Riverside gives excellent dedication to the students. My Cousin loves it ever since she attended riverside she has gotten smarter and more deticated to her work. She no longer gets grades under eighty-nine. Riverside shows lots of pride every time i isit they always have more spirit then the last time i visited. They always come up with new ways for students to express themselves. They either paint a mural or come up with other artistic talents. So riverside is an amazing school. Students should attend Riverside if they want to get smarter and more deticated to there work. GO RIVERSIDE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This school is my son attends this school and im very disapointed in the way the school deals with issues. the principal of this school is not looking out for the best intrest of the students. this school is more worried about bad students and punishing them rather than teaching the ones that are there to learn

Riverside is a school of racism. Riverside is also to strict about how you dress (you cant even wear two different color shoes), or colored shoe laces. They're just children and I feel they need to express them selves and the majority of the children dont really mean it in a gang related way. If you are any other color than hispanic than you are not respected in this school.

Overall I think the school is a pretty good one. Although I do think that they are a little too hard at the beginnign of the school year on the first year students (6th grade), as the students are adjusting to a lot, being in a larger school and with a lot more kids than they have been with in the past.

About the tests


In 2012-2013, the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) was used to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8; in writing in grades 4 and 7; in science in grades 5 and 8; in social studies in grade 8; and end-of-course assessments for English I, II, and II, Algebra I and II, biology and US History. STAAR is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Texas. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

The different student groups are identified by the Texas Education Agency; if there are a small number of students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


Texas uses Accountability Ratings to indicate the overall performance of each school and district. The ratings are based on TAKS test results, dropout rates for grades 7 and 8 and school completion rates for grades 9 through 12. Schools and districts rated under standard accountability procedures are designated as Exemplary, Recognized, Academically Acceptable or Academically Unacceptable. Schools and districts rated under alternative education accountability (AEA) procedures are designated as either AEA: Academically Acceptable or AEA: Academically Unacceptable.
