I attended River Grove Elementary School from pre-school all the way through eighth grade. I made wonderful friends that have stayed with me till this day as a freshman in college. I was taught by some of the most amazing teachers that I will always cherish and never forget. The school itself was always well maintained by the great maitenence crew. No adult in the building ever made the students feel uncomfortable, rather I felt I could talk to any teacher or staff member about anything. Going into high school, I felt more prepared academically than I could have. River Grove Elementary School is what made me fall in love with learning because of the environment it provided.

Very low funded, but the teachers do care about their students. When I came into high school I felt very ahead of students from other schools.
I wish they had a stricter dress code, possibly uniforms. I am a single mother that at times find it financially challenging to constantly keep up with the children's trends and my daughter's growth spurts. Uniforms would be so much easier for parents like myself that want to make sure my child is dressed good for school. However, I will say the school is a great school. The administration is helpful. The principal & counselor are very caring & dedicated in helping children express their emotions or fears. Bullying has never been an issue, there is absolutely no bullying allowed at River Grove. However, some parents seem to be very ignorant when it comes to this subject and should learn from the amazing students at this school.
