My son is bussed from Fort Belvoir to attend the AAP at Riverside Elementary. This is his second year and I cannot speak highly enough of the teachers, staff, principal, and program. Each staff member in the office knows the children by name and greets them accordingly. There is always a smile on their face. I see teachers interacting positively with the students and encouraging them in meaningful ways. My son has had some emotional difficulties these two years and the guidance counselor and social worker have been on the ball staying in touch and facilitating intervention. The clubs are so much fun for the children. Again, if you are considering Riverside, please do. The old reviews here are outdated and I think you will be pleasantly surprised if you give it a try!

Our daughter has had a great two years at RES with wonderful teachers. With the new principal, the overall feel of the school has improved- teachers, staff, and students seem genuinely happy to be there! Communication is from the administration is much better, and IME was already good at the classroom level. The addition/expansion of the school's STEAM program has also been very appreciated.




- a
2 years at this school and the changes in one year have been amazing. After years of neglect from the school board, we have a new principle who is going to great lengths to change the atmosphere. Both years our teachers have been excellent. They respond immediately to my emails. Their doors are always open for meetings. They call me with positive updates. Class sizes are small and manageable. Communication lines are improving.

Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
They have adopted a new motto, "Effort & Attitude " and have clearly made this a priority throughout.
