I'm a 7th grade student in Rivesville Elementary/Middle School. I think the school is awesome! I learned so much from the great teachers! The best school I have ever went to!

I am very satisfied with my child's experience. The principal and the teachers seem to genuinely care if they learn. It also has a large, beautiful campus and wonderful playground.

from 1 to 10 a perfect 10. The teachers are great, they call the parents if the think something is wrong with the child, They keep you updated on students work or they would let you know if the child never completed an assignment and they give a little time to get it completed.
