River City Believers Academy
Amount of homework: Too much

The school used to be on an A/B schedule, and the homework was very resonable and if you had one study hall you could either get all your work done, or have minimal work left to do. Sometimes at the end of the class once everything that needed to be covered was you may have 10 minutes to work on homework. This was an amazing way to set up the school. The school has now gone to a weird 6 class a day schedule and it makes everything very complicated and the home work that you are given could take all night to finish.

DO NOT GO HERE!I started this school in my 8th grade, when I shadowed there in 7th it was very different. You could tell that people cared and that the supplies were limited. But things went downhill from there. With a new principal everything changed, and for the worse. The students they started letting in were not actually christians as they were supposed to be, bringing bad people and drugs into the school. The school has done nothing about it and the administration does know about the problems. The "Chapel" that starts our day everyday is not in fact Chapel it is simply were our principal stands infront of us and says the things that might normally be said over an intercom system in a normal sized school. Also I would like to point out that most of these reviews have been by parents and they do not truely understand the school like the students do, and the school is not actually like the parents think. Also I think that it is HIGHLY suspicious that alot of the reviews were all written on the same day or close to it.I REPEAT DO NOT GO HERE!

At my school, we do life!!! We are a community of about 130 students. As teachers, we have the opportunity to know EVERY student from Pre-K to Seniors. You see that growth in relationships within the students themselves throughout ALL grade Levels. It is an amazing atmosphere that the Holy Spirit has our school in!!!!

RCBA is a great place for children to grow academically and spiritually. The administration, staff and faculty are excellent examples of how to live a Godly life. The atmosphere and attitude on campus helps the children learn about the Love of God and how to live out their faith at school and in real life.

This school is very well organized. The academics are well on top. I brought my daughter from other school and this school was ahead on reading. Your students will come out reading in kinder and reading chapter books by late first grade. The teachers are very involved in kids academics and if parents have questions, they are available to assist. The students grow spiritually and academically. Everyone is so loving with open arms. We are a family here. The teachers make an impact in the students life. I'm very glad I read the reviews from greatschools.com that helped us find this school.
