i give this school 5 out of 5 stars because, 1. i LOVE the teachers, they are good @ teaching, we lear A LOT and they are really kind. 2. THe consalers keep everything u tell the segret, they don't even tell ur mom or dad! 3. the students, they are kind (most of them) 4. What we CAN'T say, we get a referl if we say any bad words (I'm glad that we do get one it's not at all good to use those words....I NEVER use those words.) 5. The school. It's just the best school ever made All in all i recomend this school to everyone, your child would love it!

My son jumped into RMS in the 7th grade. He has loved everything about the school. After going to several other very large school, was totally impressed control in the classrooms. It has been a much better learning experience. Everyone in the school was very friendly.

Riverside Middle School does not provide a safe learning environment. The classes are over crowded and only the higher functioning students are able to address their educational goals.

Riverside Middle School is a really good school with programs for both accelerated and special needs children. I love it here and would not like to go anywhere else. I have great friends that are supportive and am in many clubs and activities that are supportive and help me with being a teenager.

The students at this school are very supportive and appriciative and are awesome. The teachers are smart and sospisticated. The sports and coaches are excellent. I think this school is underrated.

There is a big gap in the communication between parents, teachers, and the principal. After having my son in the ASC class, he was sent home a letter which we didn't agree with. So I contacted the principal and I thought resolved the issues. Later realized the teacher and principal talked and made changes which reflected in my son recieving a disciplinary referral and a note about their conversation to bring home to me. Communication needs help. Teachers feel they have more authority than they do and we as parents need to keep them in their place. The principal should see to that. They are educators. And their actions are too! They are to mold our children, but here there are some that are going to ruin it for there self-asteem and willingness to want to learn or listen to there so called educators. Listen to your kids and act on it.

The school is clean, however, if you are looking for an exceptional educational expierience for your child keep looking. Some of the teachers personal class room rules are rediculous, and discourage learning. What they encourage is a way for a child to find their way around the absurd rules, such as if homework is late, whether from an exused absence or not, it's an 'F'. When your child is not performing, you find out when you get the report card, no contact from the teachers. I think they enjoy watching the average child fail. There needs to be some serious changes if they expect to compete with other school districts.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Washington used the Measurements of Student Progress (MSP) to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8, in writing in grades 4 and 7, and in science in grades 5 and 8. The MSP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Washington. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
