River City is an amazing school. Due to the small student body, it feels like a family. The staff are friendly and caring and treat you with respect. All of the problems presented in the other reviews have been taken care of as they were from earlier years. Do not hesitate to send your child here. They will not only receive an amazing education but will also grow in their knowledge of the Lord and how to apply their biblical beliefs to the real world. I have gone to this school for years, and from personal experience, your child will absolutely flourish here.

RCBA is a very conservative school under the administration of a small group of individuals selected by the church, River City Community Church. I personally disliked the way administration handled certain situations. Several students that have come and gone can agree that a certain Priscilla Torres acted unfairly out of her own selfish feelings and desires. To make a ling story short, going to this school would require you to expose your own personal life to the authorities upon demand or request.
The teachers and staff are wonderfully helpful, friendly, and enthusiastic. I loved my classmates, whom I developed great friendships with.
