Riverside ES is a wonderful school. My daughter is in Kindergarten and I couldn't be more thrilled with her teacher and the education that she is receiving there! The staff is truly dedicated and it's obvious they love what they do for a living!

My daughter is a student at Riverside and recently had a promblem with some boys bullying her on the bus. Both her teacher and the school counselor took the matter very seriously and helped all the students involved work through it. I applaud their zero tolerance for bullying policy! My daughter is thriving ...  Read more
