There is such a thing as taking in too many kids into one building. This is definately not the best school Buchanan County, VA has to offer. t cannot compete with Hurley Elem.? Middle School.

I have two children who attend Riverview, and I am a teacher at a local college. I feel that Riverview is definitely preparing my children for the future. This institution supports my children academically as well as socially. The teachers work extremely hard, devoting hours after school to ensure that my children are getting what they need in order to be successful adults. I appreciate their efforts. I also appreciate Riverview s administration and staff. There are good people at Riverview, and I feel extremely blessed.

Wonderful school with excellent security. I love the way you have to check in with picture identification. Kindergarten teachers are the best, kind & caring. Activities are superb. My child always loves going to school and misses school during vacation.

Our school is a living example of what schools across the country should be. We are a community of caring, hard-working, and intelligent people. Parents are always welcome to make suggestions and offer help. The building is ultra modern containing the latest technological equipment. Our students are very lucky to be able to spend the day in the modern day world. All classrooms are Internet accessible. From climate controlled temperatures to insulated controlled noise, our school offers a comfortable and pleasurable atmosphere in which to learn and work.

In 2012-2013 Virginia used the Standards of Learning (SOL) tests to assess students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8, writing in grades 5 and 8, and science in grades in 3, 5 and 8. The SOL tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Virginia. The goal is for all students to pass the tests.
