The teachers are amazing at this school. Every student gets that academic help they need with plenty of time to ask questions to teachers and a great student to teacher ratio. The students are welcoming and reported more polite than the average school. It's a wonderful place for students to spend their day learning.

Riverton High School in the tiny little town of Riverton, Kansas is a great school. Sure, like any school there are bound to be bumps here and there. Riverton isn't lucky to be free from things like bullying and stereotyping, but what school ever is? I feel like at Riverton, with my small, senior class of forty-nine students, that we are lucky to have as little bullying and stereotyping as it is. At Riverton I feel like I can be who I am without being judged. Instead, I'm encouraged to embrace who I am. Riverton is also lucky enough to have some very amazing teachers who want to watch their students succeed and try every possible way to help us when we need it. There is honestly nothing I would want to change about Riverton. It may be a small school, but don't underestimate it. The students and faculty I have met in the last four years at Riverton High School are all big parts in creating who I am today and I'm really gonna miss them when I graduate in May.
The teachers are very nice and really try to give students as much individual attention as they need. There are multiple opportunities to get involved in clubs and sports. It is very easy to make friends and have fun.
