I love Riverbend high and I strongy believe we have the best teachers, students, and school spirit around. I hugely suggest choosing Riverbend high for you or your child's high school careeer, and go bears!
Riverbend High School is an excellent academic high school. It provides a student with a well-rounded education to get them ready for life beyond graduation. There are great teachers who truly care about a students education. The teachers don't just work for a paycheck, but work to change a students perspective on life and education. Riverbend has average diversity, but since it is based in a rural area it's more or less what you would expect. Riverbend has had its incidents when it comes to diversity beyond race. It's had many misunderstandings of cultural diversity, but nonetheless Riverbend has been able to thoroughly resolve each of those issues in a quick and reasonable manner. Therefore, I would have to say that Riverbend High School is a great place for a student to go if they are truly invested in their future academically and for extra-curriculars.
