This school puts on the front that they truly care about there students but they have teachers there that talk down to kids and belittle them. I talk from experience as I was one of those students. A change needs to come to that school or it should do every kid a favor and shut down. Horrible school in my opion. If I had any choice to go to a different school I would have taken the chance in a heart beat.
When my kids first started I thought I found school heaven . Now I see the true colors. The principal doesnt consider parents ideas and some of the teachers talk badly behind students backs to other students. We have found it to be a school of gossip not fact.
My son has attended North River since Kindergarten, he will be in 4th grade 2007-2008. We live in Aberdeen and he takes a 45min bus ride to get to school. We believe that North River has the very best education for him based on the classroom size. He is in a 2nd/3rd split class with a total of 10 kids. Also the teachers at North River are excellent, and have a lot of one on one time with the kids. I strongly feel that the kids benefit greatly in learning at their own pace because of the class size. Also I volunteer at the school any time I can. I hope that our art and music programs become stronger. We are working hard at getting a track built for our school and are very excited about adding that to our small sports program. North River School is about community!
