  • Reviewed by Parent/Guardian on May 01, 2010
  • Rating: 5 (5 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • I am writing a thank you letter to the staff & came on the website to get the school address. Our grandson is a student there & the change in him is incredible.I could write 2 full pages on the positive changes in his behavior,his grades, his attitudes, his happiness, & on & on. He entered River Bend 2 years ago after being out of school for a whole school year because he as so depressed about school. He was suicidal, failing, being bullied, 13 yrs old, crying every night, begging his parents to let him stay home. He now is so happy, so proud of his school the staff, gets top grades, does not want to miss a day & is on student council. He loves all his subjects & now loves to read. I could go on & on, but I know because of the teachers at River Bend, they have saved our grandson from a life of failure & depression. A thankful grandmother
