River View High School, is a small school! Yet it’s filled with great teachers who help you along the way. They teach and understand the responsibility of having students education, in their hands, they give great opportunities for learning. Something that could be better, more electives, so students could learn more occupational jobs.

I liked how a lot of the staff that taught there, even the janitors, once grew up in Finley. Some of the teachers there were also some of my classmate's parents' teachers when they went to school. It was such a small town that everyone knew each other and their family. This could be good and bad. Since it was so small, rumors would get by fast. School funds for sports and just anything in general weren't the best. We didn't have soccer or tennis. Our uniforms were old and our gym, locker room, and bathrooms were old and ugly. I did hear they got remodeled after I graduated due to a state grant though.
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!
