  • We LOVE this school. I don't think I could have purposely picked a better school for my daughter. She is being well prepared for middle school and knows all of the staff. The environment feels very safe and in the best interest of the children, that is what controls this school. I highly recommend this school.

  • My oldest is about to begin second grade and my youngest will begin kindergarten at Riverside. I can't give riverside enough priase. The education is outstanding and all the staff truely care about the children. Being a small school, it feels like a family. We wouldn't want to be anywhere else.

  • My children have gone to Riverside Elementary School since kindergarden. My older started middle school this year and was VERY well prepared for it due to the wonderful teachers at Riverside. The teachers really care at Riverside, and it shows! The administration runs a school that is safe, secure, and still friendly.
