The administration could be better if they cared more. The teachers are okay, some of them are great teachers but have a hard time with classes. The classes tend to be too crowded. The consuleors don’t really help with much. They offer rigorous classes, which is good but some teachers aren’t that good at teaching AP or honors. The fine arts program is great. Since my freshman year, fights have cut down a bit. They offer a lot of dual enrollment options. The pep rallies are usually boring. You have to pay to use the lockers. The bathrooms are usually locked and not clean and are always out of soap. The food is gross, but they try. They are good for giving you the option to be college ready and we have a great football team, but they lack in every other category.

Riverdale High School has taught me about different cultures, and independency. It also taught me how to not take things for advantage. The teachers are excellent, and will make sure that you get the education that you need and deserve. The students work together to on everything, and creates a bond.
