Small campus. Good school. The students are pretty good actually. Very fun! The teachers are very nice and have one on one focus with students when asked for help. There are a few teachers who should be fired to be honest. Including, Ms. Acker and Miss Cowdrey. They are not very good at their job. Cowdrey is always late to her 1st period class and has cussed at the students many times before. She has threatened students to suspend them for dumb reasons. Acker plays favorites amongst her students and talks very badly about some of her classes, but mostly students.

My experience at Riverbank High School has been a long one, but it has also been a good one. At Riverbank High School everyone knows everyone, so it was not difficult for there to be strong connection between students. Also, by attending Riverbank High School I had the opportunity to take classes with much less people in each class compared to other schools which gave me the ability to have more one on one time with a teacher if I needed the help. I do believe that the teachers at this school are some of the best because they are interested in the students success more than they are focused on their paychecks. Although I did have a good experience at Riverbank High School I would like to see some improvement in some things. I would like to see an improvement in the effort towards school activities like dances, homecomings, and school spirit.
What I like about Riverbank High School is that, despite the limited resources they have compared to other high schools, their teachers and investments in things like chrome books give the learning experience at Riverbank High an edge over other high schools. What I would like to see change is a higher emphasis in disciplining students. Students seem to go to school without a purpose, without goals and have no self-dignity or respect for authority, much less peers. This is not the case for everyone but it is widespread throughout each grade.
