River Springs Charter School Reviews

RSCS was a great school in many areas and helped me prepare for my future. Some of their best programs that I took advantage of were CTE classes and Dual Enrollment classes. Both earned me college credit that I can use towards my general ed. However, I do believe the core classes in subjects like math and science are missing a few things to help students be college ready and understand the material being taught. Math and Science courses in all programs needs to be strengthened so students here can excel better in STEM courses. Personally, I want to be a STEM major and I believe the courses I took at MSJC better helped me than any of my math or science courses at RSCS. To make these courses better, I would suggest retraining current teachers in the area for each class they are going to teach, e.g., Physics, Algebra, or hire additional teachers with these specialties. Overall, however, I feel well prepared for college and am graduating with high honors from the State and my school.

I loved my experience at River Springs Charter School. I was able to gain first-hand college experience as a dual/concurrent enrollment student and the charter school structure allowed me to volunteer and work as a preschool teacher in order to gain experience in the education field. Through these volunteer hours and work experience, I was accepted as a merit based full scholarship winner of the Congress-Bundestag Youth Exchange to spend a year abroad in Germany, which I recently returned from.
I like that River Springs has various programs to pick from in order to further your high school experience. These programs also allow you to be more desirable to colleges. The keys program is great for independent workers who are looking for a vigorous work load in order to be college ready. However, the counselors and teachers should prepare students in terms of acknowledging how to apply for college and when to take the SAT and ACT.
