Riverside Academy - West Campus Reviews

Riverside Academy West is an okay school. I went to Riverside Academy West from 6th grade till I graduated high school. Throughout all those years, nothing much has changed, which isn't a good thing since some things needed to change. However, bullying was a very rare thing. But when it did happen, it was solved quickly. Teachers were very nice to their students and knew what they were doing. Riverside doesn't have many choices of sports and can get a bit lazy about it. Overall, Riverside Academy West is a very basic middle/high school. It has everything a school should have, but of course, not many options to choose from. However, it is a very safe school.

I went to Riverside Academy West from 6th to 12th grade. Its really good when it comes to students relationships with others. Not as much bullying, the teachers are all right depending on how you act as a student. They need upgrade on clubs and food. Other than that I had smooth years with them.
Riverside Academy West is an outstanding school. I have been attending Riverside West since I was in 6th grade. Riverside West is my second home. The students and the teachers are like family to me. They make you feel welcomed. Riverside West is located in a safe environment, so there's nothing to worry about. The principal cares about the students education and academics. I look forward to graduating from Riverside West next year. Riverside West will be truly missed.
