This school is in a bedroom community, unfortunately I'm sure what happens at home happens at this school. The staff is unable to listen to parents suggestions on proper dealings with the students as far as discipline. Don't be surprised if you see a story about this school on Dateline in the future.

Both of my children attend Riverside Middle School and we couldn't be happier. The school environment is very welcoming and safe. Programs are put into place to ensure that all kids are reached and feel accepted by their peers. My son is part of a mentorship program so he has been able to help other students that may be struggling a little. Both of my children feel academically challenged and supported.

We have a wonderful experience with 2 students at the school! The administration team is top-notch! They are have an open-door and are more than willing to talk and listen. Parents need to be involved before then send out negative reviews! I volunteer at the school almost everyday and know almost the entire staff. We have no complaints and the academics are getting better every year! This adminstration had come in and taken away the gang concerns and deal quickly with any concerms! The "reverse 911" is actually a auto-dialer to help keep parents informed about events! Many of us appreciate the communication! Thank you to the school for making our experience a memorable and good one!

This school is awful. We've had to deal with unsatisfactory administration MANY times. Many of the teachers aren't awful, but the administration behind it is absurdly bad. Another thing to note from the school is that you get a "reverse 911" style type call almost every night for incredibly stupid things such as "don't forget a coat tomorrow." However, if something important DOES happen, such as parent-teacher confrences, don't expect a call. At all costs, avoid this school.
