I put a lot of thought into which school district we would live in and was proud of my choice to send my child to hse schools. Elementary school was wonderful and I have high hopes for high school. Riverside, however, is a failure for a school district with such high ratings. The district has put a strong emphasis on bullying and makes the parents go through bullying training for their background check. However, the school doesn’t actually do anything to prevent or stop bullying. They have taken my child on a field trip without notifying me. If there had been an emergency I would not have known where my child was. They have shown videos in class that a geared towards a much more mature audience without any notification or permission slip. There is a general attitude that they have more right to make decisions for your child than you do. I highly recommend against riverside intermediate and Jr high schools.

I would highly recommend this school for 7th grade because the science and the math teachers taught me that science and math can be really fun. The next year, some 8th grade teachers are really bad at teaching their subject and on top of that one teacher hates me so much that I hate going to math class now. In 7th grade math used to be really fun but in 8th grade math is really stressful. That’s the reason why please go to this school for only 7th grade and don’t even think about going to this school if you are an indian. Thank you for reading.
Middle school is never good but I feel like things could have been handled better here. The dress code/treatment of girls vs. boys was especially annoying and sad to see in a middle school that was supposed to be one of the bests in the district. I think it has improved since I went there, regarding that principle, but it was hard when I went to school feeling good about my appearance then having a teacher tell me it wasn't appropriate just because I was wearing leggings, which are too form-fitting somehow. The food wasn't that great either. However, some of the best teachers I've ever had taught there (Mr. Thurber, Mr. Jackson) so I will say that they do know how to pick their staff.
