River Dell Regional School District Reviews
Some of the teachers are unsatisfied with their pay in comparison to the work they put in - this ultimately affects their motivation to teach students well and passionately. There is also no higher level physics class offered at the high school other than AP Physics, which is a double period course. Physics is a necessary class for most majors in college, and not having the choice to take a physics class that is not AP puts students at a disadvantage, and less ready for college.
The best thing about River Dell is definitely the tight-knit community, as well as the supportive student body. No matter the sporting event, whether it be baseball, football, or basketball, the student body always has a large turnout and supports their peers proudly. In addition, the diversity in interests is amazing, as every season the drama department puts together a stellar play or musical, and the select choir puts on fantastic concerts for the whole community to see. With that being said, the administrators undoubtedly support the multiple programs offered here whole heartedly.
The academics, athletics and music program at River Dell are great. Every student is driven and invests in his/her own talents and excels at them. A wide variety of classes are offered, but I feel that APs should be offered to sophomores as well, so that the AP classes can be spread out over a span of 3 years rather than 2 years. I also do not like how there is such little school spirit and more should be done on uniting the school together.
