This is my first year at river trail and i heard that they just started to switch classes but it is fake because they don't have lockers and the students have to carry the own supplies and books but they have music gym and art thou and there are a lot of fights on the middle school side and some students bully on bus in the gym and in the art room

My child has been attending River Trail Elementary for three years and I have been very happy with the school. Especially since this is the first year they have had art class for the students. River Trail now has music, gym, and art..are rare find in MPS.

This is my child first year at River Trail Elemetary. The school has quality teachers, but they are short staff. Teachers can not do there jobs if they have to watch 30 students at once.

This is my children's first year here. While I know public school's can have 'discipline problems', I feel this school's safety is compromised by students that should be expelled. In terms of curriculum, there should be more challenges for the middle levels. Mrs. Rhodes and Mr. Gonzalez are very effective and caring instructors and should be commended for their efforts.

This is my son's second year here - he started in K4. Great communication with teachers, lots of involvement, and grades K5 - 3 are limited class size. Weekly behavioral reports are given, and pretty good diversity in the student body.

I go to River Trsil im in 6th grade there. It is a presticous school to go too. The teachers there are working their hardest just to keep children and teens incontrol. And it is a wonderful place to be.

I really adore this school- it is a great open classroom environment, and my children did very well academically. Great teachers. They encourage parental involvement. I'd highly recommend. I've got 3 kids in MPS, and this by far is the best elementary and they have expanded to 8th grade. Unfortunately, I have to remove my youngest son next year because of the year round, and his older sisters are in high school, which makes it inconveient to have the different days off. I only hope the school my son will be going to is just as good. Most notable is the math skills my daughter attained here. She has been helping her older sister so they are advanced.
