My experience through high school was phenomenal. I was involved in so many clubs and activities I loved it. I've been basketball and volleyball varsity manger since my freshman year. I'm in ASB, Class treasurer, FCCLA, and a yearbook editor. We have so many clubs available that would fit any kid in our school, it really is awesome. Same goes with our classes, it's so cool that our teachers know every single one of us name to name basis. There's so much one in one interaction with a student and teacher because our class rooms are small enough. One thing I would like to see change about our school is how we discipline bad grades. We have people flying all over the places with F's and not only does that affect them but also is as a student body because of sports. If you have a F you don't get to play. I feel like our after school tutoring should be mandatory for being failing. Other than that I love my high school!

I like the amount of time the teachers spend to help students understand their work. They will often answer any questions students have after school if they don't understand it by the end of the class period. However, I believe that the school way of disciplining students is mostly ineffective as for things like lunch detention it's more like a game.
River View High School is a very small school and because it is small everyone it is like family. You can have a lot of one on one time with teachers if you need help and there are after school tutoring if you still don't understand things. It is a very excepting school and there are so many types of different people. You don't have to worry about not fitting in because there is most likely someone just like you here. We have a lot of sports and clubs, and if you don't have a club you want to be a part of you can come up with one of your own. All in all River View is the best!
