Such a disappointment! I had so many high hopes. We have been at the school for years and it seems to get worse every year. Not to say that there aren't amazing teachers at this school, because there are. For me, the principal is Destroying the moral of the teaching staff. It sounds as if those really ...  Read more

Riverwood ES is new, clean and well-run. The teachers are very nice, the children well-behaved and the parents very involved. However, the curriculum of Riverwood ES, as well as most other schools in NC, is horrendous! We moved from a state with the best schools in the nation (to bad for us, right?) ...  Read more

Very unhappy with this school. My son's 1st grade teacher has left us with horrible memories. It is so unfortunate and disheartening that some teachers unleash their frustrations on innocent children. What's worse is that the office attempts to blame the child or the parents rather than deal with ...  Read more

I wish we could report a good experience here, but this is a cliquish school. The principal is flakey and my child gets no remediation for her learning disability. Totally reactive and not proactive approach here. Teacher was nice but unable to help.

Nothing but great things from this school. Lots of parents participate, and are very helpful. Community is awesome as well.

This school is the best school my children have been to. Every person in that school is very helpful and caring to the children. My child has excelled and was more than prepared for the next school year. I am very grateful for all the teachers and staff have done.

First, let me say the comments about no buses and chaotic drop off have not proven true. There are buses, and drop off in the am is actually easier than the bus that is a block from my front door! We have a first grade exceptional student (IEP w/autism). I cannot say enough GREAT things about this school! ...  Read more

I would definitely agree that she makes it hard to feel heard and to feel listened to. However if the former reviewer has information that proves that, you should take it before the Board or at least the RES Advisory Council (who somewhat privately exist) who can field your concerns. That is the purpose ...  Read more
