If you are searching for a good school to send your kids to, this is not the one. It is the worst school that I've seen in years when it comes to supporting students and communicating with parents. When it comes to their academic counselors, it is better to hire a professional than to consult with them. My daughter asked for a letter of reference from a young male counselor. When she received the letter back it was so poorly written we did not submit it to the university. As far as academics, there is no diversity in their advanced classrooms and the governors schools. Students that are accepted into those "elite" programs look the same. You can do better than Riverbend.

Worst school in Spotsylvania county. I recommended no one go here. The principal Dr. Wright has the worst attitude with parents and some students. There are way better high schools in this county this is not a good school
