Riverside School District in Beaver County is a really great school! Everyone is very welcoming and friendly. It is a very close knit community and being a small school everyone knows everyone. Which I thought was great. However, the school is a bit run down and the paint hasn't changed since my mom went there in the 1970s. Overall, I loved going to Riverside and being a panther and would want my future children to attend as well!

Many teachers in this school district are dedicated to their work and care for the students, yet some of the teachers do not even put effort into their work. Many teachers simply throw work and information at the students instead of making sure that they actually retain the information. Aside from that, the school is a great learning environment with a few teachers that can make an impact on students.
Small Red-Neck highschool where you for sure will find your groups of people. The Athlete Group and the Theater arts group the country group and the not so country group. the Tech group that go to Tech school every morning.
Than you have the Nerds and the crazy table The ones who probably smoke weed on the weekends :) Teachers are fun, laid back and simple. The school is simple so you don't get lost to much in a huge building, air conditioning is in some classrooms but most of it is a small simple building.
