.
This school is exactly what we were looking for. It is small and offers more than larger schools. THe 4th grade teacher is FABULOUS, she cares and actually hugs the students and gets excited about teaching. I appreciate the cleanliness also.
The school would benefit from a different leadership than is currently in place. However, parental involvement is outstanding. When my daughters attended, safety was never an issue, but use of funding was questionable.
