My daughter graduated in the class of 2011. This was a WONDERFUL school. I did not grow up here, I grew up in another location outside Pittsburgh then left for the military. 24 years later as I was preparing to finally move home with a daughter going into 6th grade, I researched the area and schools carefully. I didn't care for my old high school, so I began researching online and found the Riverview School district my #1 choice. My daughter loved this school district. She flourished here and the school is small enough where the teachers are really one-on-one with you. There are plenty of activities for extra curricular activities to keep the kids occupied and prepare them for the honor rolls. I was amazed at how many of the students are on the honor rolls here. Someone on here (a student naturally), commented on the school going down hill. All I can say about that is this, that comment came from a student, not a parent, and I HIGHLY DISAGREE with that assessment. This school district and it's teachers are the best! I have ZERO regrets for relocating back home into this school district. I was blessed to have found just the right place to raise her.

Riverview School District, Oakmont/ V erona PA is the school that all 3 of our children and 8 grandchildren attended . There are many advantages to Riverview including that a student can participate in many extracurricular activities and also receive an excallent education including a recent addition of required Financil Literacy class. Because of the small size, teachers can be familiar with any student problems and assist them or refer to proper helpers. Forbes Career Technical is also available. Grades have enabled most of them to attend colleges of their choice.

I am a current student at Riverview High School and can say the school has really slipped in the last few years. When I was in middle school a few years back, most students were doing great with keeping their grades up and keeping good behavior. Today, half of the senior class is missing credits and there are more fights and bomb threats than I have ever seen before at the school. If you move into the district, really consider talking to some of the current students that go to school here before making your kid put up with the unsatisfactory teachers and administration.

It's interesting the dates on the below-reviews; I think RHS was the school they describe but unfortunately has gone downhill considerably in the past 5 or so years. Yes there are great, bright kids who graduate and do well- but there are also way too many who slide through and come out woefully unprepared for the future. The environment is coarse (to put it nicely) and despite largely-bright, committed, and caring teachers... I would be hesitant to send my child here.

Riverview is a small school with a big heart for their students. My daughter graduated in 2004 with honors and they helped set the foundation for her future. Mr.Rosenberg, the principal at that time, would stand at the door in the morning and greet every child with their name and some praise. Where else do you see that happen? The teachers followed his lead. That gave the students the knowledge that they cared for them and it showed in the way the children progressed in their studies and everyday living. Out of 89 graduating students that year almost half of them were honor or high honor student and almost half into sports or extracurricular activites. I grew up in a inner city school and could only wish that all children would have the opportunity that Riverview provides. I Applaud Them!

Riverview High School provides a 'private school' atmosphere due to small class sizes. My son has been able to participate in the music program as well as take advance level courses to his benefit. There are many teachers who are excellent and provide excellent service to the student population. I am generally pleased with his educational program but would like to see more opportunities available for all students who show interest in their education.

I have been to many schools and this school was by far the best. The teacher-student environment is wonderful. It is a small school, which allow teachers have a better relationship with their students. The Riverview High School faculty go out of their way to help students. This school also has high testing scores and have won awards in the past. Additionally, Riverview's Key Club is very active and has one many awards. To sum it all up Riverview School District is a friendly, helping, active school environment that will lead your child into the right path.

I could not imagine a more caring envirnoment than Riverview High School. The teachers were not only excellent in the classroom but were personal and became good friends of mine. I feel like Riverview prepared me for college better than most of my college classmates' high schools did - and the majority of them went to private academies. Overall, its a great place. Yes, course selection can be limited due to its size, but with such individual attention paid to students, any detriments are made up for ten fold.

small school, caring teachers, seems overwehlmed at times, for small school all students participate in extracurriculer activities so activities are not cancelled due to lack of participants.

This school is a great place for your kids to go if you want them to get excellent education from excellent educators! The teachers are extremely nice to all their kids and never have any complaints about them!
