River Bluff High School is a beautifully built school with a plethora of resources at every student’s finger tips. We are given the newsest, most innovative technology, as well as a breath taking campus and athletic fields. The academics at River Bluff aloud me to start on my college credits early, a rare opportunity for most high schools. The only area that needs work is the administration. Students clearly need more guidance than what is given, since the schedule is so open with free time. Ultimately, my experience was great - I will defiantly miss it!

River Bluff is a beautiful school! It is kept so clean by the faithful janitorial staff, and it is piled high with new technologies! I have really loved almost all of my teachers, and I feel like they are well-prepared to teach and prepare us for college as well as life. CREW has also been a very special experience and has connected me with those I would have never otherwise built relationships with. I also appreciate the closer connection I have with my teachers in CREW. The only thing I would change about River Bluff is the people. I haven't really connected well with many students. Being a high extrovert, people really matter to me wherever I'm at, so it has been hard to not feel as connected as I'd like.
River Bluff High School has changed my perspective about the reality of school. I used to dread high school, believing that it would be the worst experience of my life. River Bluff has showed me that high school can be the best experience if you let it be, with great friends, good teacher to student relationships, and pushing hard for your grades while giving you independence. If I could change one thing about this school it would be the food! Everything else is great, and River Bluff would be the best high school experience anyone could ask for.
