The Principal was seen running and yelling at parents in the parking lot of the school with students watching plus the child of the parent that was being chased.. The school needs to have a sigh that says "BEWARE OF BARKING PRINCIPAL". Very Good roll model..
Did you know that Rivercrest Elementary has been names a PTA School of Excellence? This is do to the wonderful parent involvement that we have at our school. They work so well with the teachers and administrators. The administrators are top-notched! They are always available. I can't say enough great things about Rivercrest and we are just beginning our journey in this school.
Great school. Teacher are friendly and helpful. My children were given the individualized attention based on their needs and abilities.
Rivercrest Elementary has the BEST teachers and administration! The teachers go out of their way to really love and nurture their students. Mrs. Tate and Mrs. Woods are amazing administrators. They both have a heart for students, teachers and education. We can't wait to see how Rivercrest Elem will thrive in the Bartlett City School District. Rivercrest is truly a hidden gem.
I love this school the teachers and staff are great. This is my daughter first year here at the school and she loves it.
Be forewarned, if you live within 1.5 miles of the school your child cannot ride the bus. For working parents, this leaves 5 years olds walking miles alone, parents paying an average of $200 a week for before and after school care, or problems at work.
Wonderful Godly teachers...thank you Mrs. Tate, Mrs. Pittman, Miss Washington and Mrs. Merriweather for giving my children the greatest education. We love you Rivercrest!
Rivercrest is an excellent school for my kids. the enviornment is safe for the children and has a vast number of nice and caring teachers. The principle was awarded the best in the state of Tennessee on the year of 2012-13
Absolutely loved the school, teachers, administration in all. The atmosphere was so inviting. The staff and administration truly welcomed parents and loved on the children. My child's teacher was awesome. Great Elementary School!
My children LOVE Rivercrest! The teachers & principals are wonderful. Parents are welcome to have lunch with their children, volunteer, tutor, & be a part of their strong PTA.
I love Rivercrest! It is a wonderful school. Rivercrest's teachers, staff, and principal are terrific to the parents and the students that attend. I could not be more pleased with Rivercrest!
I am truly blessed for my children to go to RIVERCREST! They are my family. THey have the BEST teachers and principal. They are always thier with smiles and an open door for me and my children. We have been there 6 years next year and it is the BEST elementary school around!
Rivercrest is an awesomely diverse community school with excellent teachers, kindhearted administrators, and involved parents. Not only are they doing a fabulous job teaching the kids, they give back with Kids Kan food drive, Hats for Homeless, Hoops For Heart, and raising money for St. Jude. Rivercrest students will grow up to be citizens who care about and respect the world around them. There are tons of opportunities for older students (APEX, Chorus, Guitar Club, Chess Club, Beta Club, Student Council). The PTA is fantastic, and does a great job at supporting family involvement through monthly iMOM and All Pro Dad breakfasts. This school is awesome! I'm proud to be a Rivercrest Redbird!!!
Rivercrest truly is much more than a school, it is a FAMILY!!! I have three kids in school here and we have been here for 5 years now and we LOVE it. I will admit I was very nervous and apprehensive about school when it was time for my oldest to start kindergarten because my children were never in day care, but I am here to tell you that all that worry was for nothing! Every single teacher, administration and principal that we have ever had contact with at Rivercrest is amazing! All of the leaders at the school really do love the children! I wish that we could stay here and not have to leave for middle school! Thank you Rivercrest and keep up the good work!!!!!
Mrs Tate is a true asset. There is no doubt that Rivercrest is full of quality leaders that love the children and make them the number 1 priority. That starts at the top with Mrs Tate. She not only loves her students, but the parents as well and makes sure they are always encouraged to be involved. I'm a proud parent of two sons that have attended Rivercrest.
Terrific school. You will love our school. Great teachers, awesome administration and very involved. PTA.
Rivercrest is a wonderful school my son loves it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!The staff and the whole overall facility is great!!!!!!
The faculty and staff at Rivercrest are the best. They really care about all of the students and it shows when you walk in the door. It is an excellent school with excellent teachers.
Rivercrest is a fantastic school becasue of the leadership and staff. My two boys were educated for several years at this school )I'm Navy) and I can tell you without doubt that this principal (Ms Tate) and the teachers are the best I have seen in my wanderings in TX and CA.
My second child just finished school at Rivercrest. We have nothing but praise for the school and the staff. Mrs. Tate has done a wonderful job here. We've know her at this school for over 10 years. She has guided this school and staff in the right direction. The kids love it here show gratitude with hugs. The staff is attentive to every kids needs. The facility is top notch also.
