  • 08-09 was our first year at Riverchase and we loved it! Everyone from the Principal to the custodians are friendly, helpful, and work to see that your child succeeds. The teachers are great about communicating with the parents. The one concern I did have was about being able to play tag on the playground. My child's 2nd grade teacher told her they weren't allowed to play this game because they would be touching other students. I did not follow this up with the principal. I would definitely give them a 5!
