Excellent school! The principal is a strong leader runs the school well. When I drop my daughter off I know that she's in great hands

This is a public school that has/had some wonderful teachers. However, the lack of communication by the administration is frustrating. Dealing with parents at the school who seem to have only one goal and that is to punish teachers is another problem. This could be a great school, but some things need to change.

My daughter is in kindergarten and we both love Riverchase! There are always great things happening at the school. We helped put in a large garden, they are always doing after school activities, and really try to get everyone involved. This is a great public school! We are excited for first grade!!

this is a horrible school - my child has a learning disability and one of the teachers repeatedly made fun of the student; the principal didn't do anything about it (the teacher gets away with being a true BULLY)

Very organized. Facilities are in very good condition. My impression is that students are happy and enjoy the school. Gifted and talented program is available, but not many activities related to this program. Overall a good school.

This is my daughters first year at Riverchase ES, we have had a wonderful time interacting with office personnel, teachers, tutors, school nurse plus her assistant and especially the principal. My daughter is a member of the choir and the art group, both keep her interest at a high level and has become a priority in our household. The location is excellent, the building in well thought out, the grounds are safe and secure, and the most important aspect is that the children seem confident in themselves.

I am somehow satisfied with the work load that my kids return home with as homework. I will like to see them more occupied after school with school homeworks rather than my personal assignments to them. They are brilliant kids and makes A's and honor roll's and I will like them to keep it that way. So please stress more on take home activities and homework.

Coming from Louisiana school's there is no comparison to what my daughter has learned at Riverchase Elementary. Every report card she has had nothing lower than an 'A'. What she is learning in the first grade is probably on a 4th grade level in Louisisana, not unless they attend a private school. But even then they are not learning as much! The only thing I do not agree with is not only happening at Riverchase but it is at all Texas schools, is that I believe they need more Physical Education than what they are getting. There are more over weight kids than ever and they need more than once or twice a week of Physical Education. I feel they should have it every day for an hour. Instead they are craming there heads for the TASKs test. Not only the Teacher should teach, the parent's needs to also!

My child went to the ESL program (English as a Second Language) at this school for a part-year (about 4 months) when we first came to USA, and within 2 months started speaking fluent English without much push at home at all. Next academic year she qualified for acceleration to a higher grade than her age, and subsequently went on to the best-gifted program in Texas. I attribute her success to the loving care and careful attention received at this school, which shaped up her communication and confidence immensely.

Students are not challenged enough.I don't understand why this school can't keep up with exemplary rating like the neighboring schools.
